We came here on a Sunday evening at 5pm and it was really busy even at that time. All tables were taken (we'd booked in advance) and there was a table turnaround time of two hours.
We started with a round of dark köstritzer schwarzbiers beers (@ €3.50 per half litre) and an entertaining read of the menu, which is short and specialised: the food is serious and the tone lighthearted, eg.
"At least try eating the damn burger with your hands. All you uptight people with forks and knives are driving us crazy. And for God’s sake don’t order your meat well done"
It’s all about the meat – a variety of burgers and steaks (you choose the weight and how you’d like it cooked) with the best beef being imported from the States. Because ‘bigger steaks are better’, the advice is not to order a thin, little steak each but to share a bigger – juicier and tastier – steak with others. Our waitress was super helpful and guided us on portion sizes.
For starters the three of us shared sticky chicken wings – six pieces @ €4, and a da woiks burger, medium rare with Cheddar cheese @ €13. For main course we shared two steaks, both cooked medium rare: a 300g fillet steak @ €54 (€18 per 100g) and a 500g New York strip @ €62.50 (€12.50 per 100g). The meat was amazing, so tender and perfectly cooked - nice and burnt on the outside but still pink in the middle. And the chips must have been at least twice-cooked, they were sheer perfection. I can't rate this place highly enough. The food was excellent and so too was the service (really helpful, chatty waitress).
I can't wait to return to Berlin to come back here.
