Prices for, well, everything have been skyrocketing lately. Even Singaporeans’ favourite budget meal, economical rice, is not that economical now — our regular cai png bill has increased by about $1, with most hawkers raising the price of each dish by 20 to 30 cents.
A cai png stall in Ang Mo Kio even made headlines recently, for charging a customer $11 for cai png with yong tau foo and a slab of fried batang fish (the latter a notoriously pricey cai fan topping).
But at Hong Lim Market & Food Centrehawker stall VI, you can still get a hearty cai fan meal for under $3. A bright blue signboard displays the stall’s simple pricing model: $2.80 for any three items with rice.
