Before talking about the results of the voting for Berlin’s Best Burger April 2016, let me tell you one of my favorite things about our beloved Burgers & Hip Hop party – the fact that you can arrive at, say, 5pm, fill your belly with food, top it with a delicious sweet treat, and then get into the crowd that’s already dancing and shaking around 8pm! I mean, where else in Berlin can one dance before 1am?! Just one more point in the long list of reasons why this is the best food party in Berlin.
Okay, so now to the much awaited new poll to find the best patty-bun-combo in the city – we had brand new contenders and old favorites battle it out on the grills, we’ve seen unusual creations using waffles instead of classic buns, adding potato Röstis with melted cheese; as well as classic grilled meat hugged by brioche, and both won the hearts of you eaters. We collected about 600 votes, and here are the results of the vote for Berlin’s Best Burger! As usual, only the top 3 are ranked, but I will introduce all creations first:Coming all the way from Moabit down South to Kreuzberg, Pignut BBQ brought pure burger art with their Southern Belle featuring a big beef patty, pimento cheese, home smoked bacon and cowboy candy (aka chili).
Following an entirely different style, Chicha served the Tupac Burger – with not only a beef patty with cheese and fried egg, but also plantains, spicy mayo and a red onion cilantro salad.
Even more out of the box was Bukfylla, the Sweden inspired crew went for whole-grain waffles with baked-in drippin’ swedish soft cheese instead of an ordinary bun, topping it with a beef patty, caramelized cherry tomatoes, zucchinis and onions, lamb’s lettuce with cinnamon-balsamico-dressing and a sauce of your choice. Please tell me, who doesn’t love waffles!?
Some went even further: Cheesus brought us Alicia Cheese: a bun hugging not only a juicy beef patty, whisky glazed onions and crispy bacon, but also a Rösti and deliciously melted Raclette cheese, and easily created the longest line of the whole evening with people patiently waiting for their blessing. All hail Cheesus!
And now for the top three ranks!
Bunsmobile is definitely a crowd-pleaser – they won many hearts with their minimal creation called Lil Buns, featuring medium rare free range beef, sauce bearnaise and cheddar cheese. In numbers that is 101 votes and the third place!
Some might say Juicy Lucy went a bit crazy by putting marinated pumpkin with cranberries plus pumpkin salad atop a patty made of Brandenburg beef, but people loved this creation called Rihanna’s Pumpkin Burger and gifted them 135 votes which made them runner-up!
Winner: You might have not heard this name before, but you should put Bone Berlin on your list of food entrepreneurs to watch: Stefan Endres of former Mr Susan fame showed all of us what it means to make the most delicious burger – his Massive 101 featured a beef-bacon patty, dripping ghetto cheese, fresh apple-cucumber slaw, maple sauce n’ habanero in a Sironi bun and scored the crew a bombing 161 total votes!
