$35 for chicken rice set? It's due to 'overwhelming response', says restaurant

dined at a hotel restaurant recently, he was shocked when the bill came to $35 for a plate of chicken rice and a drink. They told him the price was due to 'overwhelming response', said the STOMPer.

"It cost me $35, GST included. "In June, I also had it, and it cost me $17.50. "According to the restaurant, the price increase was due to the overwhelming response and demand for the chicken rice.
