We go through phases where we eat out a lot and get takeaway a lot. Mainly when we’re out of our routine, we’re both tired, and we just couldn’t be bothered cooking. Ok, well hubby just couldn’t be bothered cooking – I don’t exactly cook. Much. Well not really at all.
Anyway, so when we do eat out or grab some takeaway hubby usually pays so I never really check out how much things are costing us. Then the other night we got Thai takeaway for dinner. It really is one of my favourtie takeaways. I definitely prefer it to Chinese. Sorry I digress. So we went to pick it up and I ran into collect it. That’ll be $55 thank you.
WHAT I thought. $55. Are you freaking kidding me? Have I been living under a rock or has Thai takeaway always been THAT expensive? And that was with a discount for pick-up.
So what did we order? I’m glad you asked. We ordered one entree of chicken satay skewers, 2 dishes: a Massaman Curry and BBQ Duck and a small boiled rice. I knew duck was expensive but I really didn’t think it would add up to that much. So anyway we get home and I decide to check the menu. $20 for the duck and about $18 for the massaman. Now don’t get me wrong the food was good, but still I thought it was expensive?
Who knows maybe it’s even more expensive elsewhere? Sydney-siders what do you pay for Thai?
So am I being a tight arse whose been living under that rock, or do agree?
