Aiyoh! Even taugeh has not been spared.
The humble taugeh, a popular and cheap vegetable, has not been spared the effects of spiralling prices. The price will cost 10 sen more from Saturday, Dec 10.
Taugeh is widely used for hawker food, i.e., taugeh chicken hor fun, char koay teow, hokkien mee, mee rebus, tauhu sumbat, poh piah and pasembur. It is also served as a side dish with salted fish.
According to taugeh producers, the increase is necessary due to the increased cost of the raw material, the imported mung beans. A gunny sack of beans used to cost RM75 but it is now RM135.
