Laughter is the best medicine? I beg to differ, seeing how prata is just one step away from saving the entire world. – Roti John
Now, while I hate to agree with Roti Johns in general (unless I’m eating them), I have to agree with him on this point.
Prata really is extraordinary.
Just look at it; all that crispy, doughy goodness just begging for you to give it a nice, sexy curry bath.
Thereafter, it practically pleads for you to give it a taste, whereby you will experience a savoury sensation of crisp, spice and dough with every single bite.
But there’s just one tiny little drawback (like everything nice in life):
Prata isn’t exactly diet food material.
As such, you’ll surely want to get your value’s worth, and enjoy your prata wholeheartedly without the constant thought of “I’m blowing up my day’s calorie intake for this piece of shit?”
Yeah, we totally get it.
As a result, we have a compiled a list of 10 Best Prata Places in Singapore for your perusal
And we hope that in doing so, you’ll never have to entertain another crudely-done prata. Ever again.
(Though if you think about it, even Lionel Messi has his bad days. Just saying.)
Note: the places are not ranked in any particular order. This is to prevent any cat fights in the comment section which although thoroughly entertaining, don’t really appeal to us because we’re a peace-loving group.
1. Springleaf Prata Place
This is a no-brainer, really; in fact, it’ll be a sin not to include Springleaf Prata Place on this list, seeing how it has effectively ensnared Singaporeans of all ages.
Apart from serving one of the best plain pratas in Singapore (crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, the two primary criteria for a perfect prata)…
They also offer an exceptionally elongated, rectangular version of the conventionally circular Egg Prata.
Gee, that sure is one gigantic egg prata right there.
Yet, despite all that, what really stole the hearts (and stomachs) of Singaporeans is the sheer innovation and creativity (innovativity, as I like to call it) of the crew.
Really, how did they ever think up the Plaster Blaster?
And let’s not even talk about the Umami 50 Prata.
And though the Umami 50 Prata has since been relegated from its menu, you can kind of tell just how ingenious Springleaf is, at creating appetising and tantalising fare for its consumers.
Really, it’s no wonder Springleaf is a mandatory selection on most individuals’ prata recommendation lists.
Springleaf Prata Place (Thomson): No.1 Thong Soon Ave, Singapore 787431 | Monday to Sunday 08:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m.
Springleaf Prata Place (Railmall): 396 Upper Bukit Timah Rd, Singapore 678048 | Monday to Sunday 08:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m.
Waiting with bated breath for the next rendition. Salted egg prata cake maybe?
Honestly, I came here just once before.
And I reckon it speaks volumes when your virgin trip guarantees it a place on such a prestigious list.
Well, how do I start? For one, their plain prata, as mandatory of any place on this list, is just about impeccable.
Cooked to a crisp with just the right amount of fluffiness, it’s an automatic winner as far as prata is concerned.
Just look at the aesthetics of that dough.
Additionally, for the more unconventional consumers out there, you can try out their Prata Bomb and Peanut Butter Prata (pictured below).
And oh, did I mention that you can customise your own pratas there?
Say hi to that cheesy chocolate, peanut butter and egg prata you’ve always craved for, babe!
However, one of my colleagues tried having five pratas there, and he had a phobia of prata for at least two months. I think it’s his stupidity that led to the phobia but it’s still good to know that even if it’s good, too much of goodness can turn into badness.
Address: 303 Jurong East Street 32, 600303 (this is the recommended outlet)
Opening hours: 07:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Address: Blk 21, Ghim Moh Road, Singapore 270021
Opening Hours: 8am to 8pm daily. Closed every last Tuesday of the month.
RK Eating House
It’s funny how my first memory of RK Eating House wasn’t that of its crispy, fluffy pratas, but one of an audio prank.
So apparently, this guy went to RK Eating House and insisted on ordering everything with pork, this despite the place being a well-known Halal site. What ensued was a string of hilarious and (mostly) vulgar exchanges.
You can watch it here (do not click if you can’t take vulgarities, or you’re twelve and your parents are watching you):
And then a couple of years later, my whole impression of this prata place changed.
What do you know; it’s not just a prank site, but actually a place serving up great prata!
I’m not a prata-nizer, but damn if I will slap that piece of fine dough. – Gordon Ramsay
And of course, the humongous Milo Tower (that’s available for order) doesn’t hurt RK’s claim on this list.
