U Mini, Umami Burger's pared down concept that opened in Westwood last fall. For the most part, you can get smaller five-ounce versions of Umami classics like the signature Hatch, Cali and Truffle burgers, but also new additions like a chicken burger with lettuce, tomato and avocado, a vegan chickpea patty burger with citrus herb goat cheese spread, and a grilled cheese.
But then there's this, the B.U.B., which stands for Big UMini Burger, an oxymoronic double-stacked vintage cheeseburger with twice the beef, cheese, bacon, minced onions and an extra bun in the middle. That's two 4.5-ounce burgers. The big "mini," along with most of the burgers on the menu, are priced less than $10 and available for take-out. And since U Mini serves as a sort of test kitchen for Umami, look for a larger version (two 6-ounce patties!) at all Umami locations now.
