Burgers with character
The truth and nothing but the truth
There is a revolution going on in burgerland! A non-violent one of course, but the Gotham Burger franchise is entering the Berlin market at amazing speed, probably thinking it is Batman. Anyway, forget those bad jokes of us: They took over The Bird in Kreuzberg, one of the household names in the city. And in Wedding the former 700 Grad was renovated and renamed into Gotham as well.
Worth a hype?
Well, it certainly is a place with character. Two characters, to be more specific, as the Wedding restaurant is kind of schizophrenic: the right side looks like a cocktail bar with fancy liquor bottles, the other part is more of a western bar. And those two halves don’t exactly fit together, but they’re charming, just as the staff.
The burgers have just as much character as the restaurant and the neighborhood it is located in, deadbang at edgy Leopoldsplatz. The patties should have been medium, but were definitely almost well done. Which is a matter of preference (and #SecretGayGuy likes his meat raw, of course). The bacon unfortunately wasn’t: it was baked just a bit too long and was thus too hard.
The good thing definitely was that the burgers are quite basic, so you can actually taste the meat really well (our hobby, yes). Maybe a bit too dry because of the lack of sauce – some melted cheese had to do the trick. No top-10 material for sure, but solid.
Famous last words?
If you ever want to wake us up in the middle of the night (no, we don’t sleep together – #SecretGayGuy is still denying and refusing), bring us some curly fries from Gotham. Crunchy, each and everyone had a slightly different shape: that’s how you spell DELICIOUS.
