I finally went to Umami Burger in LA! I’ve been to the one that recently opened in NYC, but this was my first one on the west coast. The truffle burger was just as delicious as I remembered it. I devoured it so quickly, if it weren’t $12 a burger, I would’ve ordered a second (and I NEVER do that with burgers). I also got their super yummy sweet potato fries and a Mexican Coke (LOVE!). The Umami was connected (I think) to a Fred Segal store so it was sort of a “mini” restaurant that wasn’t the biggest or most impressive – especially when compared to the NYC location which almost feels like a high-end lounge with its decor and full size bar – but it was a good experience nonetheless, and I can’t wait to go back!
After dinner, we walked over to the Pier where my sister got to ride her first ferris wheel! The view was incredible and it was really neat to see the city and beach all around us.
Have you ever been to Santa Monica?
