The conveyer belt sushi chain quietly made the change this month, and their website has yet to be updated with the new prices.

TikTok user @jennnncera posted a video lamenting the price change about a week ago:

Twitter user @hyoribo_m3lly also noted the shrinkflation that's been going on:

Math time

In the good ol' days, salmon sashimi at Sushi Express cost S$1.50++ for three slices, which works out to S$1.77 a plate, or S$0.59 a slice.

Now, at S$2++ for two slices, it's about S$1.18 per slice.

That's a twofold increase. Sad.
