SINGAPORE — Singaporeans have been shocked after a web-based user shared a receipt totalling S$32 for one burger, fries, and soda at a Five Guys department in Singapore.
The on-line user took to a Singapore information discussion board on Tuesday (Jan 24) to share an image of the receipt for a meal consisting of a burger, fries, and soda. The complete was S$32. “Wow,” the caption learn. “Pricey!”
Many on-line users flocked to the feedback part of the post to both categorical their shock over the high cost or to ask the uploader if she or he a minimum of loved the meals, making the cost price it.
“The soda is S$5???? asked one, to which another replied, “Yes, although it’s refillable, it’s still expensive.”
“Five Guys at Nex is perpetually practically empty. (I don’t know) how they are staying afloat,” wrote one on-line user. Another rapidly responded with wit, saying, “$32 meals, that’s how…”
A couple of non-Singaporeans also took to the feedback to share their ideas on the price of Five Guys in Singapore. “Man, as an American,” one said, “$24.24 USD is insane for a burger. Here I was thinking the US prices were bad at $20 USD for the same meal.”
“I’m visiting Singapore for work for 3 weeks, and I’m shocked at the prices of everything,” one other wrote. “Is pay commensurate here? Because wow.”
For one other netizen, in the case of issues like this, it boils right down to what people are personally prepared to pay for a sure sort and high quality of meals. “If compared to other burger places, it tastes quite good and with large portions,” the web user said.
“Compared to Five Guys in the US or other countries, it’s totally not worth it. That being said, I’d rather pay $30 to eat a good burger than pay $30 to eat some subpar “laksa pasta” at some Instagram-worthy worthy cafe.”
