Rebel Room (Wedding)
Rebel Room moved into the small kiosk on Seestraße, a listed building, in 2013. Prepare for a queue, even though this is a kebab-dominated area. The burgers are worth it, from the home-baked organic sesame buns to the homemade sauces. Our favourite? The Rebel Burger (7 Euros). The grilled steer patty is accompanied by cheddar cheese, roast onions, Rebel sauce and fresh pepper. And here is the good news for those unwilling to queue: The Rebels do deliver to your doorstep.

Piri’s Chicken Burgers (Kreuzberg)
Piri’s does offer beef and tofu burgers, but otherwise it’s all about poultry really. But no matter whether you opt for a chicken burger with aioli, iceberg lettuce, Piri sauce and cheese (5 Euros) or a cheeseburger with beef, braised red onions and gherkin (6,50 Euros) – the main question is: how hot shall it be? Sauces are either „mild“, „hot“ or „traumatic“. If you aren’t sure what suits you best, simply ask the waiter who is happy to elucidate the different degrees of hot-ness. Be aware that you can’t book tables in Piri’s, but they do offer doorstep delivery.

Tommi’s Burger Joint (Mitte)
Tommi started his Burger Joint chain in Iceland, where the smart businessman and burger aficionado hails from. Soon it was so successful that he opened more joints in London, Copenhagen and Berlin. It is no wonder his concept catches on in Invalidenstraße, too: At Tommi’s you can assemble your burger yourself. And Berliners value their individuality! But never mind if you don’t like to be creative when ordering a burger: you can simply choose a classic cheeseburger (6,75 Euros) or the Veggie Burger (6,25 Euros) as well.

Times when this joint at Schlesisches Tor was only known to insiders are long gone. Kreuzbergers have trusted in the quality and taste of the food for years. Besides a classic hamburger you can also choose the BBQ burger or chili cheese fries. Also highly recommended: the „Meistaburger“ with ample meat, fried onions, mustard, bacon and BBQ sauce. Vegetarians opt for the tofu burger or homemade chips with warm cheese or mango curry sauce.

BBI – BerlinBurger International (Neukölln)
„Follow your stomach rumbles, listen to the voice from the loudspeaker and get ready to send your palate on a special trip.“ Burger aficionados follow this invitation to Pannierstraße in droves. Simply sinking your teeth into the food is not an option though. Ingredients are piled up high on the bun. Obviously you can choose between different combinations: there is „El Gordonita“ with 190 grams of beef, guacamole, sweet potato, bacon, cheddar and aioli (8,50 Euros), „Drei-Käse-Hoch“ (literally: three levels of cheese, 6,90 Euros) or the monthly alternating Special Burger, „which is pushing the limits of taste“, as BBI tell us. You can’t really go wrong here. The only downside: sometimes it is hard to get a seat. Good that they are offering doorstep delivery now.

The Bird (Prenzlauer Berg)
A full 250 grams of Black Angus beef, combined with guacamole and salsa (12,50 Euros) or buffalo mozzarella with tomato sauce (14 Euros) – The Bird at Falkplatz is the mother of all burger joints. There is not much chance of getting a table without a reservation and the vibrant place is not exactly ideal for a romantic dinner for two either. Meat lovers will love it though. The premium beef is served with a huge helping of hand-cut chips and home-made sauces. Add a tasty beer from the international drinks menu to the XXL size patty – there is your perfect evening. The second Berlin branch is in Neukölln, even though it is called „The Bird Xberg“ on their website.

Hirsch & Eber (Prenzlauer Berg)
For a long time, the team behind Hirsch & Eber was a common sight at various street food markets in the city. Now they also have their own joint in Kollwitzstraße. As the name suggests they only serve tasty game from the region, for example Flämisch boar. Between the buns you will also find goodies like home-made port onions or candied walnuts with pear and lingonberry sauce (from 6,90 Euros). Yummy!

Furthermore the Czech pub chain offers burgers with a British touch: The Pub Burger comes with sauerkraut, home-made gravy, British cheddar and bacon (13,50 Euros), the British Royal with rich Stilton and gravy (14 Euros). As a pretty special feature, in The Pub every table has its own tap.
