Dinner at Hippopotamus.. in Paris.

Most of you would be familiar with Hippopotamus' branch at Marina Square. Did you know that it's a branch from a famous chain of restaurants in France? Click here for the french website.

In his previous trips to France, my pal Ants ate at Hippopotamus EVERY time. So he highly recommended that (splurge a little more) and try it!


I can't remember which branch we went to but this one was HUGE. Three storeys!

The bar counter

I ALWAYS look at the dessert page and this caught my eye. With a melting heart?!?!? I was super tempted to try this but Creme Brulee was also screaming to me.

Beef Carpaccio. Basically it's like beef sashimi. Only with delicious seasoning. This was finished in an instant. Tender and fresh. Yum. Was impressed with the first dish.

I ordered medium rare steak but I can't remember which part. Sorry. It was served MEDIUM RARE, just like I ordered! (Unlike many other places). Anyway, BEARNAISE SAUCE IS DELICIOUS with steak!! And their potatoes with cheese was perfect. Not too cheesy, but not bland either.

Similarly to Singapore, you get to pick you two side dishes alongside your main. Ants chose potato gratin and long beans. Their serving is way more generous than Singapore's branch!

PS: NOTE BEARNAISE SAUCE.

D's dish. Why he ordered fish, I seriously do not know. Think it was BBQ sauce on the side!

So I gave in and picked creme brulee. You're in france you GOTTA try their creme brulee right? This was huge! I actually took a longer time than usual to finish this. But it was splendid. Not overly burnt (I could still taste some sugar crystals!), cream was thick and smooth. Aahhh I would gladly eat this again.

After the success of my creme brulee, we ordered the dessert SET. Bite size portions of all their popular desserts!! (Note the chocolate with a melting heart) fantastic way to end the meal.

I will definitely be back the next time I'm in France. Be sure to check it out!!
