Coucou Hot Pot is coming to Singapore.
We've honestly never heard of it before this, but it's a restaurant specialising in Taiwanese-style hotpot and bubble tea, which is a great combination—hence this article.
It does, however, seem pretty popular overseas, with outlets in Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong
A quick search online shows that it was founded in 2016, and since grown to become an "online celebrity hot pot restaurant".
The Singapore branch will be located on Level 3 of Suntec City, and its hoarding indicates that the opening is due in December.

It might not be the same in Singapore, but it appears to be around Haidilao's pricing, judging by the overseas menu.
Some of the beverages you can order at Coucou Hot Pot's Singapore outlet include Taiwan tea, Taiwan bubble tea and Taiwan beer.
