On Sunday, my friends and I went to Umami Burger in Downtown LA. It was a really quick walk and it was really nice being able to talk with friends on a warm spring day. The downtown Umami is clean, trendy, and the ambiance FEELS very downtown. They have a fully stocked bar so you can grab a cocktail with your dinner, and Umami is really close to several popular bars in the area. I would recommend this place for first dates, dinner before going out, or even a late night stop for food on your bar hopping trails.
Our table shared Fries to start: Manly Fries, Truffle Fries, and the dipping sauces (Chipotle was my favorite)
For the Burger, I got the Manly Burger. It was good, but I think I like the original Umami more. There was nothing wrong with the manly one, it was just not mouth watering, I need to come back ASAP~ kind of a burger. =T
Different dipping sauces for the fries: ketchup, garlic aioli, chiptole sauce, ranch
beer-cheddar cheese, smoked-salt onion strings, bacon lardons, umami ketchup, mustard spread
