Zorlandband says of this not-so-crowded halal canteen found in Zone B of the Expo grounds:
Muslim canteens in the food court serve okay halal food, but at three-four times the price: a skewer goes for 9 yuan against the restaurant value of 3 yuan, meat pocket (roujiamo) is sold for 25 against the normal 5 yuan. A plate of Xinjiang noodles is 35 yuan, as well as all other mains.
With EXPO tickets selling at 130-200 yuan, the target clients of these modest eateries are already straining their budget just to be here. The exuberant price tags on simple food are a foul game. Shame on the organizers for trying to get their money back by marking up low-end nourishment!
Well, every cloud has a silver lining, we guess. At least now we know where to get food on the Expo grounds if we don’t want to queue!
