American tourists Mike Rigby, his wife and four friends were shocked when the bill came after their meal at Newton Food Centre. They had to pay nearly $500 for prawns, crabs, baby squid, beer, rice and buns. That's $30 for a prawn!
Back in 2007, I had a meal there and we had to pay $20 for a prawn. Imagine the shock on my face. 20 bucks for a farkin prawn?! Oh well, it looks like daylight robbery still occurs in Newton Food Centre. betshopboy says it best when he replied to me on Twitter. Thanks to him now I know prawns also got inflation. Damn those seafood sellers at Newton! Damn them!
Update (from my Twitter): Ah those bastards selling the $30 prawns are at this Newton stall, 43 Tanglin Best Seafood. Best my ass!
Stall No 43 at Newton Hawker Centre has been suspended. About time!
