I am and always will be in search of my ideal prata: fluffy on the inside, crisp on the outside, and most importantly? FRIED ON THE SPOT. It gets to me when cold, flourry prata is doled out, along with watery curry. *shudders. A friend told me about The Roti Prata House (which is 24hours btw, fantastic for a supper haunt!) and we tried it.
The coffeeshop is quite a large place that houses a good number of large round tables for group gatherings.
The menu is on a plastic sheet/board and from here it is evident that they offer a huge variety of food, ranging from prata/ thosai to mee goreng and nasi goreng. The portions for the rice and noodles are also huge for the prices that my seem expensive initially....Well, wait until the see the size!!
The prata is called 'crispy prata' here and its dubbed the original crispy prata by most locals. Honestly, I must say the prata isn't really my thing. It's more crispy than fluffy and it just seems like it lacks substance after awhile. The plain prata is 90c per piece and its quite a small prata. Hmm, I would very much rather the original prata though. (Still on my quest for the perfect prata!!) The curry is definitely something to go back for. It's thick enough and packs enough flavour. Not too spicy so it can be eaten on its own -its a perfect complement to the prata. Wonderful!
Overall, I wouldn't really recommend this place to my friends but to each his own. For supper its a great place, but I don't feel that the prata is something to shout out. Im pretty sure it's just me because I like my prata the original style. Would definitely try the mee goreng, nasi goreng and maggie goreng though. Looks super!
