Independent Burger Chain To Open First London Restaurant

Fat Hippo, the independent UK restaurant group, are bringing the best burgers and loaded fries to their first London location later this year.

The company, who specialise in ‘roll up your sleeves and get it all over your face food’, are opening their brand new restaurant on Great Eastern Street in Shoreditch.

This will be Fat Hippo’s fourteenth UK location and the company has major expansion plans. Additional restaurants opening this year include Cardiff, Glasgow and Birmingham, with several other sites also in negotiations.

Fat Hippo Shoreditch will offer their signature beef and boneless buttermilk chicken burgers. A wide range of vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options are also available, as well as a great value kids’ menu.

Michael Phillips, the company’s Managing Director, who founded Fat Hippo in the North East in 2010 said: “There’s a great burger scene here and we’re thrilled to now be part of it. Our London debut has been a long time coming and we’re delighted that our flagship site in the city will be based on the iconic Great Eastern Street.”

The family friendly burger joint is famed for its quality ingredients and quirky flavours, burgers like their PB+J (a double beef burger topped with peanut butter and bacon jam) and, of course, the classics.

The group also work exclusively with Deliveroo and will be launching on the platform in the capital to allow customers to enjoy Fat Hippo’s signature burgers in the comfort of their own home.

Michael Johnson, the company’s Operations Director, said: “Bringing the Fat Hippo to the London food scene has always been a goal of ours and we’re excited to make this a reality with the opening of Fat Hippo Shoreditch.”
