White Trash Fast Food

Ger­man. This mem­o­rable eatery re­lo­cated in spring 2014 from its orig­i­nal Pren­zlauer Berg lo­ca­tion, but re­tains its trade­mark campy, rockand-roll feel in the new venue. The Amer­i­can­fo­cused menu goes be­yond fast food – the burg­ers are a par­tic­u­lar draw. Be­sides food, White Trash has an on­site tat­too parlor and con­cert area host­ing shows in ev­ery­thing from rock­a­billy to garage rock to swing and soul. €.
