It seems 2022 is the year for feasting on some mighty fine food as there are a number of new openings set to arrive in Glasgow, including a new addition coming to St Vincent Street which we can’t wait to visit. Fat Hippo, a group of independent burger restaurants based in the North of England, is heading to Scotland and bringing their insane and drool-worthy burgers to Glasgow.
Announcing the news on social media, Fat Hippo’s post said: “🔥 BREAKING BURGER NEWS, HELLO 𝗚𝗟𝗔𝗦𝗚𝗢𝗪 🔥Yep, you heard it here first. Fat Hippo #Glasgow is COMING 👀 We’re buzzing to announce your favourite independent burger joint is opening a 𝗕𝗥𝗔𝗡𝗗 𝗡𝗘𝗪 𝗥𝗘𝗦𝗧𝗔𝗨𝗥𝗔𝗡𝗧 on St. Vincent Street!”
Expect their signature beef and boneless buttermilk chicken patties, that come with free fries (or you can upgrade them), as well as a range of vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options to choose from. Fat Hippo are set to open their St Vincent Street branch in either spring or summer this year and they’re also bringing their renowned beef burger PB and Double J, which features two beef patties, American cheese, chunky peanut butter, bacon jam and smoked chilli jello, to the Glasgow restaurant’s menu. And if you’re feeling ultra hungry, they even serve a four-patty beef burger!
Fat Hippo is famed for its quality ingredients and quirky flavours, which also appear in their tasty starters such as fried crinkle cut pickles, beer battered cheese balls, trash browns (deep-fried tater tots, liquid cheese and cajun onion strings) and wachos (waffle fries with classic nacho toppings). You’ll also find glorious carbs like hash browns, waffle fries and onion rings alongside their patties to create the ultimate burger experience.
The group will also be launching on Deliveroo in Glasgow to allow customers to enjoy Fat Hippo’s signature burgers in the comfort of their own home. Fat Hippo currently has six restaurants and four resident kitchens located in Manchester, Sheffield, Newcastle, Liverpool, Durham, Leeds and Nottingham, as well as exciting plans to continue growing, with further sites being established across the UK such as Birmingham, Cardiff and Edinburgh. Their Fat Hippo Fleet travels all over the UK, bringing their renowned burgers to thousands of national events.