Alongside the indomitable Tissue Prata… Tower.
Our recommendation? Next time you’re craving for some towers, just come here. It’ll be way cheaper, and if you do get intoxicated, at least it’ll be on sugar.
Address: 1 Kensington Park Rd, Singapore 557253
Open 24 hours daily
The Roti Prata House
With such a grandiose sounding name, you wouldn’t really expect it to be your average, run-off-the-mill coffeeshop prata stall.
And in that aspect, it certainly doesn’t disappoint.
Dishing up crispy, flaky prata that teases you from the very first bite, TRPH (The Roti Prata House) is serious in living up to its name.
Fluffy in the right places, its pratas aren’t just a visual feast, but a taste bud feast as well.
What a tease.
Also, TRPH prides itself on its ginormous prata selection, which stretches from the delectable Bomb Cheese Prata to the questionable-sounding Fruit Cheese Prata. There’s even a Milo Cheese Prata on the menu for those unsatisfied with their uncheesy Milo Dinosaurs…
And a Durian Prata for the Mao Shan Wang addicts.
So if you’re wondering whether The Roti Prata House is deserving of its name…
I’m pretty sure it does.
Address: 246 Upper Thomson Rd, Singapore 574370
Opening hours: Sunday to Thursday: 07:00 a.m. to 02:00 a.m. Friday to Saturday: 07:00 a.m. to 04:00 a.m.
Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s Super Crispy Roti Prata
If there was ever a real-life Mr and Mrs Smith in the local prata industry, it would be these two. And I’m not even jesting.
Having made prata for more than 30 years, Mr Mohgan is a real professional in this field, making his own dough, cooking the curry and flipping the prata all by himself. The result?
Moderately thick and pan fried till an aesthetic brown, the prata here are fresh and, true to the stall’s moniker, super crispy.
Truly, it’s one place you definitely have to try, especially if you’re calling yourself a prata fanatic.
Alas, this prata place isn’t one for the late risers, as it’s open for a morning-limited period of time. But hey, if you’re asking me to sacrifice some beauty sleep for it…
It’s well worth it.
Address: 7 Crane Rd, Singapore 429356
Friday to Tuesday 06:30 a.m. – 01:00 p.m. Closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays
Sin Ming Roti Prata
Do not be fooled by the banal name of the stall (no offence to all the Sin Mings out there). Because whoever this Sin Ming guy is…
He’s awesome. In the prata field anyway.
See, often you will get a prata that’s crispy but overly oily, soft yet overly doughy, or even fragrant but overly savoury. Which might be good and all for those living on the edge, but being an average Singaporean guy I like mine done just nicely, you know.
And luckily for me, Sin Ming is just the right guy, judging by how delectable and consistent his pratas are.
There’s no over in Sin Ming’s vocabulary. Everything’s just the right consistency, right flavour and heck, even right texture.
But don’t get overly excited just yet, because I haven’t touched on the main show.
It’s coin pratas.
Really, if there was ever a physical representation of the phrase ‘Crisp Bliss‘, it’s this.
Address: #01-51, Jin Fa Kopitiam, 24 Sin Ming Rd, Singapore 570024
Monday to Sunday 07:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
P.s. alright so apparently the stall (also known as Faisal and Aziz Curry Muslim Food) is run by brothers and third-generation hawkers Almalic Faisal and Mohamed Dufail.
The name is supposedly derived from the stall’s location, which means that sadly there’s no Sin Ming in the picture.
But hey, you never know; I will still be keeping an eye out for the Sin Mings out there because they might just turn out to be low key prata geniuses.
Rahmath Cheese Prata
Rahmath Cheese Prata? You gotta try it; its cheese prata is goddamn amazing. – Captain Obvious
If that’s what you thought too, hold up; apparently, some have actually rated Rahmath’s plain & egg pratas higher than their cheese counterpart!
But before you jump to conclusions (it’s called Rahmath Cheese Stall and cheese isn’t even its best dish?), just know that its cheese prata is amazing.
The melted cheese complements the prata to a T. Dip it in mutton curry and you pretty much got the holy trinity of taste buds in your hands (or in this case, your fork).
So where does that leave the plain & egg pratas?
Downright awesome, of course.
