HMMMMM Juicy burgers at The Fat Hippo Underground Newcastle

Burgers of The Fat Hippo in Newcastle are a concept in the city. Every burger lover can’t miss out on this address while on a weekend trip overseas. The Fat Hippo has got several locations and the newest hotspot is The Fat Hippo Underground. When your standing in front of the door outside you wouldn’t suspect it to be a nice spot. But as soon as you walk down the stairs ‘underground’ you understand why we are fan.

It’s kind of a hidden restaurant with arches, brick walls, an open kitchen and a neon logo. Pretty hipster! It reminds me of a dive bar in the United States. At The Fat Hippo Underground you eat the  best burgers. Flame grilled and so juicy. You definitely want to try this on a weekend trip in Newcastle!
