Hai Di Lao (海底捞火锅), Shanghai, China

If you have tried Haidilao Steamboat in Singapore, then you must also try the one in China. Originated from China, there are more than 10 outlets in Shanghai.

We went there at off-peak period, just after lunch time. At  Haidilao (海底捞火锅), the service and the dining experience were very good. They were very consistent with their branding. The experience was identical to the ones I had in Singapore.

We ordered quite a number of items, including beef, mutton, sweet potato noodles, which were similar to the ones we ordered in Singapore. The broths, chicken and spicy mala, were delicious. The food were freshly prepared.

The only thing I must say is that the total damages were the same as in Singapore. You will not find it cheaper if you dine in Shanghai. We spent RMB320 in total. If you ask me, I think that it is worth it.
