Facebook user Letts Shari shared how he bought a packet of Nasi Sambal Goreng for $3.50 and among the ingredients that he received, it includes one piece of bergedil the size of a 50 cent coin and one piece of dried sotong, among others.
He lamented how the hawker is “king” and that “customers are like beggars”.
Here is what she said (SIC)
Afganistan at Tampines ! First time I am writing something in this group!
Bought nasi sambal goring $3.50. I pc of bagedil the size of a 50 cents coin. One piece of dried miserable dried sotong , 9 pcs of tahu small cubes n 9 pcs of uneveby cut long neans measurung half ins to one inces.
I have heard so many conplaints of the arrogance of the sellers/ stall hokders there and the the attitude of the workers .
They are king and we customers are like beggers begging them to sell us! Finally I experienced what everyone has been telling me .
- Malay food is quite expensive, i normally buy rendang chicken drumstick + omette egg + sambal goreng = $6.50 at bus interchange canteen, i am OK with that, food is nice, chinese mixed food 1 meat + 2 vege = $3.50 to $3.80 at kopishop, the price expensive for malay food due to the ingredients like curry powder, tumeric powder n spices higher in cost
- But brother sedap kan.. sometimes u get more… just bad luck today u get not generous portion. Btw, these food are put at the drink stall. No more attitude workers handling. Just pick choose and pay.
- It is a hard work to do tbe begedil . Cook yourself then you can reshape your own master piece of begedil .
- Eat well . that’s price is normal $3.50 .
Malay food is like that’s .but I love it so much. Malay good sometimes I buy until $,$8.70
For I don’t care atles iam enjoying it so much.
