The Fifth Taste

November 9, 2015 By Diana

Our Los Feliz location recently went through a renovation. We re-designed the entire bar and made the entire space feel more open. We’ve also added some more skateboard art pieces we created ourselves (check out the DIY here). This weekend we caught up with our general manager, Tatiana, at Los Feliz to ask her some questions to share with you all.

Restaurant:  Los Feliz
Position:  General Manager

If you didn’t work at Umami Burger, you would be…

I would probably be slanging drinks as a bartender or utilizing my Esthetician license (skin care).

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received about working in the food industry?

To be genuine behind your work. Success comes from your team. Constant development of others helps in the aid of developing yourself. That can be utilized in any career, not just the food industry.

If you could create your own Umami Burger, what would be on it?

Ohhh good question….lets see Bacon Double Cheeseburger

  • beef patty
  • cheese tot smushed all over that bad boy (kind of like crusted on top)
  • beer cheddar
  • bacon
  • minced onion
  • fried egg
  • miso mustard & ketchup as sauce

Never tried it but I thought I would get creative haha

 What is your favorite restaurant (besides Umami Burger)?

I love to eat so I have a lot of favs I would have to say my go to is either Granville & Take a Bao

What’s one thing that you wish people knew about your restaurant?

Being in the 2nd original restaurant I want to keep that real Umami culture that made me fall in love with the brand 3 years ago.  Passionate people, passionate food.
