Umami Burger Pickle Plate

Umami Burger in Palo Alto has a delicious pickle plate that is worth mentioning.  As you can see from the picture, there were a few different kinds of pickled cucumbers, some pickled carrot and ginger, okra, and some pickled green beans.  It was all quite good.  In particular, the pickled carrot and ginger was quite good, and it was an interesting combination.  Also, I liked the two styles of cucumbers.  As cukes are just a mainstay of pickles, I always enjoy having them done a few different ways.

Overall, I thought Umami Burger was good.  It wasn’t quite noodles; I was of course planning on heading to ramen that evening, but got dragged along for burgers instead.  However, I’m not sure the flavor of the actual burger was all that, especially given the hype about its particular flavor.  The fries were good too.  I would go again.  It has a more refined ambiance than The Counter, which is something too.

If I remember correctly, they had pickle fries on the menu as well, but I think they were sold out or something when we were there.  I suppose that is another reason to go back.

    Pickles are a great addition to so many dishes. Growing up we always had a jar of pickles on the table every night at meal time. Such a satisfying compliment.
