    Default ....come on man......

    The "local food" place out side is mainly serving local food and i suppose its suppose its there as an alternative for people who aren't keen at eating from the designer or hip coffee joint or restaurant.

    Mebbe plus the fact that these places "local food" place are out and away from the main area due to the "bau dapur" - in malay......or meaning "smell of the kitchen" that sticks to your shirt/clothes normally experienced in food center.

    Well, being "another ordinary average income" Singaporean who wanna spent time there over the weekend......would't it be logical to have places where family can enjoy their meals as and when they want at reasonable rates. But $2.85 for a 250ml can drink will truely be some what overboard.

    So Does this mean that ESPLANADE is only cut "suitable" to suit the large pockets??.... Or "too bad....you have to go across to Marina Square to eat" kinda thingy...

    Share your thoughts.......

    Like I said, they're going after the 600 million spent on building the shells(which is totally unncecessary in the first place) from anywhere they can lay their hands on.

    To me, its just bad building economics.

    But it could be partly be due to the ridiculously high rent that the shop owners have to pay.. So they may have no choice but to inflate the prices sky high....

    actually i'm not surprised... if you can fork out $10 for a coke in a disco/nightspot, why not $2.85 in a hi-crass place like Esplanade?

    soft drink at boat quay is seven bucks. thats why i never buy soft drink at pub/disco cos a beer is only a couple bucks more.

    quite sure... as far as the nightspot people are concerned, a coke costs almost as much as a alcoholic drink cos they wanna discounrage people from drinking soft drinks and get loose with the alcohol... that's my take on it anyway.
