Date night. How many of us make it a point to actually go out on a date with our spouses? Experts say it’s a must for any marriage. I happen to agree with it. I love going out on dates with my husband. We rarely do it, so when we have the chance to go out and enjoy each other’s company, it’s always a treat. Recently, we’ve had more and more opportunities to do so. The kids are getting older and they are constantly getting asked if they can sleep over with their BFFs. Then, with the teen being almost non-existent on the weekends, we have found ourselves alone and hungry on the weekends. But where to go, is always the main issue between us.
The holidays are here and it’s the perfect time to go out and check out some restaurants that are offering holiday menus! Umami Burger, located at the Irvine Spectrum offers food, bar and live music Entertainment at the Umami Outdoor Lounge.
What is Umami Burger?
They story behind Umami Burger is all about amplifying your taste buds by dropping some serious umami flavor bombs into their food. Taking ingredients that are sweet, salty, bitter and sour and transforms them into memorable and craveable tastes experiences. The food is actually pretty tasty.
A group of influencers were invited to taste their holiday menu and we got a glimpse of what can be your next full course meal. From classic dishes such as pot roast and mash potatoes to my personal favorite, The falafel Burger!
Falafel patty, beet infused couscous, crushed avocado, romaine, tomato, tzatziki, pickled red onion. It’s so yummy. I had 3!
The Irvine Umami Burger location is also gateway to lively entertainment. The Irvine Improv is located right through the restaurant and if killing two birds with one stone is the name of your game, then dinner and a show is a must for your next date night! We were treated to a night of belly laughs and the comics did not disappoint. This was my very first time at an improv! Can you believe it?
The Irvine Umami Burger is located at 527 Spectrum Center Drive, in the Irvine Spectrum Center.
