With rising utility bills and calls to preserve our hawker trade, a newly opened food court in Sengkang has surprisingly chosen to buck the trend of raising prices.

Food Paradise Food Court – which opened on Friday (15 Mar) near Buangkok MRT station – has chosen to price a regular cup of kopi at 50 cents per cup, reported Zaobao on 19 Mar.

That’s more than half the average price ($1.10-1.40) of the hot beverage at local kopitiams.

Could this be the cheapest coffee in Singapore?

Cheap but good kopi

Elderly residents in particular are extremely happy with the ‘half-priced’ coffee and have jio-ed their friends to enjoy a cuppa while they peruse newspapers every morning, according to Zaobao.

As for whether selling coffee for 50 cents is sustainable, sales for the past 3 days have been phenomenal thanks to the popularity of the offer.

The drinks stall owners even happily told Zaobao that they enjoyed “3-4 times higher sales than usual”.

Sengkang residents claim the coffee tastes no different from other places, and enjoy the kampung-like atmosphere of the crowded food court.

This was confirmed by Zaobao’s reporter who witnessed a noisy 3pm crowd on Monday (18 Mar), when they headed down to cover the story.
