Facebook user Peter Lau shared how he visited a chicken rice stall at Bedok South Road and was charged $5.50 for a plate of chicken rice despite the price being listed as $4.50.
Here is what he said
*stall name withheld* at Bedok South Road is doing it again.
They advertise their chicken rice at $4.50. However, upon placing order, they’ll ask you if you want $5.50 or $6.50.
When I asked them why it’s not $4.50, their reply is bcos kampung chicken is expensive. That happened the day before.
Today I watched from far and saw another customer ran into the same issue. And the customer did the same thing as me – paid the higher price since already queued so long and avoid the trouble of going to another store to queue.
I believe many others acted the same. I urge *name withheld* Management to look into the issue and update the advertised price to avoid confusion.
This is the second time that I was caught by the same store and same stall keepers.
- few months ago before shortage of chicken this stall is $2.50, 3.50, 4.50,
half chicken $9, now $15, now all price increased. But their chicken rice very nice. If increase more than what they advertise is unacceptable should just walk away.
- Pay more nevermind, they still use side of chopper to flatten the meat, slap a slice and it expands, then chop into pieces for you. This is a common practice in Sg Chicken Rice sellers. In Msia, they don’t flatten meat this way, they chop full piece and give you.
