Umami Ramen, Sushi & Dumplings is now open in the former home of City Taste at 930 Wayne Ave. in downtown Silver Spring.
We reported in April that City Taste had been placed on the market for $1.59 Million in a now-deleted LoopNet listing. There was a lease option on the 1,691-square-foot space, and the property tax bill for 2022 was $11,100.25, which included water and building maintenance costs.
City Taste opened in 2017. In addition to sushi and sashimi, the restaurant also served Chinese and Thai cuisine. The extensive menu listed 70 sushi rolls alone. Other choices included teriyaki, hibachi, and tempura selections, noodle dishes including pad thai, and Thai curry choices, many of the familiar Chinese dishes like General Tso’s chicken, Hunan, and Szechuan entrees, and vegetarian options.
Compared to City Taste, Umami’s menu is decidedly more Japanese, with sushi dominating the menu, as well as offering ramen, takoyaki and soup dumplings.
According to the restaurant’s online ordering website, operating hours are 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.
