Buenos dias amigos!
Last week the bf and I used a voucher I'd received for a three course lunch with matched wine at the Hippopotamus restaurant. We'd had the voucher for almost six months and could never find a time to use it (the bf is ever-so-important(!!) and never takes a work lunch break!!) so last week he managed to find a slot in his diary and we went to lunch. UNFORTUNATELY, that morning I woke up feeling crappy with a cold! Typical.
|Hippopotamus is within the Museum Hotel in Wellington|
|The outside (and inside actually) of the building is fabulous!|
|Look closely and you'll see a hippo in my glass ;)|
|A view of the harbour - and my house on the far right in the distance!|
|I ordered the veggie option - roast carrot risotto with beetroot foam for my main. I loved how pink it was (SUCH a girl, huh!)|
|And my dessert was raspberry panacotta. I'm not much of a dessert person, but I loved the presentation.|
|The bf scoffed his lemon and pine nut tart|
|As an art hotel, there are fabulous exhibits and pieces everywhere - including chairs|
|And motorbikes in the lobby!|
|And this little fella greeting you from the elevator!|
