Really Spicy 大龍燚火鍋@ Shanghai

Haidilao 海底撈 @ Somerset 313

Finally they opened another store (apart from their ever-popular Clarke Quay store). Haidilao made its name from excellent service and fresh ingredients. Which other restaurant provided drinks and snacks, manicure, game room for children with nanny, microfibre cloth for spectacles, etc for their diners? And is it any wonder they are going IPO in China?
