Pasadena is in the midst of a legendary heat wave. Save yourself the trouble of firing up the grill without forgoing your favorite summer staple.

Umami Burger, on Colorado Boulevard, debuted three new sweet-savory burgers for you to savor without the hard work.

Negroni BBQ Burger

Part mushroom burger, part beef patty – this hybrid is an unique creation. The Negroni BBQ Burger, features a special patty which is half Umami Burger’s signature beef blend and half wild mushrooms, topped with kale, apple and bacon slaw, smoked gouda and a Campari BBQ sauce. The refreshing apple slaw adds a touch of sweetness to the creamy gouda and earthy burger patty.

The Negroni burger was inspired by Campari’s Negroni Week and The James Beard Foundation’s Blended Burger Project, The Blended Burger Project is a program led by James Beard Foundation which encourages chefs to create a healthier, more sustainable, and tastier burger while also educating diners about the many benefits of a beef and mushroom blended hamburger patty. This limited edition burger is only available until July 31.

Manly Chick Burger

The Manly Chick Burger is the latest addition to Umami Burger’s core menu. Inspired by Umami Burger’s Manly Burger, The Manly Chick features a new chicken breast patty, house beer-cheddar cheese, bacon lardons, smoked-salt onion strings, Umami Ketchup and mustard spread. This beef alternative patty is a perfect choice for summer and it’s well-balanced flavors are a hallmark of the Umami experience.

Falafel Burger

The Falafel Burger is replacing Umami’s black bean burger as a vegetarian patty option. This light, crispy burger comes with a surprising pink inside, from beet-infused couscous, and crushed avocado, romaine lettuce, tomato, a dollop tzatziki and pickled red onions. The tzatziki adds a refreshing, slightly tangy flavor to the mouthwatering patty and balances the slightly sweet pickled red onions. The Falafel Burger will fill you up without leaving you feeling heavy – perfect for sweltering summer days.

Don’t forget the sides – indulge in Maple Bacon Sweet Potato Fries or order juicy, tempura-battered onion rings. Experiment with the four complimentary sauces that come with every order – Garlic Aioli, Jalapeno Ranch, El Diablo, and Umami Ketchup.

Quench your thirst with a Tropical Green Iced Tea, which comes unsweetened, or with a crafted cocktail from Umami’s changing menu.
