I have always been a bit wary about how the hawker center food is priced. I suppose “years of experience” give way to arbitrary amounts that are simply eyeballed and estimated.
Today I got the $3.00 worth of chicken for my chicken rice dish but, while the heap of meat looked approximately the same as the $3 dish I always get, the majority was bones and fat.
I must say that was quite disappointing. Especially since I was looking forward to eating more than just the rice. The quality was just as good as it normally is though.
Will try the wonton mee next time.
