Dripping juices, charred meat patty, and toasted buns—it's hard for me to turn away from Chris Cullen's photograph of the namesake burger from Umami Burger in Los Angeles. The burger is topped with a Parmesan tuile, roasted tomato, shiitake mushrooms, and grilled onions for mega umami action.

Our Los Angeles correspondent Damon reviewed Umami Burger back in March and put it on his list of top 5 burgers in Los Angeles.
