Hawker Food Same Price But Smaller Portions

I've noticed that the potions and ingredients of the usual hawker food have decreased although the prices remain the same as before.

I was told that chap fun (economy rice) sellers are dishing out a smaller portion of rice at first serving and tend to take the opportunity to charge more for what used to be a standard meal - what used to cost RM4.50 now cost RM5 - RM5.50.

The cost of living in KL has definitely increased but the income of the average white collar worker remains the same.

Readers has sent SMS' to the Star listing the best chap fun places in the Klang Valley as follows:

  • The best economy rice in the country is located at Restaurant Peng Kee, Jalan Kenari, Puchong (at the back of Restaurant Sam You). From: Yin Peng
