I’ve been meaning to try the plain prata at Crane Road (East of Singapore). But being greedy as I am I ordered the egg one as well. The verdict is, the next time I come here it will be all plain because it’s made fresh and so fluffy compared to what you get at most other prata places. I’ve heard about blogs raving about this for some time and my sister has been dying to try it. Perhaps we’ll go again one day soon.
Went with B and he liked the curry that seemed to taste like a mix of curry and dhall?, but I preferred the spicy chicken curry I had at R R Indian Food at Ang Mo Kio. Maybe if we come earlier one day we can try the fish curry which they say has a tanginess to it. Anyway I prefer to have my prata with sugar sometimes.
For the plain prata I still think that the Sin Ming Roti Prata has a very slight edge in terms of dense chewiness within, but I think this prata will be best for those who like their prata crispy.
The couple here are so polite and nice that it makes you want to patronise the stall again and again. At RR at Ang Mo Kio, and RK at Serangoon Gardens I’ve had terribly abrupt and rude service, so service here was world’s apart and so refreshing.
The environment here was much nicer too – coffeeshop filled with friendly vendors who all seem to be friends (overheard them teasing each other like old buddies when we were there).
I felt that the prata here was not as oily and they seem to concentrate on prata rather than other stuff like mee goreng and such so the whole place doesn’t feel grimy with oil. Somehow concentrating on one item makes them better at what they do – focus (which I need to apply in my life as well).
The prata also tasted a tad healthier somehow with minimal ghee used and the dough seemed to be prepared fresh by the couple and not from a supplier. They also only open from breakfast till lunch time. We were lucky to be there just in time before they prepared to close at 1.15pm.
There have been so many posts written about this place I feel like I have not done my ‘job’ as a blogger having taken so long to try it. Well, finally I’m glad I did.
First heard about it here.
And who can resist our blogging buddy’s recommendation after trying out 72 pratas. Now that’s a well researched recommendation and I’m keen to try more on their list. Their photos have got me mega craving for prata every day.
