You can get the list of premises involved in this campaign at 1Pengguna website. The current url to the list of premises is at:

It weird that the list is displayed in HTML pages. No proper formatting makes it hard to read. Not a searchable database. Selangor, for example, has 77 entries (as of this blog entry  date), and you have to scroll or search using browser function to locate premises. I really wonder how they actually allowed this pages to be created and published. Must be a very lousy IT company.

Looking at price of things, its  compatible to or slightly cheaper than your average stalls or restaurants.  For example, roti canai + teh o is charged RM2 in some of the eateries.  Nasi Putih + Ayam goreng is charged RM4 at some locations.

If you want to save money, just pack some bread + butter/kaya/jam/etc from house.

Another thing, I only saw two Chinese stall (under MBSA). No other Chinese eateries. Does it mean you can’t get breakfast for under RM2 or lunch for under RM4 at Chinese outlets?

 

The public can now have breakfast for a ceiling price of RM2 and lunch for RM4 at 728 eateries in Peninsular Malaysia, through the Menu Rakyat 1Malaysia (1Malaysia People’s Menu) programme.

Launched by Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob at ‘Q’ Bistro Nasi Kandar, here, Thurday, the programme aims to reduce the public’s daily expenses when frequently eating out.

“The public rarely have lunch and breakfast at home now, so with this programme, they can spend RM6 for both meals at selected outlets,” he told the media after launching the programme.

Ismail Sabri said they expected the number of participating eateries nationwide to reach 1,000 by the year end.

He said other eateries interested to join the programme could obtain further information from ministry’s offices in the states.

“An advantage of this programme is that the operators will receive special buntings from the ministry to be displayed in front of their outlet, which will attract more customers,” he added. – Bernama
