Hai Di Lao 海底捞 - Chinese Hotpot Restaurant Opening At Bedok Mall

Hai Di Lao Singapore with branches at Clarke Quay, [email protected], Vivocity and IMM, will be opening its 5th branch at Bedok Mall.

The Chinese hotpot restaurant in known for its peppery mala soup base, 4 soups-in-one pot, late night operating hours, and super good service.

As a customer-oriented company, the Chinese spicy soup chain offers complimentary snacks and drinks, free massages (at certain restaurants) and manicures to awaiting customers.

While we wait in anticipation for the opening at Bedok Mall, I thought it would be interesting to share some fun-facts about Hai Di Lao (HDL).

10 interesting facts about Hai Di Lao:

1. Sichuan HaiDiLao Catering Co. Ltd was founded in 1994.

2. Hai Di Lao has opened more than 170 restaurants in China, in cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an, Zhengzhou, Tianjin, Nanjing, Hangzhou, and Shenzhen.

3. You can also find Hai Di Lao in Taiwan, USA, South Korea and Japan.

  1. Hi hi, I was also very excited when I saw that Hai Di Lao was going to open an outlet at Bedok Mall. But I noticed the logo and name is slightly different – although the Chinese characters are the same, the English name is “HI Di Lao” with a handprint as a logo. Any idea if this is related to the authentic Hai Di Lao?
