Fat Hippo Sheffield Kommune Review - Burgers to die for

Fat Hippo Sheffield - So good we have two!

Fat Hippo is one of those eateries that have become legendary in their own city and I was over the moon when Fat Hippo Sheffield was announced as one of the occupants of I've Kommune. I'd been awaiting the opening in Sheffield since it was very first announced way back in 2018, I watched it being transformed and listened to all the announcements of the independent traders who'd be occupying the space. When Fat Hippo announced that they'd be bringing their delicious burgers, food and fat hippo sauce to Kommune Sheffield I was completely sold! I knew it would be my first stop and I have to say it did not disappoint

I'm very lucky that the Fat Hippo Sheffield journey is doing so well they've opened a second location in Lane7

The Review

Fat Hippo have been setting the North East alight with the kind of gluttonous burgers that leave your hands messy and a little food baby. They're indulgent but born out of making great burgers well with gourmet toppings. Strange but delicious combinations and yummy sides to complete your meal. I spent a fair while perusing the menu before I decided on their namesake the Fat Hippo Burger

The Fat Hippo Burger is a toasted demi brioche topped with 2 beef patties topped with streaky bacon, chorizo, cheese and a huge onion ring, smothered in their legendary Fat Hippo Sauce. I upgraded my fries to the dirty waffles which again contain the Fat Hippo Sauce and this time we have crispy bacon bits added to the equation. I took an order tile and went and found a seat in Kommune. It's a lovely open space where you can order from any of the eateries and eat together so perfect for those of us with fussier friends or those who can't decide what to eat.

Once my tile buzzed I went back and picked up my order. This could be tricky if you were on your own to secure your seat and it remain empty for picking up your order but they're working on these things. I was presented with the burger of my dreams, it did not disappoint at all and looked mouthwatering. The first bite confirmed my suspicions that this was not an ordinary burger, it was the give me more right now kind where you can't say words the 'mmmms' keep coming. The patties were melt in your mouth, the cheese gooey and delicious and the streaky bacon deliciously crisp. The waffle fries were golden and tasty and I can't explain how amazing it all was. Me and Connor spoke until we both finished

Not only do they offer delicious beef burgers, but they also offer chicken, vegetarian options, vegan options and ever changing specials. They even have milkshakes which are totally worth ordering Fat Hippo milkshakes are renowned for being delicious. It was pure gluttony and your waist line won't thank you but my god your taste buds will - I'd liken it to an independent version of Five Guys and they definitely know how to pimp a burger up better. I enjoyed the food and the vibe of Kommune was friendly and relaxed. I think it's the perfect space for Sheffielders to embrace these delicious bangin burgers.
