The Fat Hippo - Newcastle Underground | Review

Credit: Sam Terry
As Freshly Pressed Beauty is labelled as a beauty & lifestyle blog I really want to introduce some more lifestyle content onto my blog now I have the time. I love food, and I'm sure you do to, right? So today I will be reviewing Newcastle's The Fat Hippo. I went to the Underground branch for the second time with Michael and I'm just obsessed!

The Fat Hippo serve American food: beef burgers, chicken burgers, ribs, potato skins. They have a happy hour on 5-6 Monday-Friday which entitles you to one course for £7.50 two courses for £10 and three courses for £12 (on selected meals) which is amazing given the quality of the food.

Berry Smash Cocktail
Dirty Skins
I opted for two courses. To start I went with the Dirty Skins which is: "Double fried potato skins, topped with bacon and Fat Hippo sauce." The Dirty Skins were divine, the bacon really complimented the potato skins and the Fat Hippo Sauce added a lot of flavour to the skins and bacon. Yum!

Texas Burger
For the main I went for a Texas burger which is: "Double patty, topped with streaky bacon, cheese, onion rings and bbq sauce". Although I love bbq sauce I'm not a fan of it on beef so I asked for mayo instead which was no problem. The burger comes beautifully present with home-cooked season fries houses in a little red pot - which is a cute touch. The burger has an amazing smoky taste and the brioche bun adds to the taste. It's definitely the best burger I have ever had!

Michael didn't finish his burger so he asked for it to be wrapped up, one of the waitresses accidentally chucked his half burger away so the waitress asked the chef to make Michael a fresh one. So we got to take a whole chicken burger and chips away with us which was amazing. The customer service is brilliant!

The only fault I have with the Underground branch is that it does get really hot down there on a hot summers day. If you're next to the air con then you will be fine. The food on the other hand, no complaints as it was delicious.

If you're ever in Newcastle City Centre and fancy a bite to eat then definitely stop by The Fat Hippo.
