Lured its customers into using their fifth taste called ‘Umami’, this California-based burger restaurant established its first branch in Japan back in 2017. If you were wondering about the fifth taste, generally, we only have four taste buds which are sweet, salty, sour and bitter. However, this fifth taste (Umami) is described as a savoury taste which can be found in cooked meats such as burgers.
The burgers are surprisingly big and there are so many great choices. Among the options are Umami burgers, Teriyaki Samurai burger, Falafel burger, Black Pepper Meat Ball burger and so on. You will notice that each burger buns are stamped with the letter ‘U’, the first letter of Umami. The burgers have a very soft texture and you need to eat it using forks and knife as it is impossible to fit in your mouth.

Besides burgers, Umami also has different kinds of fries which are very hard not to order, decorative milkshakes, wings and salads.

The burgers here are very huge in size and the meats are cooked with such perfection unlike in any fast food chains. Most repeated customers recommend trying the Double Burger where they load two big beef patties, bacon, egg and vegetables. Other than that, Grand Monterey is also a top contender. Filled with a single patty, but swarming with sautéed mushrooms and cheese. This burger is definitely for those who love mushrooms. The juice that oozes out from Baker Bounce burgers is undoubtedly the greatest.
