A bit like McDonalds!?
The truth and nothing but the truth
Us cool people obviously don’t want to be seen in the western parts if it is not absolutely necessary. So as long as Wind Burger was in the Windscheidstrasse in posh Charlottenburg, we obviously refused to check it out. But now they opened a second branch, with a direct view of Görlitzer Bahnhof station, which increases the street credibility and the hipster rating by at least three organic latte macchiato stars.
But does it live up to the hype?
Well, we already grew sceptical when we saw ‘TK Pommes’ as an option on the menu. TK meaning that it comes directly from of the freezer. Sympathetic, a budget option, but it also made us fear the burgers would come from the same freezer, different door.
That is not the case, rest assured, but that’s also where the good news stops. We are obviously two spoilt queer bitches, but our first thought with our first bite was ‘McDonalds’. Which is NOT a compliment. Responsible for that are not only the two thin patties which look similar to the ones at the Big M, but also the flat and watery taste of the ensemble.
And then the fries. Not the deeply frozen ones, no worries. They tasted more or less okay, but were so fatty it would impress a ‘Supersize Me’ American tourist. The idea looks good on the menu: the execution is mediocre at best. To their credit, the garlic butter option can be tasted, but there are some fatty things in life we just don’t like to swallow.
Famous last words?
You think we are getting a little harsh? Well, we cannot be bribed and we are spoilt bitches to the max, so we just expect our meat to be yummie in our mouth. That’s all, folks! 🙂
