McDonald’s is permanently removing the ‘best item’ from its breakfast menu

The Corn Exchange in Manchester is about to get an exciting new addition in the form of HaiDiLao, a restaurant dedicated to the humble Chinese hot pot.

While the warming, rich Lancashire potato response of a hot pot may immediately come to mind, in China they do things a little differently; a Chinese hotpot (火锅 huǒguō) consists of a pot of simmered soup and a selection of raw ingredients – usually meat, seafood, vegetables, tofu and starches.

Diners then sit around the soup and add the ingredient they wish to cook quickly into the boiling liquid. They then scoop the cooked food from the pot with wire ladles or chopsticks and flavor it with individual dips.

Hot pot is believed to be over 1,000 years old and remains one of the most popular dishes in China today, as well as a fantastic way to bring the family together to share and enjoy delicious food.

Well, Mancunians will soon be able to enjoy the novelty of a Chinese hot pot dinner thanks to the arrival of HaiDiLaoone of the most popular Chinese fondue restaurant chains.

The restaurant was founded in Jianyang, Sichuan Province in 1994 by Zhang Yong, who started working in a factory to make ends meet.

His restaurant started out as a malatang stall with only four tables and an investment of 10,000 RMB, but soon gained popularity.

Fast forward two decades, and HaiDiLao has more than 450 branches in countries such as Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, South Korea and Japan, as well as Canada, Australia and America.

Not much is currently known about Manchester’s debut HaiDiLao other than the fact that he will be getting a spot on the Corn Exchange very soon. The London location also operates as a delivery and takeaway service, so we can expect similar things for its Manchester business.

An opening date has yet to be announced.
