Remember when the US burger hype reached new heights around late 2009? That was when the LA-born Umami Burger, founded by Adam Fleischman, took America by storm with its handcrafted, oh-so-savoury calorie bombs – including the original Umami burger, which incorporates shiitake mushrooms, caramelised onions, roasted tomato, parmesan crisp and umami ketchup. Now taking on the homeland of umami, the 'fifth taste' famously defined by Japanese chemist Kikunae Ikeda, Fleischman's outfit followed the likes of Shake Shack and Carl's Jr to Tokyo in spring 2017. In addition to all the familiar favourites from Umami's regular menu, this Aoyama shop serves up a few Japan originals.
