The Fifth Taste

December 14, 2015 By Diana

Our latest exclusive burger, the Holiday Bird, has been out at our restaurants for you to taste. It’s always exciting to see all of your Instagram pictures and hearing how much you are enjoying it. Here are some of our favorite features of what people are saying about the Holiday Bird.


“The Holiday Bird ($14), encompassing all the flavors of a traditional turkey dinner, with a turkey patty, disc of (very good) cornbread stuffing, spiced Japanese yams, house-made gravy and ginger-cranberry chutney, and umami-boosted fried sage—and for each sold, $1 will be donated to Meals on Wheels America” – Orange Coast Magazine

“You guys you guys you guys you guys you guys Umami is doing a Thanksgiving burger this fall and it has its signature turkey patty, topped with a cornbread stuffing patty, house-made turkey gravy, fresh ginger-cranberry chutney, spiced Japanese yams, and sprinkled with Umami-dusted fried sage ohmyGod ohmyGod ohmyGod ohmyGod. (Also, $1 of every single Holiday Bird goes to Meals on Wheels, so you can feel like a good person.)” – Thrillist Los Angeles

“Leave it to Umami Burger to have another special edition burger in stock for the holidays. I’ve been loving all the holiday foods out lately. As you know, Umami Burger constantly pairs up with celebs and does these special limited burgers that are for a good cause. This time, $1 of every ‘Holiday Bird’ will go to Meals on Wheels America.”  – Kristie Hang


It’s no secret that Umami Burger has a special place in my heart.  We live near the Hollywood location, so that’s where we visit the most often… and I almost always get a Turkey Burger.  It’s the best one in LA. But THIS!!! This is their special Holiday Bird, available now through whenever people think it’s appropriate to start throwing out their X-mas trees. – The Actor’s Diet
