Youtiao stall: An honesty challenge
There is a very interesting stall in Setia Alam‘s pasar malam (night market) — held every Saturday.
What makes this stall interesting is that, in a way, it is a “social test”.
The stall owner is just focused on preparing the youtiao. Customers who want youtiao will just DIY — pack what they want AND leave the money in the provided container.
Yes, it challenges the customer to be honest. The stall owner is relying on the honesty of the customers to put in the correct amount (and take the correct change).
Note: Youtiao from this stall is good. I also like the youtiao for its mini size.
