Prices Of Ya Kun Kaya Toast Set Meals Apparently Higher

Current inflation rates have caused prices of many commodities to rise, especially for meals at local eateries.

The change has seemingly taken effect at Ya Kun Kaya Toast as well, which purportedly increased prices for its set meals by S$0.70.

With some of the meals now 12.5% costlier, customers have taken to social media platforms to express their surprise.

Indeed, the issue of rising prices has often been a subject of debate in recent times.
