GH lady charged GH₵2,529 for three noodles and drinks

In an earlier YEN.com.gh report, social media buzzed when three friends from Ghana, one of whom appears to go by the name of Patience, released a bill from a restaurant they chose not to name.

The bill returned with a total of GH 2,529 despite only being for three plates of noodles, two beverages, one Moet Rose, and one order of fried calamari.

One of the women called the cuisine a "nonsense meal," implying that it was not as lovely as one might think, which made several people laugh on social media.

According to Sayo, the most disturbing part of the incident was that she had already finished eating an entire portion of the meal due to hunger before discovering the uncomfortable reality.

"At about 6 pm. I was talking to my friend about hunger as I hadn’t had anything to eat since morning. Please note that I am at the hospital caring for my mum."
