Known for its fragrant and flavourful soups, Hai Di Lao started off as a humble shop selling “Ma La Tang” (which literally means spicy-numbing soup). But now, the brand ( has over 300 outlets in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan.


The opening of Hai Di Lao also means there’s going to be a long queue and months of advance booking. On the bright side, the shop is known for offering free snacks, drinks, games and manicure services for those who are willing to wait for their table.
