LA’s Umami Burger opens in the OC

Umami Burger offers up the 5th Taste in Costa Mesa

On a rainy Saturday, Umami, the gourmet burger sensation that’s swept LA, had a soft opening at the Camp in Costa Mesa. Umami is a Japanese word for "savoriness." A bunch of foodies had the chance to "Savor Umami Burgers" and get a preview of tastes to come.
