cheap crappy takeout chinese food is no longer cheap though still probably crappy. my $18 pre-pandemic order of fried dumplings, cold sesame noodles and some pint of chicken dish which was $18 is now $26. so instead i walked to the still cheap-o dumpling place, not vanessa, and got a non-dumpling dish for the first time, their duck noodle soup which was... not good. the duck was 95% bones and skin. it did have a fried egg in it which vanessas never had so.... protein achieved.

Itís happening with all meat, not just beef.

  • this was just an across the board 30% price increase when they usually bumped apps up 50 cents and mains $1 every 3 to 5 years. assume in this case it was more covid/rent related and maybe the prices were due for a hike. they charge maybe another 10% via seamless to offset that hit so its not necessarily related to that.

  • Yeah. COVID bump across the board.
