Their approach is quite simple: they want you to fork over your money for a main course that not only costs an arm and a leg, but also manages to taste worse than the $9 Western fare available at the food courts. The food quality here is so abysmal, bland and disgusting, that it makes the food court offerings seem gourmet in comparison. Yes it is disgusting, considering the high price-point they’re making you pay for this crap.

I tried their Taiwanese Fried Chicken meal, which came with a lackluster serving of tasteless, unevenly fried rice and a rather sad-looking egg. Frankly, if they can’t even master the art of creating a decent plate of fried rice, it’s a clear sign that their cooking skills are seriously lacking. After all, fried rice is pretty much basic survival food. But alas, we all fell for the illusion they had crafted on social media.

Now, as if that disappointing main course wasn’t enough, they also throw in a small, pathetic buffet of cold dishes that seem to be made of solidified grease, along with some uninspiring salads and fried frozen fare, all in a bid to make you believe you’re getting a great deal. They even offer up some mee sua that tastes like plain cornstarch braised in a mishmash of spices, along with a seemingly endless supply of bubble tea.

My order alone, set me back about $25 before tax. This is fine, IF, the food was good. On that particular evening, there were four of us, and together we paid nearly $150 (with tax) for this utter disappointment. It’s safe to say that the individuals behind this establishment are simply jerking off your hard-earned money. Nothing more. Food so bad, price so expensive - you really wonder how this is even legal.

Save yourself the trouble and steer clear of this rip-off joint. While it might be gaining traction among the Gen-Z crowd who might not know any better, respect yourself enough to never succumb to this exaggerated, BS hype.

After all, Wong Fu Fu clearly doesn’t respect and value you enough to serve up decent food at such a high price point.

Is this what food has come to in Singapore? For $8.20 you literally get 6 thin slices of frozen smoked duck, a bowl of rice and 2 pieces of cucumber. So sad. Just looking at it makes me feel like crying. What a rip off...
