Umami Burger: Stick to the Classics

Earth Burger on the left, Truffle Burger on the right
Yesterday, we went to Umami Burger for lunch again and ordered the Umami Burger, Earth Burger and Truffle Burger.  I still like the Umami Burger and Earth Burger the best; the Truffle Burger was dominated by gooey, bland cheese and actually didn't have that indulgent truffle taste.  Actually, the truffle taste in the Earth Burger from the white soy and truffle aioli is much more pronounced and ethereal.  Despite being a veggie burger, I'm starting to prefer the Earth Burger to the Umami Burger; I've ordered the Earth Burger over the Umami Burger the last several times I've been to Umami.  I usually get the Kombu Meal #2 with the Earth Burger, market salad and green tea, for $16.  Not the cheapest lunch, but really tasty.  I like the market salad a lot; it is filled with all sorts of different greens from daikon sprouts to mung bean sprouts, and the dressing is tangy and different; it's a good contrast with a rich burger.
