It looks like pockets are pretty tight when it comes to dining out. About 65 per cent of poll respondents say they'd budget only S$10-20 per person when dining out. It must be tough for restauranteurs. On their end, they face spiralling food and operating costs, and have to raise prices. Consumers, already feeling a greater pinch, are budgeting for cheaper eats.
Me? I'm going for lower budget, single digit dollar meals too, but once in a very long while, I will go for a treat. Sigh. Must work harder to find cheap and tasty eats!
