FT CHARGED $5.80 FOR BEE HOON AT DHOBY XCHANGE: “WAS I CONNED?”

I bought my lunch from a economical beef hoon stall at Dhoby Xchange the other day. I chose mix of fried rice and fried bee hoon, stir-fried cabbage, seaweed chicken, and a fried egg.

This combination is my favourite, which costs me around 3.50 at foodcourts in my neighbourhood.

However, the unfriendly and rude male staff charged $5.80!!! Is this because I am a foreigner who doesn’t know the price in Singapore? I’ve never paid this kind of price for “economical” bee hoon. Do you think I was conned?

In one of these days, I will ask my local friends to get the same combination and see how much the stall will charge him.

Do you think it’s overpriced?
