Menu Rahmah has been the talk of the town - well, the whole of Malaysia, actually! For a really good reason too, you can now enjoy a decent meal at RM5 only.
An initiative by the Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry (KPDN) that was launched on 31 January 2023, the Menu Rahmah meal programme aims at helping the public - especially the B40 group - cope with the rising cost of living by providing lunch or dinner meals at an affordable price.
When Menu Rahmah was first introduced, there were already 15,000 participating food premises covering states across the country.
Seriously, less than RM5 for a set meal? What does it include?
This is a full-on proper meal! For RM5, you get to enjoy a set meal that includes rice, a type of protein (usually fish or chicken) and, vegetables. It also comes with a drink, typically a bottle of mineral water. However, there may be slight variations to set offerings - and prices, depending on the F&B operators.
