Over the weekend, I went with some family members to Haidilao Hot Pot, the premier place to get hot pot! You can find Haidilao branded hot pot products all over the world, and it’s certainly delicious. It’s not only well-known for its hot pot; it’s also a great place to see a changing faces and a noodle dance performance!
This restaurant near Taipei 101, once the tallest building in the world, is in high-demand! Part of the reason for that is the restaurant atmosphere. On the half-hour, there are changing faces performances – an ancient Chinese art! They are highly entertaining to watch and a big part of Chinese culture.
If you order noodles for your hot pot, an employee will come to you with a boombox and the long, unstretched noodles. You get a mini performance as she stretches them!
The wait was almost 3 hours, but if you have a lot of time, you can sit in their massage chair and/or get your nails done! If you have kids, send them to the children’s play area while you enjoy some snacks.
