Los Angeles can easily claim to be the Hamburger Capital of the World because is has beautiful year round weather and a hamburger stand or restaurant on just about every corner. Take a walk, grab a burger. Meet a friend, grab a burger. Waiting for the light to change, grab a burger. Los Angeles can also claim bragging rights to inventing new hamburgers, presentations, and franchises all the time. Of late — Umami. It’s a hamburger stand for grown-ups. Just hamburgers. Meaty, beaty, big and bouncy. And, that indescribable fifth taste, umami. Don’t want a fancy restaurant or a plasticky fast food counter with pimples asking you what you want or a joint where you feel compelled to wipe the seat before you sit? Want a fancy, flavor filled adult food at street prices? Then check out Umami. Of all the things to do in Los Angeles you have to eat. Eat well. Umami. Yo mama!
