Name: Richard Blais


Where do you live: San Diego, CA

Favorite style of Burger: It’s all about the condiments for me – I love a simple burger with a good blend of meats and a solid mixture of condiments.

Favorite Childhood Burger: I was an average kid – McDonald’s and Burger King were always the favorite. My first job was actually at a McDonalds, so I had my fair share.

Burger that haunts your dreams at night: I only have good dreams about burgers!

What is the one Burger you’ve always wanted to try but still have not: I’ve been dying to go to Father’s Office in Santa Monica – I keep trying to go, but it’s always so busy and I can never get in!

The secret to making a great Burger: A great, signature blend of a variety of meats, fresh condiments and great seasoning, all between a soft bun

Under no circumstances whatsoever, what should NEVER be put on a Burger: Honestly, I believe that most things can work on a burger as long as you have the right combination of ingredients and flavors. I focus on using different types of meat and unique toppings to create burgers that people haven’t seen before. The one thing that I absolutely will not eat is insects, so you will NEVER see an insect-burger on any of my menus.

If you could eat any Mythical Creature which would it be: I wouldn’t mind a unicorn burger

Name one Burger in LA that for once, people should get off a plane and go eat instead of In-N-Out: Umami Burger makes a killer burger!
