Burger Toilet the Berlin Way

I’m not sure where I read about this one, but it completely took my attention and I immediately knew I was going to have it, a burger place build in an old toilet, yes an old TOILET! I couldn’t believe it, somebody thought one day, hey you know what would be really cool, convert the abandon public toilet of the corner into a burger shack. Shame on you Minneta Tavern selling high priced Black Label burgers in NYC, same to you Goodman or Hawksmoor offering O’Shea’s cuts in your London fancy places, and Bar Boulud I would not even talk about you, I’m German and I will build it in a toilet! Just like the movie Fields of Dreams “build it and they will come”.

Men why not Frauen?

A burger joint bellow train tracks, I would become familiar with this kind of locations

The Place 

Inside the Toilet sorry the Kitchen 

Green is the colour

Well I actually did, I got to the place Burgermeister, realised it was actually a public toilet, they weren’t kidding around, stand there bellow the U1 train tracks, in the middle of the traffic, I ordered a chilli cheeseburger with fries, and a beer while waiting. The burger was good, quite good to be honest, nothing fancy, straight forward cheeseburger with jalapenos, the fries were quite good as well. To give you an idea if you want to compare it with London fast food standards Lucky Chip or Meatwagon are a little bit better, but they don’t have a fancy location like these Germans, just think it for a second, you will be able to say I got my last burger from a toilet and it tasted good, what a great pub story.

The offer 

Not bad for something that came from a toilet

Toilet reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Postponement”.

Jerry: Hey!
George: I want your honest opinion about something.
Jerry: Have I ever been less than forthright?
George: No, you haven't. Well, maybe you have. What do I know.
Jerry: Yeah, I probably have. Yeah, of course I have. What am I talking about?
George: All right. Okay, tell me what you think about this idea, extend the doors on the toilet stalls at Yankee Stadium all the way to the floor.
Jerry: Extend the doors on the toilet stalls at Yankee Stadium to the floor, door comes down, hides your feet. Yes. I like it. I like it a lot.
George: It's good, right?
Jerry: I think it's fantastic. I think it's a fantastic idea.
George: You do?
Jerry: Yes, I do.
George: Well, I told it to Susan: before, and she didn't like it.
Jerry: Hmm.
George: Yeah. Not only that, this is what she said to me, Can we change the subject?
Jerry: See, now that I don't care for.
George: Right. I mean, we're on a subject. Why does it have to be changed?
Jerry: It should resolve of its own volition.
George: That's exactly what I said, except I used the word momentum.
Jerry: Momentum, same thing.
