The art of the savory dish is typically reserved for appreciation by the foodie and for the Umami Burger lover. Oh, don’t get me wrong, all of our taste buds truly appreciate the fifth neighborhood of taste: Salty, Sour, Bitter, Sweet and of course savory or as it is commonly referred to as Umami. This is that area that you instantly recognize but find it hard to pinpoint as a desire in your culinary choices.

Umami Burger has that covered.

The Classic Umami Burger is composed of mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, caramelized onions and a parmesan crisp that floats over the other ingredients.  Those ingredients do lend plenty of flavor to this burger but don’t be fooled; the beauty is in the Umami house ketchup. If you want savory that is where the magic happens, maybe it mixes up with the rest of the stuff between those two soft buns but it is the magic potion.

Just when you think you think you have it all figured out the curveball comes when the idea of the Hatch Burger comes up.  Roasted green chiles, cheese and garlic aioli all tucked into a package bordered by two soft Umami buns. Personally, I have been having this burger for years in Los Angeles so the moment it landed on the Las Vegas strip this option at Umami Burger became the best burger in Las Vegas.

Wait, Did I Mention The Beer Garden?

The major difference between this Umami at SLS Las Vegas and the versions you can get in Los Angeles and in their other locations is the ability to place a bet and the outdoor beer garden that overlooks the Las Vegas strip.  The outdoor space feels like an upscale sports bar and has plenty of room both for watching games and for mingling. The Sports Book also allows you to put a few dollars on your favorite teams while enjoying beers with the fresh air of the Las Vegas strip to greet you.

While you are at SLS Las Vegas don’t forget to check out the Sayers club right next door to Umami Burger, 800 Degrees Pizza for an affordable meal, LIFE for a Late night party and the rooms for a little relaxation after Vegas has “Vegased” you.
