The woman did not specify the restaurant’s name or location but humorously commented on her post, “I can only blame myself for not asking the price when ordering.”

The seemingly excessive price for such a basic meal led her to jest that what she ordered must have been a “turtle” egg, not a regular chicken egg, poking fun at the surprising cost.
