I think the last time I’d been to Hawker’s Delight was five years ago (2014), and … things had changed by the time I re-visited in June of 2019.
Well, when I say “things,” I guess I really mean the prices. Everything else seemed to be the same. While a typical rice dish was C$7.15 including tax back then, it was now over C$10.00.
I get it… prices go up. No biggie. The woman at the counter who took my order wasn’t friendly at all. Oh well, it is what it is. I was there for the food, and that aspect of it, which was the most important, didn’t disappoint.
But the prices and attitude did. (Oh, I took it to go.)
Basically, you order and then pay for the item (in my case it was the Hainanese Chicken Rice), and you’re given a number, which is called out when the food is ready.
