海底捞火锅 Haidilao Hotpot – Shenzhen

I have heard a lot about this HotPot restaurant.  It is a chain throughout China and people say good and bad things.

The bad – the queue is too long, and it may not be worth it to wait, especially during peak hours

The good – almost everything else.  They are open 24 hours.  While you wait in queue, you get entertained with games and other things.  It’s fun to queue here!

So, I decided to try it for an early lunch with some colleagues.

What is our choice of soup?  We couldn’t decide so we went with a savory and a spicy!

IMG_4227It is pretty standard hot pot.  I think the attraction are the games while waiting in queue.  I think it’s a little expensive for what it is, though there is a large variety of things to order.

I think I’ll have to give it another shot in order to judge better.
