In the corner of Motzstraße, surrounded by fetish stores in Schoneberg you will find the burger of the week; Zsa Zsa Burger. We decided to visit this place since it was one of Felipe’s favorites, it seemed cozy enough for the stormy winter we are having in Berlin, and well, what a fantastic choice.
Zsa Zsa Burger is what I would describe as a grown-up burger place, it is beautifully decorated without overdoing it, the menu is focused on the high-quality ingredients and the service is very very good. Music was nice, and the place is very inviting to stay for a while, chat and have a few drinks.
We arrived there on a Saturday around 6 pm, and we were fortunate to get a seat at the bar since it was full of reserved tables. The bar is spacious enough that we could eat fine, so not a huge problem, but not as comfy as a table, so make a reservation if you want more than a quick bite.
They have a lot of burger options here, they all sound delicious and come with a 200gr patty, and you can choose between whole wheat bread or sourdough. With the help of the staff, I decided the Bronx Burger (€13,10); sourdough bun, Swiss raclette cheese, and sautéed mushrooms.
Damn, this was the hell of a delicious burger, everything was so well seasoned and balanced, the patty is very meaty and savory, the mushrooms were a treat, and the cheese was all the flavor you could expect from a raclette cheese. The burger held so well together since the sourdough bun is firmer than usual and you could taste that they probably toasted it on the grill before putting it all together.
Our friends got the special of the day called Milanese, an Italian inspired one with pesto and deliciousness, the Kentucky burger (€14,90) with Bourbon marinated beef, roasted peppers, and raclette cheese, the Tijuana burger (€13,00), a vegetarian one with black beans, corn, guacamole, red onions, chili, coriander, and salsa. They were all delicious, and we are always happy to see vegan and vegetarian options.
The prices seem quite high but the burgers are significant, and they all come with a side of delicious fries, fresh coleslaw, a nice little salad, so you get your money’s worth. This, my friends, is a 9/10 burger for sure, we were really impressed by the quality of the ingredients, and it only adds up to the grown-up vibe of this place.
If you are into drinks, they have a great variety of originals and classics, got the Deep Purple (€8,5) one, and it was delicious! For the beer lovers, this is not the place you will have too much to chose from, but there are still a few.
We loved our evening here, and by all the returning customers greeting the staff and amount of reserved tables, we know we were not alone in that. Service was fast, and the staff was super nice.
