Andy Samberg teams with Umami Burger to create 'The Samberger'

In Hollywood, there’s only one real way to know that you’ve made it as an actor—and it has nothing to do with a golden statue or a specific number of Twitter followers. It’s all about a burger.

Of course, that’s not at all true. But if it were, Andy Samberg would be the man (if he isn’t already). Samberg is the latest to join Umami Burger’s Artist Series by crafting “The Samberger.” $1 from every burger sold will be donated to The Center for Early Intervention of Deafness in Berkeley, California.

“The Samberger” consists of an Umami beef patty topped with sport peppers, roasted tomatoes, chopped Umami dill pickles, a kombu relish, roasted garlic aioli, poppy seeds, and yellow mustard. It was inspired by Samberg’s love of Chicago-style hot dogs. Or, as Samberg said in a press release: “I worked tirelessly ‘munchin around’ with the Umami Burger team to design a burger that would best represent everything I stand for. We tried many combinations and flavors, and ultimately landed on a Chicago Dog-themed burger that has literally nothing to do with me. But it tasted really good so we went with it.”

The burger will be sold at participating Umami Burger locations nationwide for $13, beginning on September 23.
