America is seriously all about burgers and Umami Burger is a prime example of excellence sandwiched between two buns. I've heard things about Umami Burger, about how amazing their burgers and fries are - so of course I jumped on the opportunity to try the food for myself when J and I were looking for something to eat at The Grove.Read More
