When you fork out $15.50 for a meal at a hawker centre, it's not unreasonable to hope that it will at least wow your taste buds.

Unfortunately, that was not the case for Stomper Eric, who was left disappointed by his nasi padang from Geylang Serai Market and Food Centre.

Eric said he visited the Sinar Pagi Nasi Padang stall on Sept 26, at around 12pm.

He told Stomp: "I paid $15.50 for my nasi padang. It had beef rendang, beef tripe, vegetables and an egg.

"I find it very expensive. It was just normal and didn't taste that fantastic.

"As there was a long queue behind me, I didn't ask the staff about it."

Eric was prompted to share his experience after reading a Stomp article about a woman who paid $11.70 for her nasi padang from Gourmet Paradise food court in Toa Payoh.

Neither are alone in their sentiments about overpriced food and underwhelming quality, as seen in a recent string of reports on Stomp.

Is this a trend that diners have to put up with now?
