SINGAPORE: A woman took to social media to express that she had been erroneously charged at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) food court. This is the second time in the past week that a customer has written about dissatisfaction with a meal from SGH.

A netizen who goes by Wingardium Leviosa on Facebook wrote on the COMPLAINT SINGAPORE page that she had been charged “$8 for 1 meat and 2 potatoes sides” at the Nasi Padang stall in the SGH food court. She then proceeded to ask, “Isn’t hash brown a potato? But she charge me under fish fillet. She said it’s still (a) meat item. Like seriously? Koufu SG.”

The woman also posted a photo of her meal and a receipt from Koufu Food Court at SGH, which lists her order as “vegetables, chicken, white rice and fish fillet.” In the photo of the dish, chicken, rice, vegetables and a light brown patty, which appears to be a hash brown, can be seen on a plate.

The post has been shared a number of times, and several netizens have also left comments on the post as well. Many of them say that they find the dish’s price quite expensive. Additionally, some said that the cashier had not done the right thing when she charged the woman for a fish fillet instead of a hash brown, a fried patty made of potatoes.

The Independent Singapore has reached out to Ms Wingardium Leviosa and Koufu Pet Ltd for further updates or comments.

Last Friday (Oct 20), a man expressed his shock and dismay after being charged S$8 for a serving of noodles at SGH.“First time eat so expensive vegetarian bee hoon cost $8. Place : Singapore General Hospital,” wrote Mr Eric Tan on the COMPLAINT SINGAPORE page. He posted a photo of his noodle dish containing fried tofu strips, scrambled eggs, green beans, carrots and bee hoon.

A few days later, Koufu, where Mr Tan bought the dish, reached out to The Independent Singapore, saying, “Koufu has investigated this incident and the pricing of the dish ordered by customer should be $7 instead of $8, Bee Hoon $2, Fried Beancurd Skin $2.50, Omelette $1.50 and Stir-fried Green Bean $1. Nevertheless, we are also speaking to the tenant to review the pricing. We apologise for the unpleasant experience and are reaching out to customer to arrange for refund.” /TISG


UPDATE: 8PM

A spokesperson for Koufu has told The Independent Singapore: “Hashbrown is a product Nasi Padang sells out of the menu. Thus, POS Key was not created for this item. Nevertheless, Koufu will review on the pricing with tenant and has also reached out to customer.”
