Our bill usually hovers around $90-$100 for the two of us. Maybe because we tend to order the usual stuff and quantity. Today’s meal, we didn’t order seafood, and for meat, only half serving of sliced Kurobuta which I don’t find it great compared to those I have eaten at Japanese restaurants.

Their 酸辣粉 is really delicious. Today also tried their 酒酿圆子,glutinous rice balls in fermented rice wine, lacked the pungent rice wine taste though.

Guess if more pax sharing the soup base, per head would be cheaper? I always go for 4 types of soups of which one is clear water ($0). I get to drink 3 types of soup ($6 for each soup X3 =$18) and the cost is cheaper than I go for 2 soup base ($10 each soup X 2 = $20). :?

Today’s 3 bones collagen soup and 酸菜 soup came as a delightful surprise to us. Next round we gonna try the 青椒soup.
sounds tasty ..! 2 pax a$100 also high side , u ordered 好料 喔 . i din try with my family yet,
went twice hdl, once beauty pot - all were above $50 pax .
my ds said his classmates went, they paid each abt mid $20s ... probably they order normal meat only,

Depends how you define Hao liao. We are happy with 酸辣粉,饺子,土豆,lotus roots, luncheon meat, bean curd skin in Mala soup. All these are our “Hao liao”, :lol: but they are cheapo stuff.
I think bcos just 2 pax sharing one pot of soup, there is already a min charge (almost $20). Drink tea $3, take their chilli add $4 (per pax)...

So far, I have not eaten anything like $20+ per pax at HDL!

there are reasonable price one like paradise pot ( paradise grp member got pts/ disc)
Cheaper ones like shi Li fang
N Japanese sukiya, Shabu Sai
But the Chinese hotpot version is big fashion now coz the soup base has more variety n more dishes to order . I like Chinese version now coz lots of mushroom n fried tao kee.

Joining in the fun here on HDL. Sometimes they have lunch promotion like the below, $15.80 to $19.80 ++
I tried once for lunch promotion, bill was $50 for the 2 of us.
I think prices are cheaper from 12am to 3am too if you want to eat HDL for supper.

I saw this ad that day. But not valid on PH/wkend lunch. $50 for 2pax very reasonable.

OMG, 12am-3am eat HDL as supper can “die”! :smile:

Since there are so many foodies here: any suggestions for a quiet dinner for 2 tomorrow night? Not too expensive (under $40 per head?), preferably in the west/central area. Other requirements are no chilli, no dairy, not too heavy food (waistline considerations). Japanese, maybe? Thanks!
