The Scene meets The Pit

As the food scene in Berlin is losing their mind over vegan and vegetarian food, we just have a couple of questions. What happened to our innermost desires for tender, juicy, red meat? Where is the meat love? Will we all eat hamsters’ food in the future?

Just as the questions became unbearable, a pitmaster from Texas descended upon the vegan-troubled grounds of Berlin. His trademark: Wagyu brisket. In 18 hot and sweaty hours of hand smoking Adam Ramirez creates a BBQ with a tender delicious taste, largely unknown to the untaught European tongues. The exclusive Wagyu beef stems from the same cow that Kobe beef is made of and is only bred in the USA. Adam took the liberty of buying the whole stock of Wagyu beef available for European buyers in 2015 to turn it into Berlin’s beefiest dreams. Thank you, Adam!

In an unforgettable 7 course experience, we were shown the power of the Wagyu. Slowly building up the tension with vegetarian dishes and smaller meat dishes, the 6th course brought the grand final. Everyone took a deep breath as the heavy odor of smoked meat filled the air. Were were now being served the most spectacular beef experience in Berlin – and this is hardly exaggerated. The richness of taste the smoking process creates is unmatched, the meat is tender, delicious and unlike anything you’ve ever eaten before. Just minutes after Adam served the opulent meal, all the plates were scratched empty – luckily another brisket was conjured out of the kitchen and everyone got their second helping. Our special recommendations go out to the superb combination of the courses and the chosen beverages. The food was amazing, but the combination of both was when the real tongue candy came in!

Unfortunately the whole event was based on a pop up concept, so right now you can only order Adam’s delicacies for caterings. However, Adam wants to find a place of his own in the future. He tells us there’s an old gas station near Hermannplatz with a rustical charme, that has put a spell on him. We definitely hope he gets the place. We can’t wait to have another bite!
