The most memorable thing I had at Umami Burger wasn't the burger, it was the ketchup, Here's what I wrote about it at the time:
The concoction, which looks and smells like regular ketchup, seems bionically enhanced, a sensation your tongue quickly senses with its heightened flavor, an engineered savoriness not normally associated with the condiment. Yet you know it has nothing to do with its sweetness, its saltiness or its sourness: It's all the essence of umami.
