Umami Burger has launched a menu of new and returning food and drink items. Returning to the roots it was founded on in 2009, the “Newmami” menu brings back original Umami Burger selections with updated buns and patty recipe, Impossible “meat” options, sides, appetizers, and desserts, while introducing new items and combination boxes, such as The Umami-FRY ME Combo, The OG Umami Sampler, The Umami Deluxe Combo, and All About The Chicken Combo. The new menu items will be available at all 10 brick & mortar locations and 24 ghost kitchen locations globally, with signature menu items including:

  • Umami Burger – Umami sauce, 4 oz. smash patty, lettuce, pickles, tomato, caramelized onions, American cheese

In addition, team Umami has brought in Jason Jeffords as the brand’s new Beverage Director. One of Jeffords’ first projects includes debuting a new drink menu at Umami Burger that ranges from local craft beer and wine to boiler makers (beer + shot combo) and classic cocktails on the rocks—with a twist—like the Old Fashioned, Mai Tai, Cosmopolitan, and Margarita. In addition, Jeffords has created a menu of milkshakes to accompany Umami Burger’s savory menu items, with add-on toppings and options to make it “adulting” with booze. Sample flavors include:

  • Banana Matcha Shake – vanilla ice cream, matcha cream, banana, and whipped cream (add spiced Bacardi, coffee frosting, Coffee Nut M&Ms, and a tiramisu donut)
  • Piña Colada Shake – pineapple ice cream, coconut cream, coconut shavings, and whipped cream (add Malibu Rum, fresh pineapple, coconut frosting, and puffy pastry pineapple turnover)
