How is this even possible?

RM9.20 for a plate of plain rice and a piece of chicken?

This is almost criminal like if you were to ask me!

I was going through my social media account when I came across this posting where a Plus highway user has accused one of it’s rest area stalls of overcharging for a simple plate of rice and fried chicken.

The alleged incident happened at the Gunung Semanggol south bound R&R.

The complainant, with the Facebook name Mohd Ridzuan, said he was charged RM9.20 by the operators of stall no 9 for simple meal of plain rice, a little gravy and a single piece of chicken.

According to the itemised bill Ridzuan attached, the chicken itself cost RM8!

If these claims are true, then not only Ridzuan, I think all consumers have a right to be very upset.

I may be wrong but as far as I know, highway food operators are subsidised by Plus, so how can this even be.

Even without subsidisation, the price should not have been that high for such a simple meal!

This is daylight robbery!
