Popular burger restaurant coming to Main Street, San Vicente
By Kerry Slater
Popular restaurant Umami Burger will be opening two new locations each just feet from the Santa Monica border.
As reported by Toddrickallen, Umami Burger will be opening at 235 Main Street in Venice in the former space that used to be home to fusion taco spot Komodo, just a block from the Santa Monica border. In addition, Toddrickallen also reported that Umami Burger is also opening at 3050 San Vicente Boulevard in the former space that used to be home to Le Pain Quotidien, less than a block from Santa Monica.
When these locations open, they will join over 20 restaurants worldwide, including at 525 Broadway in Santa Monica.
Umami Burger gets its name from “umami” which translates from Japanese as a “pleasant savory taste.” Along with sweet, salty, sour and bitter, umami is one of the five basic tastes. Every burger at Umami contains umami-rich ingredients. The meat (American wagyu beef) is seasoned with umami sauce, which contains soy sauce and many of the burgers are topped with Parmesan cheese, another umami-rich food.
