Would you pay $8.50 for a meal of porridge, minced meat, braised pork and cabbage?

That was the question posted by Stomper Foo after he learned that his friend was charged $8.50 for her breakfast at Hong Lim Market & Food Centre last Thursday morning (Aug 3).

Foo, who works in the vicinity of Chinatown, said: "My kaki and I meet for breakfast on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays so she has bought from this stall on the ground floor several times."

According to the Stomper, the same dishes from the same stall cost $8 on July 17.

Strangely, this cheaper meal had sweet potato in the porridge unlike the more recent $8.50 meal.
