Whisk the olive oil, plum vinegar, water, and black pepper together until emulsified. Drizzle it onto the radish-chili pepper mixture and toss to coat. Add 2 tbsp coarsely chopped cilantro leaves, 2 tbsp torn mint leaves, and 1 tsp chopped chives. Set aside.

Toast the brioche buns until golden. Slather umami mayo onto each half, then arrange a lettuce leaf onto each. Arrange a cluster of the radish slaw and then pile crab meat onto the bottom half of each bun. Sandwich the top half onto the bottom, and get ready for a groan-inducing treat.
