The much hyped but well-deserved Umami Burger finally opened its Palo Alto location this past week. With its close proximity to Stanford, Umami designed the restaurant with a library theme. My wife really enjoyed her Umami Burger (the Original) and I had the Manly Burger (beer-cheddar cheese, smoked-salt onion strings, bacon lardons). Next time I plan on trying their Palo Alto-only special, the All Nighter, their signature beef patty topped with maple-glazed slab bacon, cheesy tot hash brown, smothered with a savory red-eye (there is coffee in it) gravy.
They are still working out the service kinks as commented on Yelp and in our own experience of incorrect burger and a mustard request that never came after two friendly reminders they still earn a return visit with their awesome food.452 University Avenue
