Now, before you think that big or small doesn’t matter, a police report was actually lodged for the size discrepancy of zichar dishes.

Man Called the Police After His Zichar Dishes Were ‘Big’ Instead of ‘Small’

A Facebook user named Guo was having dinner with his family last Saturday, 12 Sep 2020, when the incident occurred.

The whole family was dining at a zichar store called, ‘Lucky BBQ Seafood’ located at Pasir Panjang Food Center.

Guo ordered four plates of rice and four other dishes in small size. The bill was $69.

He was puzzled initially by the amount but didn’t ask much until the plate of cockles was served to the family.

It was of a bigger portion.

He then confronted the stallholder who explained what happened.

Stallholder Had Decided To Upsize For Them Without Asking

The stallholder explained that she gave the family a bigger portion of cockles as she was worried that they might not have enough to eat.

Guo felt that it was strange for the lady to take the matter into her own hands without consulting him first.

He claimed that the lady had a hostile attitude after being confronted, as she had slammed the refund of $21 on his table.

When Guo made a complaint about the first dish, the lady then proceeded to change the rest of the three dishes into small portions.

She mentioned that Guo wanted an apology from her as he didn’t buy her explanation and felt cheated.


As she was busy that day, she was hoping that Guo will return to his table after she has changed his orders back.

However, Guo called the police when the lady didn’t apologise to him.

After the police conducted an investigation, the authorities stated that the incident was a misunderstanding. The three remaining dishes were served and consumed.
