Haidilao will be opening its 13th outlet in Singapore at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.

According to Yahoo, Haidilao's outlet at The Shoppes is slated to open in early May.

It will also be the first outlet in Singapore to offer individual hotpot stations, targeted at single diners.

A large part of the hotpot experience is about eating together as a group (and being able to share a wide variety of dishes) so the individual hotpot stations might cater to hardcore hotpot fans who will be able to enjoy hotpot even by themselves.
