My mother and I have been visiting this stall, over several years, for its robust, minty Lei Cha broth whenever we would visit Peoples Park Centre for a tour of its travel agencies as well as to get budget haircuts, but we will no longer do so. While its vegetables are fresh, with some of them grown commendably by the stall owners at their own farm, and seasoned well, the savoury appeal of their food does not make up for the stalls wildly inconsistent portioning of ingredients, manipulative pricing and deceptive guise of the stalls attendants - perhaps even owners.The incident that has led me to lose trust in the business took place during my repeat visit to the stall, done so during COVID-19 phase 3 (heightened alert), on 07/08/21. I was warmly greeted with a smile by a man in spectacles - also the person preparing the food behind the counter - when I passed by the stall, and that had made me feel so welcome that it did not take me long before I found myself ordering two bowls of Lei Cha Brown Rice at $6.8, but with the brown rice substituted with noodles. I had told the lady taking orders that I would like two bowls of the Lei Cha Brown Rice ($6.80) with the brown rice swapped to their noodles, before noticing on the signboard that there is also a Lei Cha Kolo Mee option, priced at $4.8, sitting below Lei Cha Brown Rice. When it was time for me to make payment, I clarified with the lady if my order would amount to $9.6 + $0.2 x 2 for takeaway containers = $10, only to find that I was going to be charged $13.6 + $0.2 x 2 = $14. Upon probing further as to why I was charged the more expensive version, she, as well as the man in spectacles, quipped in unison that there is at least more than double the vegetables in the $6.8 version than the $4.8 version. I took their word for it and left, expecting that claim to be true when I would have my dinner later at home.However, I was sorely disappointed to find that the ingredients were almost similar in portion to the $4.8 version that my mother would always order on my behalf when dining in at the hawker centre was still allowed (pre-COVID). Moreover, I was frustrated to find that the mint broth was also filled less than half of the tiny takeaway container that it was poured into, a far cry from the normal amount that we would be given in a bigger black bowl while dining in at the hawker centre. An image of their portions for the $4.8 dining-in bowl and a different image showing the $6.8 takeaway bowl that I was sold today, both taken before touched, have been included with this review for comparison - a visibly stark difference is apparent in the amount of mint broth offered, and there is no appreciable difference in the ingredients provided. For the avoidance of doubt, there was some ingredients found at the bottom of the takeaway bowl after finishing the whole bowl, but the sum of the ingredients fails miserably in fulfilling the at least more than double claim.They have also shown either an indifference towards order requests, i.e. dietary preferences, of their customers or a lack of understanding of what they are selling. When I told the lady responsible for taking orders that I do not wish to have any coriander added to my Lei Cha noodles, given my past experience with the accompaniments of the noodles/rice that I have had in the past, I was annoyed to have found my takeaway bowl inundated with the pungent herb upon digging in.Given my experience with the stall today, I feel foolish for having brought a few of my friends and relatives over in the past to support their business; why would a business act wilfully against a patrons wishes while also charging a significantly higher price, i.e. $2 extra, for the same amount of ingredients as what I would have had for their $4.8 Lei Cha Kolo Mee? Doing so would only leave a sour taste in their patrons mouths. A business that not only skimps unethically on ingredients, but also charges opportunistically for a quick profit, really speaks volumes about how much it values its patrons.
