Last week, a now viral post on Twitter garnered a lot of attention from the media and local netizens.

According to the post, the Twitter user, who ate mixed rice at a restaurant in Jalan Leban Chondong Kuala Rompin, complained that she was shocked when she was charged RM100 for two plates of rice dishes which included prawns, squid, and vegetables. 

Now, the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism in Pahang has addressed the seemingly exorbitant price, saying that it was in fact reasonable. The ministry’s director, Sharuddin Jali told The Star,

“Checks revealed that the photograph which went viral showed two pieces of prawns when the total number taken was four pieces including other vegetable and squid dishes.”

“For the prawns, it was stated that the price would be according to the size served, which ranged from RM50 to RM100.”

Therefore, there isn’t really any action to be taken against the restaurant since they technically did not do anything wrong, and urged Malaysians to check the prices of the food at these establishments before serving themselves.

This isn’t the first instance involving super expensive ‘economy’ rice, though. Last year, another Malaysian shared their frustration when they were charged RM34.70 for a plate of rice with fish, prawns, and vegetables, leaving many netizens shocked and confused by the inflated price. Well, that’s nothing compared to RM100, though!

What do you think of the ministry’s statement? Let us know in the comments below!
