LOVE (teh) / HATE (prata) OK Jul 28, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Indian | Coffeeshop

Whenever I hit Singapore, I sample teh tarik prepared by different places as many as I can, except this one - I go every time when I'm in town.

Despite the fact that I'm a teh-lover, I love this place cos of its teh's long-lasting after-taste, and I was a bit mythicize Little India SHOULD BE a (better) place for foodstuff.

In a carbo-craving day, I also ordered a prata, thinking that the prata in Little India SHOULD BE a (better) one with prata's link back to Chennai. When the small prata appears on my table, I was expecting the prata is soft, flaky, and hot. After tearing the prata and eating a small bite of this unexceptionally flat flatbread by folk, I was disappointed - it is the hardest (and coldest) that I had then ever!! Then I start recalling... well, I never notice this shop has a proper place for making prata.

A while ago, I had been to Chennai and tried to sample how its prata different from Singapore / Malaysia version. Yet, during my visit, prata is also something which is quite hard to find... I can't say it doesn't exist in Chennai, but it seems it's in a line with Singaporean fried rice noodles in Hong Kong... anyway.

With a touch of salt Smile Jul 16, 2010

Sometimes I thought there might be a taste association in food industry, similar to the colour association in the fashion industry.

It was a year in the States, when Häagen-Dazs introduced salted caramel ice-cream, Starbucks selling salted caramel drinks, and Wal-Mart picking salted caramel in its store-brand chocolate box. The first perception of this French combination may be "quirky", but how alluring about it is it checks all perfect texture and taste boxes similar to devil chocolate.

Well, I'm just talking about salted caramel in general.

This cup of salted caramel cappuccino just reminds me the taste and warmness for winters, but of course we can't do the same in here. The syrup prepared on this drink is light, not too sticky, not too sweet (which is nice). A no-no to the cappuccino itself - which is too "milky" as a cap or latte.

All of sudden, I desperately wanted a bar of Snickers... I guess it goes well with skim cap with the same chemistry?
