Kimly Mixed Rice stall @ Kimly coffeeshop
— Pasir Ris Drive 6, Blk 444
Dropped by stall operated by Kimly Group today, 21st FEB 2023 (TUE), to buy a packet of Cai Fan for dinner.
Added the following to plain rice:
• 1 slice of fish
• bok choy (小白菜）
• long beans
• tofu strips
Was charged $10.20!
I understand inflation is high & the 1% GST hike has kicked in. But $10.20 for 1 fish + 3 veggies????
That’s like Ion Orchard or Taka’s foodcourt prices!
Ohh, I forgot to mention: I found 1 tiny prawn (refer to pic)
After my initial disbelief, I returned to the stall to ask for a receipt. Guy I approached opened up packet & stared at food for some time before asking a colleague if I was charged correctly. This colleague then started shouting at the top of his lungs the breakdown at the very crowded coffeeshop. I promptly told him that I just wanted a receipt.
I’ve patronised this stall for awhile now & this is what I’ve discovered: I could be charged $5 on Day 1 & $9 the next day for ordering the same food.
It all depends on which guy is taking my order!
I also like to add that prices at coffeeshops/foodcourts/hawker centre in PASIR RIS is arguably the most expensive (if not the MOST expensive) among heartland neighbourhoods in SG. I can attest to that as I travel around our island on a constant basis due to the nature of my job.
Shame on Kimly & some of their staff.
Here are what netizens think:
- Did not check the pricing when u are ordering? I guess the long beans fried with mince meat cos this will be charge under meat dishes ! Fish $4-$6 per slice is common lah especially if steam fish they have to get fresh ones daily if fried ones they get frozen fish will be cheaper
- May want to check the price before ordering the fish. I usually do that to avoid heart attack…
- Food at Punggol and pasir ris are expensive
- sometime must check properly, I order 3 veg , end up owner told me 2 of the veg inside got minced meat so charge 2 meat 1 veg,
