Boat Shack restaurant is one of the examples that serve overpriced food. However, there are several other places that serve such pricey food. One of them is multiplexes! In fact, this has been a subject of long heated debate where customers were prohibited to carry their food. So, the authorities at cinema halls can charge around ₹200 excluding taxes for just popcorn!

Similarly, food items are served at unbelievable prices at airports. Many outside food items are not permitted inside airports because they are high-security areas. Therefore, travellers have no choice but to eat or drink something expensive inside the airport grounds when they are hungry. Security concerns and several other issues limit the supply to these airport shops. As a result, there is a discrepancy between supply and demand, which raises the price of the commodity.
