Winter in Shenzhen is getting colder and colder these days. Eating hotpot with friends undoubtedly is a fun and yummy thing to do. I want to introduce you some of my favorite hotpot restaurants in town here. If you like them, add them to your food and drink’s list.
One of my favorite hotpot restaurants is Wu’s Old Pot Hotpot (吴记老锅底麻辣火锅). Almost every time I go there for a hotpot, I need to wait for at least half an hour. However, you can leave your mobile phone number there and they will call you when your RSVP No. is close so that you can go shopping nearby while waiting. If you order a spicy hotpot or spicy-light combined one, you can enjoy a free flow of duck blood and tofu. The spicy hotpot there is really yummy! Consumption per person is about RMB 60.

Hai Di Lao Hotpot Restaurant (海底捞火锅) is famous for its considerate services. If you need to wait for a table, you could have lots of entertainments at the waiting area, like pokers, free manicure, etc.. When you are eating, you still can enjoy a series of services, like watching a performance of “changing face”. The food provided there is ok. However, you would like to come again because of its excellent services. What’s more, this is a 24-hour hotpot restaurant in Shenzhen. Consumption per person is about RMB 100.

Qian Wei Shuan/ Delicious Hotpot (千味涮) is a normal but ok one for hotpot. You can easily find it in different big shopping malls. The space among tables might be a little bit limited. My favorite hotpot there is the tomato soup one. The flavor is just right – not too sour or too sweet. It won’t make you feel too greasy if you are a meat-lover. Food is delivered soon after you sit down. Consumption per person is about RMB 60.
