That was hot shit, last Saturday, right? And I’m not even speaking about that spicy kimchi or wasabi mayonaise, but the weather! The sun burned down on us and the grills, making that patties even crispier. We’ve chosen a theme to remember: the most popular burger variety at our beloved Burgers & Hip Hop since we started: everything Asian! We invited Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese, Indian and Filipino food joints to serve us their creations and you came, ate and voted till very late – when temperatures got a ‘lil more burger friendly. The heated up voting came to a close at night, with one clear winner…read on!

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.
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!
Aww, what a day and night. Burgers & Hip Hop’s spicy edition was so hot, everybody was happy about the heavy rain cooling us down. Which didn’t end the grilling, of course! The burger artists brought so much extra hot chili, piri piri, jalapenos and hot sauce and you all dwelled in the pain.. didn’t you?
However, you ate burgers all night long to find out who’s making the hottest one in town, so read on to find out the result…
What a feast it was. And not only for the 80 Burger Feast ticket holders with early entry and the chance to eat all the burgers at last Saturday’s Burgers & Hip Hop at Prince Charles. Over 500 votes for the Berlin’s Best Burger competition were collected during the afternoon, evening and night for creations filled with bacon jam, nori leafs, or kimchi patty goodness, with seven vendors from all over town serving you burger bliss garnished with massive beats. And not only to meat-lovers, all of them created a vegetarian version, some even vegan.
But who made the best burger, you ask? Who wooed the crowds? Was it Geist im Glas’ experimental approach serving burgers with a shot of whisky, or Papi Crunch’s daring addition of black pudding? Here are the results:
