She said that when she questioned the stall, they allegedly told her “now all things expensive”, as she calls it a “daylight robbery”.

Here is what she said (SIC)

This Indian stall at sixth Ave charge my helper $3.50 for bean sprouts n white rice. Question them, they say now all things expensive. Daylight robbery sia. What do your think???

Stall responds

The owner of the Indian food stall spoke to Shin Min Daily News and said that they mostly serve set meals and not ala carte dishes.

The owner claims that his food is already “favourably” priced, and added that the maid wanted a vegetable set meal which costs $4 but wouldn’t be able to finish the meal.

The $4 set meal consisted of 2 vegetables, rice, curry and some crisp; and because she was afraid that she couldn’t finish it, she got the rice with some bean sprouts and curry.

The owner then said that he listed down the prices for the maid and told her that it would be more expensive, but he claimed that the maid had insisted on the order.

Netizens’ comments

  • Now they always use “everything is expensive” as an excuse and anyhow charge! Very fed up
  • Let the stall know one kilo of bean sprout only $1.50. Rental at sixth avenue maybe high but the scoop of bean sprout the most is a dollar with 60cts white rice and take away box 20cts. So why $3.50??? No meat no eggs
  • even if beansprout $1, rice $1, takeaway box $0.30 wont be until $3.50. Wahlaoo so expensive.
  • just walk away no need buy from them. there are many such rip off stalls around
  • That’s one time business, no 2nd time.
  • I can get more veggie ingredients with rice at just $2.70 from many caipng stalls. At least 2-3 types of veggie sides. This stall is overcharging your helper.
  • Train your helper not to pay and buy if this kind of price. Walk away without purchase is not a crime.
