Hai Di Lao 海底捞

I think there is no need for me to introduce this place as it is already very famous and I believe many people have already have a taste of it. And if you have not, please call them to make an advance reservation at least 1 to 2 weeks earlier if you plan to have it on a weekend.

This is a place not only for the delicious steamboat soup base but also for the almost flawless service. They provide you with free snacks and drinks outside the restaurant if you have to queue up. They also set up little tables and chairs for you to sit. And if your wait is a little too long, they also have some card games to keep you occupied. For the ladies, you can even have free manicure done while waiting for your table to be ready. There is also a kids play area where parents can leave their children to keep themselves occupied.

So there will be one staff that will attend to about 4-5 tables at the same time and they will make you feel really comfortable and provide you almost everything you will need to prepare yourself for the steamboat. From a simple rubber band for girls to tie up their hair to a napkin to prevent stains on your close to ziplog specially meant for your handphones so they don't get dirty. I was here with my family few months ago and they even offered a baby cot for my baby nephew to sleep in!!! I was totally amazed!

So their menu is an Ipad. You just have to select what you want on the Ipad, submit  your orders and they will be brought to you very shortly.

The soup base that I have chose was Ma La and Chicken. I have been here 3 times and each time I just have the same soup base. You won't regret these choices!

There is a bar nearby where you can start making and mixing your own sauce according to your liking.

Mine was simply mushroom sauce mixed with oyster sauce and sesame oil.

Cuttlefish Paste

Free tau huay for dessert. You can take as many as you want. And they just taste like lao ban dou hua!!!

So the staff started to cook the fish paste for us.

That's the price for 2 person. It all depends on what you order of course. And the photos shown are not all that we have ordered. There were more. This is definitely the best steamboat I have ever tried!
