Umami Burger has decided to get in on the pumpkin spice latte craze with its own version of the beloved Starbucks holiday drink. Only the Umami latte comes with a beef patty and a bun. And no latte.
The Umami Pumpkin Spice Latte Burger comes topped with garlic aioli, tempura kabocha, spiced mascarpone and a coffee glaze. It’s available now at all participating Umami Burger locations for $12.
That’s $8 more than it will cost you to get a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL).
The burger comes with a little attitude. On the Umami Burger website, the company points out that many pumpkin spice products don’t contain any pumpkin.
“The lattes are made with a flavored goop, the candles are just scented wax, and don’t even get us started on “pumpkin” Oreos,” reads the site.
There may be real pumpkin on the burger, but it’s a little disappointing they couldn’t figure out how to incorporate a little whipped cream topping on there too. For the hardcore PSL fans.
