Umami revisited

Ever since my last post “umami!”, I’ve been craving a good burger.  So, why mess with perfection?  Here’s to another great meal at Umami Burger!

This time, I had their Sunny side burger – a crispy parmesan cheese twill with a fried egg, truffle butter, and truffled arugula.

Next came their Ahi tuna burger to mix things up a bit.  A seared tuna made into a burger patty with a wasabi tartar, avocado, daikon sprouts and gingered carrots.

On the side, I had their tempura onion rings with a side of ranch dressing and house ketchup.  These were SO good – not like any I’ve had in an actual Japanese restaurant.  The batter was light and airy and went great with the sauces.

What a great meal!
