    Any burger will be an excellent choice. Don't forget to include truffle fries with your order! If you're feeling ambitious, add the maple bacon fries as well!

    Get the umami burger. It's delicious with a little something extra that makes it memorable! The tempura onion rings and skinny fries are delicious. The sweet potato fries are good but a tad too sweet.

    I was pleased to find the umami tastes I loved in Japan had come to the States. I was also pleased to find that sumo wrestler Yamato Yukimura was no longer looking to "settle the score."

    Big fan of the truffle burger & manly burger. one of these days I'll make it to the turkey burger and/or the 'anti-burger'. Also, if I'm carboloading, I ask for the off-menu item: handmade tater tots

    Location caters primarily to young, urban crowd, so no kids' menu available here. However, you can order tater tots and grilled cheese, which are off the menu, for kids. Whole milk is available too.

    The Hawthorne: a temp addition to the menu. Beef patty, cognac-parsnip purée, cognac fondue, hatch chiles, and crispy hatch chile straws. Death by burger!

    Best burger in LA. Try the Truffle or Original burger! The cheese & bacon fries with beer-cheddar is amazing!

    Start with the original and work your way through the menu. Protip: Make sure to bring a friend so you can split burgers and try more. Hmmm truffle...

    Earth Burger is the best veggie burger I've yet had...and made from mushrooms instead of beans. The truffle cheese fries are crazy amazing

    You may by default get a rare burger that menstruates all over the plate... not that anyone's judging, if you like it that way.

    OMG! Port and Stilton Burger all the way. Cannot go wrong with side of onion rings and a bottle of mexican coke. Or i guess I should say coca-cola! Sorry to put people on high alert. Port and Stilton!

    Loved the Umami Burger. The parmesan crisp adds a nice touch and I love shitake mushrooms! Oh and try their ketchup!

    You can so gluten free. Ask for no bun with your burger and they will put it in a lettuce wrap.

    Recommend that you go with a friend and get two types of burgers - then cut them in half and share. For example: one truffle and one green chili.

    can't go wrong with either the SoCal or Umami burger; that with a ginger brew and some sweet potato fries, you've got a damn good meal.

    You've got to try the ice cream sandwich with macaroons as the cookie and if it's cold--get the cappuccino--it's bomb!

    Port & Stilton, Manly Burger (not on menu), sweet potato fries, tots (not on menu) and Cherry Coke (alcoholic) = best decisions you'll make

    They don't always have it, but look for the Manly Burger on the Specials board. Yeah, I know some of the other Umami locations have it permanently, but I don't live near those.

    Try truffle burger + smashed potatoes ..they are both worth trying..
  • Alice K.
    I got the truffle burger- it was ok, a Little dry. They put truffle on everything here and it seems a little bit gimmicky. Not a bad meal- but definitely overhyped
