Our Parenting World team would like to thank the organisers and Hippopotamus Restaurant Grill for having us. We thoroughly enjoyed trying out the new range of Hippopotamus’s in-house cocktails, it is not so over-powering, most of the cocktails have a small amount of sweetness and fruity tastes making the drinks smooth and easy to go along well with the food that we have tried. The cocktails are gentle, not too dominant and yet have enough punch to awaken our senses!
In addition, these range of cocktails are specially concocted to complement the restaurant’s prime steak offerings. Best of all, these cocktails are priced at an affordable $14,90 ++ each for a restaurant located right in the heart of the Central Business District at Marina Square. It is certainly a good place for us to hang out with our colleagues and friends during lunch and or after work to have a good meal and enjoy its refreshing cocktails.
