Malaysia cut its export of live chickens to Singapore on Wednesday, resulting in a supply shortage for the island republic.
With rising chicken prices many vendors are unsure how long they can keep their businesses before raising their prices.
Chicken rice is considered by Singaporeans to be its national dish, where using freshly slaughtered chickens is often a stamp of quality.
Using frozen chickens to substitute live chickens is definitely a no-go for the hawker stall owners.
“Frozen chicken? You expect us to cook chicken rice using frozen chicken? It will not taste good,” Singaporean hawker Madam Tong said in a CNN interview.
“If that’s the case and you’re happy with that kind of quality, you might as well go to Malaysia and eat chicken-rice there lah.”
Malaysian Twitter users responded with fresh hot takes against the sassy stall owner.
Yes, as you should. Why would you want to have 3rd rate chicken rice in Singapore? Come to Malaysia, we hv the best nasi ayam and nasi lemak. Nasi lemak ayam berempah sambal kerang is the best here. Come take your pick. https://t.co/sAswDdsEF9

Aunty, if they come over to eat chicken rice in Malaysia they might end up not patronising your shop anymore. Even when chicken supply is there https://t.co/crAo5WtpTr

One online user did give fair constructive criticism over harsh roasts.
Auntie has a point that Malaysian hawker stalls are often guilty of using the cheapest/oldest chicken they can get especially in the Klang Valley.But auntie ah, SG ingredients and hygiene may be better but you don’t see Malaysians running over for SG chicken rice https://t.co/7zAVWvmXAf
