Hippopotamus Restaurant Grill

Visit http://www.umakemehungry.com/2014/11/hippopotamus-restaurant-grill.html for detailed review

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.

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.

Ordered a rump steak well done. The steak was medium well instead. One of the side dish potato gratin was delicious but found a hair inside when I was half finished with it! When I told the waitress, she said they put in oven so it's not possible?! Then she took it away and later returned and place a new gratin on the table without a word! Felt so indignant that I asked to speak to the manager. The manager at least had s good attitude and apologized on her behalf. Honestly, I was so appalled by the service and given the mediocre food quality and high price, I will not return again.

Dined here a while back.. Asked for medium well, got raw, bloody steak (it was dripping!).. worse still, server (with a bad attitude) said there's no way to rectify and the steak will be well done if sent back, came back tough and overcooked.. really bad.. Don't even into this grill restaurant that cannot even get the meat right..

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
