Last year’s seasonal special at Umami Burger was the Pumpkin Spice Latte Burger.
The burger patty was first topped with aïoli (garlic mayonnaise), followed by:
Kabocha tempura, the kabocha standing in for pumpkin
Spiced mascarpone cheese
This year, a fan favorite, the Holiday Bird turkey burger, returns. It’s both “an entire holiday meal with each savory bite,” and “everything but the apple pie.”
Here’s what’s in-between the bun:
Turkey burger patty
Cornbread stuffing patty
Spiced Japanese yams
Fried sage leaf
The Holiday Bird is available at all Umami Burger locations throughout the holiday season.
For each burger sold, one dollar will be donated to Meals On Wheels America, which supports more than 5,000 community-based senior nutrition programs nationwide.
If there’s no Umami Burger near you, nothing’s stopping you from re-creating it at home, perhaps with a side of sweet potato fries in addition to those spiced yams.
