Berlin’s Best Burger: Tropical Edition

Oh what a day and night we had – hot and humid, sweet and spicy, devouring and dancing. Eight burger artists came together for Burgers & Hip Hop in the backyard of Prince Charles to celebrate tropical patties and exotic add-ons like grilled pineapple, coconut slaw, bourbon pickles, mango salsa and fried plantain.
Besides savoring those treats and shaking those bums, we were there to find the new bearer of the much coveted Berlin’s Best Burger trophy. Using a new voting system, where each visitor had a chip to vote for the best while the pre-sale Burger Feast tickets included a double vote, we got more votes than ever and a result that might (or might not) surprise you!

Café in Berlin: ORA

Something new to discover! The area around Oranienplatz just got a beautiful new café: ORA. Located inside an old pharmacy, with most of the original furnishing still there, it’s a beautiful place to have your first meal of the day, spend a lazy afternoon or get the first or last drink of the night.
It’s only been open for a week, but is already a highlight in the area.

The Best Places in Berlin: A Map

Many times I’ve considered the idea of assembling a best-of list comprising my absolute favorite Berlin spots. Yet instead of writing up a listicle, we once again left the safe paths of the web to move into the thrilling field of print. It took some paper wrangling and some heightened discussion over the merits of one location over another, but now that it’s finished I am very proud to say: the map is here!
