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!
