Oberbaumstr. 8, 10997 Berlin, Germany, Kreuzberg
Burgermeister, quite simply the most talked about burger establishment in Berlin, maybe for its spectacular burgers but more over for its quirky venue, an old disused public toilet situated underneath the metro tracks of U1.
Now it’s exactly as it sounds, an 8 meter by 3 meter metal shack tucked away underneath the noisy U1 metro tracks, curb side to the busy Kreuzberg traffic intersection. All of the above just adds to the authenticity of the experience.
With 5-6 burgers to choose from, there isn’t lack of choice, especially with the option to add ingredients at your own will for a small fee. I chose the Bar – B – Q burger with cheese –
((Beef patty, bacon, cheese, BBQ sauce and various farm-to-burger salad))
Considering the setting, the burger tasted very organic. Other than the mass of fat that excreted from the patty, it all seemed proper and thought through. Each individual ingredient carried its own flavour, and you could taste that. Normally with burgers, individual ingredients lose their flavour amongst the rest, normally if it’s a weak choice of ingredients, but this was different. These ingredients are a just a handful that I’ve had 100x on burgers but this was the most uniquely ordinary burger I’ve ever eaten.
For the price and experience you get, it’s a MUST that you eat here if you are visiting Berlin. Burger Rating 9.5 out of 10.
I’d like to thank my very good friend Alex Jones (spottedradiator) for insisting that I visit Burgermeister upon my arrival in Berlin. No regrets.
