Popular hotpot chain Haidilao has been around for a while now, and we’re sure you’ve tried it for yourself! But one can never get enough of Haidilao, especially when food choices are aplenty. Based on a personal preference, here are the top 5 Haidilao food items that you definitely must order when you visit!
1) Soup Base
Um, duh? How can you have hotpot without any soup? The foundation of any good hotpot lies within its soup base(s), for without it, even the best ingredients become lacklustre. Not only is a good soup base essential, but it also helps bring out the flavours of the other ingredients. Check out the spicy soup base, tomato soup base and the seafood soup base!
2) Signature Prawn Paste
What’s different about Haidilao’s signature prawn paste is that it is all handmade. Within 3 mere minutes of cooking, your delicious prawn paste will be ready to eat! As if “juicy” and “succulent” weren’t enough, its flavour is further enhanced by special dipping sauces, making it an item you mustn’t miss!
You’ve probably seen this a million times even if you haven’t been to Haidilao yet. Workers swinging long bits of flour in the air, performing elaborate movements – that’s Haidilao’s signature noodles for you. As it is a signature dish and also a form of entertainment, how could you not want to order and experience it for yourself?
4) Brown Sugar Rice Cake
A deep-fried snack, the brown sugar rice cake is there to satisfy your sweet tooth. Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside and dipped into brown sugar, it’s any dessert lover’s heaven!
5) Golden Fried Buns
Otherwise known as fried mantous, these are perfect to eat on their own or to mop up any sauces. Or, if you’re really in the mood for something sweet (again), pair it with condensed milk! These mantous are so versatile they can be eaten plain, savoury or sweet! Perfect!
