Developed in collaboration with Ernesto Uchimura, a founding chef of the original Umami Burger, the "Ernesto" is the signature offering at The Salty Dog Gastropub and the Salty Dog Grill, both found on select ships in the Princess Cruises fleet. The gastropub was unveiled in 2016 and the grill in 2017 as part of the line's Come Back New Promise, $450 million multi-year product innovation and cruise ship renovation campaign to enhance the line's onboard guest experience.

"Creating the ‘Ernesto' as my namesake burger and having it offered aboard Princess ships around the world has been such a proud moment for me," said Uchimura. "As a chef, I have a passion for sharing my food with the world, and through this partnership I've been able to reach further than ever before. It was only fitting to bring the burger home to Los Angeles, and offer it to our guests here at Electric Owl."
