Increasingly it makes no difference which hotpot establishments I go to given the number of posts/ photos dedicated to my ongoing obsession with this bubbling pot of joy. The impeccable service alone, which is a rarity for those familiar with the F&B scene in China, warrants a visit to Sichuanese hotpot chain Haidilao. Food-wise, who can say no to fresh, affordable, delicious ingredients and tasty soup bases ? They’ve seriously outdone themselves. Not that the poor picture quality helps but, see, huge grin on the face of the noodle guy ! Everyone looks genuinely happy working there !

So, anyway, until Haidilao opens in Hong Kong next year or the year after (so I’ve been told), it will probably be fair to say that Haidilao would be the primary reason why I’ll be traipsing over to Shenzhen every so often.

Got a good reason for taking the easy way out


Sorry to say but time and again, coastal China has proved disappointing in terms of heritage sites. Gripe aside, do try to spot the cat in this picture.


Dog meat it is.



My second time in Shenzhen and it’s probably fair to say we weren’t there to shop. We did have a good dinner though well, that’s my fodder for the next post.
