Umami Burger is one of my two favorite restaurants in Los Angeles so far.

Umami is “a fifth basic taste (along with salty, sweet, sour and bitter) that is commonly associated with Asian foods. It can be helpful in pairing wines with foods. Its legitimacy is still under debate in some scientific circles.”

I don’t know about the definition, but everything at Umami Burger tastes like mushrooms. What can I say? I love mushrooms. We went the other day for work and I took a few pictures.

I went to a real LA party last weekend. Drink:Eat:Play organized a speakeasy party The Music Box in Hollywood. I dressed up in my closest to a twenties approximation and went with some friends. The party was really an expo for different liquor distributors, which isn’t quite as romantic as a speakeasy.

All that milling around and sampling liquors fired up our appetites so we went to Fred 62 for post-speakeasy dinner. We were all dressed up, but I ordered the burger anyway. The burger was a big delicious mess. Who cares about dry cleaning bills anyway?
