The truth and nothing but the truth
Not a lot of good things come from Prenzlauer Berg aka Pregnancy Hill: Rich people from Schwaben (where they build Mercedes and Porsche cars), hysterical mothers hunting for left-turning bio latte macchiatos AND their vegan kids have made the district into a nightmare of conformism, and that doesn’t even yet include the tourists.
But the burgers are something different. The pulled pork of Hirsch & Eber and the exquisite creations of Grindhouse belong to the best the city has to offer. And in a dark corner of the area (we LOVE dark corners obviously) we discovered Blackbeards, a 2015 addition to the scene. It calls itself a ‘modern interpretation of a BBQ restaurant’. Cut the marketing crap: they have a ‘smoking oven’ to yarn the meat over several hours. Long fun, we like that as well.
Enough with the bad sex jokes, dude. How was the fucking burger?
Well we don’t like bad sex as well. Anyway, the burger just tasted effortless. As if it just without a hesitation slided down the… throat. The pulled pork was darker and smokier than in other places, the bacon so crispy it cracked perfectly when our jaws started doing their work. The Week Special (pumpkin burger) was slightly less kick-ass, but still very solid. And goddamn, those buns that were toasted just slightly but simply almost perfect.
Famous last words?
We want farmers! Well, at least their fries, or actually wedges. Goddamn, after the disappointment of the wedges at the Burgerie we could deffo use some proper carbs in our mouth again, and Blackbeards just delivered!
