Feasting at the Fat Hippo Underground

I've already professed my love for a good burger, but as I've previously mentioned my favourite burger resides in London! Far to far to feed my addiction. In my search for something a little closer I ventured to Newcastle's Fat Hippo Underground.

Hidden in what looks like a cellar, accessible via a door on Shakespeare Street in the centre of town, is the trendy burger restaurant. When we arrived, on a Saturday afternoon, I expected it to be busy but it was fairy quiet and we got a table straight away. After browsing the menu I knew that I'd be going for something similar to a cheeseburger, which in the Fat Hippo was the American. It came with triple fried handcuts whilst Mum ordered the Italian Job, breaded chicken with mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes and pesto mayo in a massive panini bun which came with normal fries. We also got a portion of onion rings.

As we were in Newcastle for S Club 7 on the night we decided to indulge in a naughty slush. I picked the Berry Smash which had vodka, passoa and grenadine and Mum picked Last of the Summer Slush which included gin, limoncello and elderflower. Both were blitzed with ice to create a slush consistency! So nice and refreshing.

When the food came we were amazed by how much we got. There was so much, we knew we'd never be able to finish the lot, especially including the onion rings! My burger was delicious! So juicy and flavoursome. All the sauces and toppings made it so tasty. The chips were amazing as well coupled with Fat Hippo's signature burger sauce. Mum enjoyed her chicken burger but I think it was all a bit too much considering we had the onion rings to eat as well!

Overall the food and the drinks were great and the restaurant decor was brilliant. When I am back in Newcastle I'd definitely visit again!
