"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. "In November last year when I had it, it was also below $20. "It tasted like ordinary chicken rice. "Unfortunately I did not take a picture of the receipt."
