Yes, yes, a million times yes!
Popular hot pot franchise Hai Di Lao (海底捞) is finally coming to our shores! According to Makan Main Tengok’s Facebook page, the food chain’s first Malaysian outlet will be located at the ground floor of Sunway Pyramid Hotel.
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.
The official opening date has yet to be announced, but stay tuned because we’ll update this post as soon as we get it!
