My bro was enlisted into Army on 4th March and only able to book out 2 weeks later, exactly on his birthday 18th March.
I’ve been looking forward for my bro to get into NS because he would be forced to stop playing his computer games all night long and hopefully become more mature and sensible -_-
After sending my bro in for enlist, my dad and i went Chinatown for Yum Cha before heading for a walk at the newly opened Nex shopping center.
While searching for food to dabao back home for dinner, we chance upon this newly opened restaurant – Pao Xiang Bak Kut Teh. Their opening seems grand as there’s lot of congratulatory florals displayed outside the restaurant, which i guess the owner must be of certain status.
My dad and i decided to check out the new place for our pack away dinner. The strange thing is, before you stepped in, the restaurant display photos of the dishes but not the price!
By the time we saw the exorbitant prices on the menu, we were already in the restaurant, it would be embarrassing if we would want to leave. Never mind about that we thought maybe the food is really nice and portion would be big, so should be worth the price? So we tried to order 3 different kinds of meat and to my amaze, they doesn’t serve salted veg? hmm
While waiting for our packed food, which was ridiculously long, we surveyed other table’s dishes, my dad and i were stunned by the small portion of meat served and we were praying that our packed food would be of a bigger portion which would at least justify the price. Our packed food finally came and a sigh of relief as the containers were at least larger than the portion of food served. I made my payment at the counter while my dad took the packed food.
While on the way out, my dad told me that the packed food seems very light and true enough, it seems like just the weight of the container and rice.
To our horror when we opened the container at home….
The meat was like only 1/4 of the container!!
We totally felt cheated! As you can see, the portion does not even cover 1/2 of the spoon!
This is seriously the first time i ever felt so angry over an unjustified meal. Although we ordered 3 portion + rice, but as compared to what outside stall sells, it’s only for 1 person portion even with the RICE can!! The rice is also ridiculously so small in portion and 1 packet cost $1.20!!
In the end, i headed out with <3 for dinner while my parents ate the bak kut teh which they said it’s not even nice! OMG!
Seriously, if you are considering having a hearty bak kut teh meal, please do not visit
Pao Xiang Bak Kut Teh
it’s daylight robbery! My worse encounter of a restaurant so far, please do not patronize unless you are not hungry and have some spare cash to spend.
