Beware of the $80 prawns at Newton Circus
On Sunday night, I went to Newton Circus to have dinner with Jun, Beth, Cindy, SJ and WH. That's Jun and Beth in the picture. Don't they look lovely?! It was Jun and Beth's first time eating at Newton Circus - and they have been here in Singapore for the past four years! Crikey! Beth is going back to the Philippines leaving poor hubby Jun behind in Singapore. So any gals who want to hang out with Jun and me from next week onwards, do let us know ok? Btw, Jun sings very very well too. Ha! Alright, just joking. Beth is so going to kill me!
So anyway we ordered some really delicious food - stingray, fried rice, fried instant noodles, oysters, carrot cake...
and these $80 per plate prawns! WTF! Yup that was my reaction when the prawn uncle came to deliver the plate of prawns to us. Come on! The prawns are only less than 15cm long and they cost $20 each? Goodness! Anyway Jun ordered two plates without asking for the price so we ended up having to pay $160 for two plates of prawns. Isn't that ridiculous? I mean who would pay $80 to eat a bunch of prawns at the hawker centre?
I also suspected that the prawn uncle was probably cursing at me knowing that I will post this story because of all the pics I took that night with my phone, none of the prawn pics came out good. Seems like the autofocus didn't seem to work on the prawns. Argh! Bloody prawn uncle! So remember guys and gals, next time if you are at Newton Circus, ask for the price before you order the prawns. Better yet, just don't buy the prawns there. It's robbery!!!
