Fri-Date Chronicles (April 26): Hippopotamus, Charles de Gaulle Airport

It was our last night in Paris. My colleague and I wanted to go to the city but it started to rain and temperature dropped by 10 degrees.. So we opted to just have a “good” meal around the airport.

We chanced upon Hippopotamus in terminal 2B of CDG, where they served burgers, steaks and BBQ. They had a set menu called the Hippo Trio. This included a choice of drinks, starters, an entree and dessert.

We both had:
Drinks: I chose good old soda. Pepsi Max

Starters: fried Vietnamese spring rolls. It had a different French name.. But sorry, I forgot to take it down. I liked it. The sauce that came with it was nice and spicy.

Entree: Hippo steak (180 grams) served with fries. We asked for a medium steak, but some parts were well-done. It could’ve been better, but I really didn’t mind.

Dessert: 2 scoops of Ben and Jerry’s. I chose cookie dough and chocolate brownie. YUM! Forget the 5 degree temperature outside, it’s Ben and Jerry’s hahaha

We were also served complimentary bread, which was too tough for my taste. And no butter came with it

The food wasn’t a mind-blowing experience, but it beat having to eat in McDonalds again. What made it great though was the stories shared throughout the meal. I wouldn’t ask for more. It was definitely a superb last supper in Paris.
