Umami Burger

Popular California hamburger restaurant chain Umami Burger will open its first restaurant outside the U.S. in Tokyo in March. This hot burger joint is in Portofino building in Kita-Aoyama. Umami Burger, which was founded by Adam Fleischman in Los Angeles in 2009, takes gourmet hamburgers to a whole new level.

The word “umami” itself is Japanese, meaning savory (or the fifth taste), and fans have long been waiting for the restaurant to open an outlet in Tokyo. The menu includes favorites such as the signature Umami Burger, Truffle Burger, Manly Burger and Falafel Burger.
