We decided to go to Umami Burger to celebrate Allison's birthday this past weekend, because we'd never been before.
We went to the one in Hermosa Beach - we always enjoy walking down Pier Avenue, though on a Saturday night it is unfortunately filled with bar-goers and people trying to push their products.
Allison got the Umami Burger - she decided that since it was our first time there, we should try the burger they're known for. Since we tend to share when we eat out, I went with a burger that's only available at the Hermosa Beach location - the Baja Burger.
On the menu it is described as a fish taco re-imagined as a burger, and that's a perfect description. All the best things about a fish taco - the crispy batter around soft fish, the crunchy coleslaw, the flavorful salsa - were in this burger, all surrounded by a buttery bun.
