Indeed, the stall certainly deserves praise for continuing to be an option for those on the hunt for nice, inexpensive meals.

Stall has made headlines before for affordable pricing

Earlier this year, the same Facebook user shared that Xian Jin Mixed Vegetable Rice has kept cai png prices low.

For a packet of rice and three sides, customers would have to fork out just S$2.

Speaking to Shin Min Daily News, stallholder Ms Lin said that they have always kept prices for cai png at S$2 as they are mindful of seniors staying in the area.

This has continued to be their operating procedure for the 18 years they have been in business.
