Hippopotamus Restaurant Grill [Closed]

Having tried Hippopotamus during my trip to Paris years back, I decided to revisit the Hippo themed restaurant in Singapore. They are owned by a France based company and has strong reputation in Paris region, known for their wide range of Beef Steak Cuts.

Menu
 The ambience is contemporary and relaxing, added with a friendly services from their staff, suitable for gatherings and even a favourite meeting place for meals.

Complimentary starters like bread and packaged butter were served while we waited for the mains to be ready.

We started with the French Onion Soup served in the typical white lionhead bowl loaded with yellow onions and smothered with melted cheese and soaked bread. Simply love the taste of the soup though it is not the best I had ever tried.

French Onion Soup - $7.90
I decided to be adventurous for the night and ordered something different to experience the fine gourmet, Hippo Blue Cheese Burger. The burger were topped with crumbled blue cheese with glazed onions underneath. It was also complemented with Roquefort sauce. Two chosen sides added to the main were baked potatoes with bacon bits and sauteed mushrooms.

Sides - Sauteed Mushrooms

 Under the classic cuts, we have chosen the Rump Steak from New Zealand, an extremely flavourful cut which has a leaner yet firmer texture. We were very pleased with the medium well doness paired with brown mushroom sauce, added with sides like potato gratin and steamed vegetables.

 Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream over the moist sliced of French toast with Nutella.

 A perfect pleasing dessert for sweet tooth. Creme Brule is their signature creation with a thin layer of caramelised brown sugar and underneaths lies a smooth creamy texture with a good consistency of butter rich flavour and hints of vanilla.

Creme Brule - $7.90
 Overall experience was above average with attentive service and constant refills of our plain water. However a little wait is required for the dishes to be served up to the table.
