This is not the first time that a post on how expensive Nasi Padang dishes are in mall food courts here has circulated online.

In March last year, Facebook user Nizam Vanderbeek reported that a plate of white rice, fried fish, and one serving of vegetables cost him a hefty $14 at a local Kopitiam. An average food court Nasi Padang dish with rice, one meat dish and two vegetable dishes would cost around S$6.50.

Mere weeks later, another netizen expressed shock over the high price of his Nasi Padang dish at the ION Orchard food court.

Revealing that he w as charged $20 for a plate of rice, fried fish, mutton cubes, anchovies and peanuts at the Padang Padang stall at the Food Opera food court in ION Orchard, Raymond Yeoh wrote: “I just moved to Singapore 3 weeks ago and I had this Mix Rice in Padang Padang @ ION Orchard. Guess how much is this? I believe this is not the usual price even for tourist…”
