Hungry Hippo: your favorite Burger and Chicken in one place

Are you a certified Hippoholic? The hungry hippo is a burger and chicken restaurant that recently boomed in the South particularly in SM City Dasmarinas. It offers burger ala carte, rice meals or meal upgrades that include drinks and side dishes in a single order.


I visited here in two different instances. Once you enter, you'll eventually think of the restos at a 90's Diner with a few my memories with my favorite Facebook game, restaurant city. It can comfortably accommodate about 20-30 people in their store.

Upon ordering, they served me water and handed me a magazine since the serving time is about 15-20 mins. The condiments were already placed in each table so you don't have to ask for it if you want to customize your burger.


I have to say that their food is good. The quality is there in terms of food of the taste but I think the serving size is too small compared to other chains that we ate at. I checked on their ala carte and it says that the junior-sized burger is at around 140 and the meal at around 200. Meal says it comes with drinks and a side dish already so I asked the staff if the "M" in their menu is a meal and she said yes.

To my surprise, I was charged 250+ + for my order so it means that I paid 250 for this junior sized burger and 2 small pieces of chicken wings. I was charged twice for the upgrade since it costs 49 pesos I guess?

For instance, I could already get a huge one for that price in the Burger Project where I customized my own choice of ingredients for my burger.

Well, I just expected that the burger would be at least the size of Burger King's Junior but it's a little bit smaller than that. For the ingredients, it has pieces of veggies, a cheese slice and some bacons.

Here are their meal upgrade options.

In another instance, my friend and I visited this resto and we ordered 6pcs of chicken wings and I added fries. The chicken wings were good, it's parmesan and already okay with the price. I also love the idea that I can easily customize my sauce and they have mustard too!!! I'll probably comeback for their chicken and would love to try their rice meals!

Ella's Recommendation
1. You'll surely love their chicken that's something for sure.
2. For their burgers, I think it's best that you order the regular sized ones than the junior if you have the budget since it's quite costly.
