Umami Burger is rolling out a charity burger in honor of former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, who is apparently a big fan of the gourmet burger chain. The rocker-inspired patty features braised shiitakes, caramelized onions, American cheese, avocado spread, wasabi aioli and a Parmesan crisp, based on Slash's love of spicy and savory flavors. A portion of the sale proceeds will benefit the Los Angeles Youth Network. Priced at $15, the burger will be available in stores nationwide from September 26 through November 27, while supplies last. The Slash Burger also coincides with Slash’s first horror film from his new production company, Slasher Films. The feature Nothing Left to Fear will hit select theaters October 4.
