When it comes to dining experiences, one expects a satisfying and honest meal, especially when trying out a local favourite like minced meat noodles. However, a netizens recent visit to the minced meat noodle stall at Block 401 Hougang Avenue 10 left him not only disappointed but also concerned about the ethics of some food establishments.
However, netizens pointed out that reporting this to the One Service app instead of informing the stall owner is absurd.
The man said:
Blk 401 Hougang Avenue 10 dishonest minced meat noodle stall at KPT
I had breakfast today at KPT, located at Block 401 Hougang Avenue 10, after the first week of their renovation completion. I ordered minced meat noodles with fish balls at the minced meat noodle stall, where the lady and uncle, whom I believe to be the stall owners. The lady took orders and handled cash, while the uncle was responsible for cooking.
The queue was long, and it took me roughly 15 minutes to receive my minced meat with fish ball noodles, but I was really disappointed with the content of the dish. It contained only fish balls and fish cakes, with no pork meat in the bowl. The price charged was $4.5 SGD, but I felt cheated because the contents were different as description. I hesitated to confront them because I was afraid of potential arguments, and I didn’t want to spoil my mood on my day off.
However, I’m posting this in the CS to alert all of you to please avoid such dishonest stalls. If you do order noodles from this stall, ensure that they prepare the correct food for you. Our intention is not to boycott these dishonest stalls, but rather to teach them a lesson. Let them remember that we are watching when they conduct their business. Being honest and not cheating your customers will likely result in better returns.
I understand that the economy is currently tough for everyone, including myself. However, that doesn’t justify using this as an excuse to deceive customers. I would be fine with paying a slightly higher price for minced meat noodles with fish balls. If you wish to offer a variety of noodle options, please clearly specify that you are selling fish ball noodles instead of minced meat noodles. It can be misleading when people think they are ordering minced meat noodles with fish balls but end up with fish cake and fish ball noodles; that’s a significant difference.
I’ve also posted at One Service by making a request to relevant authorities to investigate this matter.
