Did you ever think you would have to pay more than $7 for a nasi padang meal at a coffee shop?

Stomper Mj was with his colleagues when they visited a coffee shop in Bukit Panjang for lunch at about 12pm on Tuesday (Oct 22).

He told Stomp: "I can't exactly remember which block it was but this is the one either at Block 257 or Block 258 at Bangkit Road. It's the only coffee shop there with a nasi padang stall.

"I ordered two vegetables, one fish and an egg. When I was told the price, I got a shock. It was $7.30!

"This is my first time paying so much at a coffee shop in a Housing Board (HDB) area.

"I usually order the exact same ingredients at other places, so I expected to pay the usual of about $4 to $5.

"If it's a food court in a shopping mall then I can understand, but this is a coffee shop! 

"Prices should be reasonable. 

"I didn't confront the people at the stall and just paid for it."

What about you? Would you have paid more than $7 for this meal? Let us know in the comments below.
