Is Inflation Hitting Penang Street Food ?
This post is intended to get some feedback from Foodie's fans living in Penang.
Recent visit to a chicken rice stall at Macalister Road :
Sin Nam Huat Roasted Chicken & Duck Rice
took me by surprise.
With the intention of a quick late lunch, I decided to have Chicken Rice - Drum Stick (just the drum side was served not inclusive of the thigh) with a small rice.
Guess how much ? RM 4.60
Is it expensive or Is this reasonable ?
Down the road just round the corner, there is another stall selling chicken rice - whole drumstick (drum plus thigh) with rice and some spare parts (chicken heart and gizzard) ...
Guess how much ? RM 5.50
Why the difference ?
Any takers for this ?
