Food Prices Are Going Up. What Can We Do?

The prices of roti canai and teh tarik - both staples of Malaysian mamak restaurants - have gone up, with shop owners being forced to adjust their pricing to keep up with the rising cost of food overall. We look into this, firstly by trying to make sense of these climbing costs, and why an index specifically looking at teh tarik and roti canai is helpful. Then, we get some tips on how to plan and adjust our food budget to accommodate these increasing prices.
