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!
Summer is what you make of it, so we’ll definitely be all in for the upcoming Burgers & Hip Hop party on Saturday, August 5, in your favourite backyard off Moritzplatz. To make things even better we chose a very special theme: it’ll be all about smoked meat! All of those smoking hot burger artists will be putting the finest smoky meats in between two buns for you to enjoy – come join us in the backyard of Prince Charles, when we celebrate Burgers & Hip Hop topped with a serving of Soul with a hot side of a soul train dance battle!
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.
I’m kind a lost for words describing the party we had past Saturday, not only did we celebrate the 2nd anniversary of your favorite party – Burgers & Hip Hop – at Prince Charles with the best burgers artists of the city,burger macarons, two burger pinatas and a stunning new trophy, but received over 900 votes to find Berlin’s Bestest Burger ever. The ultimate battle of all our previous winners turned out to be hot as hell. Find out who won, here!
