Favorite Places: Burgermeister

by Sara · 16.08.2011 · Places · 7 comments

There’s some­thing about that U1 sub­way line that makes me very happy to dine beneath it. Or near it. Nearly all of my favor­ite res­taur­ants have a great view and noisy set­ting some­where around it. Yeah, that’s not very high class, but then not many things in Ber­lin are and that’s alright in my book.

Any­way, one of my favor­ite places in Kreuzberg is Bur­ger­meister. It’s a former pub­lic toi­let so noth­ing too fancy about it today either, but the Bur­ger is one of the best in town and I’ve never had Chili Cheese Fries so close to per­fec­tion. Ser­i­ously. It’s always packed, so pre­pare to wait. It’s a nice wait though, where else in Ber­lin will you listen to smooth rap and hip hop beats at 3 AM in the morn­ing and still have an excited crowd to meet and watch (if you wanna answer “pretty much every­where else, too” I’m going to smack you up the head)? It’s become quite the inter­na­tional hot­spot too, being in the middle of the binge drink­ing tour­ism cen­ter, but noth­ing majorly annoy­ing, I promise.

I’m not say­ing this stuff doesn’t have cal­or­ies — because it does — and I’m not say­ing it’s the best bur­ger in the world — because I haven’t yet eaten every bur­ger in the world — but from my point of view, Bur­ger­meister is the per­fect not so fast fast food oppor­tun­ity in Ber­lin. It’s ori­ginal and authen­tic, it tastes beau­ti­ful, deli­cious really, it’s cheap for what it’s worth, the people who work their mech­an­ical robot jobs are always nice and since it’s packed most of the time you get to share your table with ran­dom people from all over the place. Exchange stor­ies! Make it happen!

Also, I just got myself really, really hungry.
