Berlin summer is a shit this year, but who cares, really – we used the little sun and warmth the current season gave us, turned up the heat on the grills, added some smoke, and created the hottest party of the weekend with the Smokey Soul Special Burgers & Hip Hop Block Party! We had six contenders in the running to prepare the most delicious bun fillings for the crowd to enjoy. In between, you guys danced your feat off in the OutBox Me dance battle, only to return to the very important task of voting for the bestest bun-creation. As many burger-evangelist already noted, we were very, very open this time when it came to what can be called a burger, and decided to go all out for smokiness. That’s why this list will probably seem quite un-burger to some. Don’t worry though, the winner is (almost) a real burger – read on to find out who took the crown this time!

Oh my god, this was everything!! You all showed up to get that heat going: steaming hot grills, boiling dance-floors, extra spicy sauces, and belly-warming buns. Celebrating, partying, and feasting despite winter is what we did at last Saturday’s Burgers & Hip Hop winter edition. All with the goal to find the most scrumptious winter burger among the competitors. We collected almost 600 votes for our talented grill masters, read on to find out who won the crown!
Drum Roll please! First, I want to give a shout out to everyone who showed up to help us and the team of Burgers & Hip Hop celebrate the third birthday. The day was cold, but inside Prince Charles we hung out and dined on our picnic tables like it was summer. Huge thanks to the Tatas’ Muffle stand (recall: mix between muffin and waffle) who made the whole room smell sweet and buttery. The white Glühwein too, with a slice of apple and orange (optional: extra shot of bourbon but #youdoyou), kept our hands warm as we waited in line for this year’s burgers. Speaking of which, BURGERS…
Yet again you guys have proved to be the best of fans. Not the mist, the cold, not even the dreary gray clouds kept you from us at Burgers & Hiphop at Prince Charles this Saturday. At least the smell of bacon cut through iffy weather, am I right? The salt, the maple, the ever so slightly charred aroma kept even the lightest of eaters coming back for seconds (or thirds). Big thanks to our incredible vendors this round. They all toughened it out and came up with patties layered with condiments to i-m-p-r-e-s-s: machego crisps, wurst, homemade bbq, sautéed vegetables (separate burgers). Not surprisingly, competition this year was tough and well fought out. The night closed with a well fed crowd dancing to the tunes of Beyoncé and Biggie Smalls: the mist, it turns out, is great for cooling off.
You guys are the best, seriously. Despite a major downpour, you stayed with us on Saturday, ignoring the rain and storm and just kept on munching the OG creations at our beloved Burgers & Hip Hop. It was the best block party of the summer, thanks to you and our major burger artists! And how amazing was the live set of The Swag and all our open mic performers? It was one for the books, for sure. Not even talking about the voting for Berlin’s Best Burger! Which was incredible in itself, with over 650 votes coming in! And while, by now, it’s almost easy to predict which kind of burger wins Berliner’s hearts by storm, the result is still one to celebrate, majorly!
