Going to a restaurant can severely damage our home budget.
According to the portal “Wirtualna Polska”, the editorial office received a receipt from a restaurant in Podlasie, where the client paid PLN 192 for a meal! He had to pay as much as PLN 28 for a portion of pierogi. Get to know the details!
Expensive not only in holiday resorts
We have already got used to receipts from tourist destinations, which are for high amounts. It turns out, however, that it is expensive not only in resorts, but also in many places less crowded by tourists.
One of the readers of “WP” decided to share the receipt from a small town in the Podlasie Voivodship. The trip to the restaurant ended with a receipt amounting to 192 zlotys.
When analyzing the receipt, you can come across several extremely expensive items. The vegan lard turned out to be exceptionally expensive, the cost of which was PLN 54 for two portions (the cost of one is PLN 27). A serving of pierogi with fruit costs PLN 28.
The drinks were also expensive. You have to pay PLN 15 for one lemonade. The cost of a serving of French fries is PLN 10, and a cup of cappuccino is PLN 12. The receipt also included water (PLN 7) and four beers, the total cost of which was PLN 36 (PLN 9 each).
Unfortunately, the rising costs of products and services are related to rampant inflation. According to preliminary data provided by the Central Statistical Office, only in June inflation was 15.6%.
The last time we dealt with such high inflation in March 1997. In May this year, inflation was 13.9 percent. This means that within a month it increased by 1.7%.