Aromatic, fluffy and vulnerable, these pratas are easy to dig in, and pleasing on the tongue.
You know; I never ever thought that I’ll be satisfied by a prata stall located in the corner of a hawker centre…
But I guess you learn new things every day.
Address: 74 Lorong 4 Toa Payoh, Singapore 310074
Tuesday to Sunday 06:00 a.m. to 01:30 p.m. Closed on Mondays
Located near the Lower Pierce Reservoir, Casuarina Curry goers may actually stumble upon monkeys ‘monkeying’ around the reservoir’s perimeter.
Which have certainly made for a riveting sight, had there not been an even more delectable option in place.
Fragrant and seductive, the Plain Prata boasts a crispy and cushiony texture which will surely make you go for more.
Its Egg counterpart doesn’t disappoint either, with an abnormally large height & breadth (we’re not complaining), alongside tantalising crispy edges.
It’s reasonably cheap as well. A plain prata goes for just $1 (considerably rare nowadays), and for a meagre 2 bucks, you get to enjoy a satisfying meal with aromatic curry. Ananas who?
While you’re at it, go for their Mushroom Cheese Prata too.
Having captivated many unsuspecting Prata enthusiasts, this signature dish is fluffy and soft, breaking apart to reveal sumptuous portions of succulent cheesy mushrooms.
Have a sweet tooth? Check out their unconventional Chocolate Prata.
Shaped like a crudely designed bridge, it’s soft, flaky and most importantly, sweet.
Casuarina Curry this weekend, anyone?
Address: 138 Casuarina Rd, Singapore 579526
Opening Hours: Monday to Sunday 7:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.
Love a wide selection of pratas, as well as gooey, melty cheese? If you do, Al Azhar is your man (stall).
Boasting an extensive menu, this bustling prata place (especially in the wee hours) has something for everyone.
Just look at that cheese…!
And its prices are reasonable too. You can get a Plain Prata at $1.10, and an Egg Prata at $1.80. Not a bad deal at all.
Plus, it operates 24 hours, so you can have your cravings fixed anytime of the day. Heard that, night owls? 😉
Address: 11 Cheong Chin Nam Rd, 599736
Open 24 hours daily
Thasevi Food – Famous Jalan Kayu Prata Restaurant
Yeah, I know; hardly the most humble signboard for a reputable prata place, isn’t it? But then again, as a humble dude once said:
It’s arrogance when one boasts about itself without actually possessing the necessary skill set. It’s confidence, however, when one boasts about itself with actual skills backing it up. – Steven Lim
Thankfully for the Singaporean population, Thasevi belongs to the latter.
And what a place it is.
Dishing up fantastic fare through the wee hours of the night (like Al Azhar, it’s open 24 hours), the place attracts visitors from all four parts of the Lion City. And after sampling its crisp, saucer-sized Plain Prata, one can’t help but understand why.
Crispy and fluffy in equal measures, it’s a tantalising sensation with every bite. And that’s just the Plain Prata, for Roti John’s sake.
Incidentally, check out their famous Paper Prata ($1.80).
Boasting extreme crispiness, their Paper Prata is one paper-thin mouthful you will want to experience.
While you’re there, do note that there are about six million prata stalls there (I heard they’re changing the street from Jalan Kayu to Makan Prata). Make sure you find the correct one.
Address: 237 239 Jln Kayu, Singapore 799461/3
Open 24 hours daily
Fancy some prata after a night of hard partying at Zouk? Spize’s the place to go to
Located within walking distance of the club, the prata here looks great and tastes great.
Address: 409 River Valley Rd, 248307
Opening Hours: Sunday to Thursday 11:00 a.m. to 05:00 a.m. Friday to Saturday 12:00 p.m. to 06:00 a.m.
Julaiha Muslim Restaurant
Apart from delightful prata fare (including cheese prata that could just give Rahmath a run for its money), the servers are also friendly peeps and make sure you’re well looked after.
Also, the prata connoisseur’s situated in a relatively open space, so you can pretty much enjoy a free prata flipping show while waiting for your orders.
Address: 538 MacPherson Rd, Singapore 368222
Opening hours: 24 hours daily
Enjoy a quiet meal with friends and family at this quaint place located just minutes away from Clementi train station.
Crispy and non-excessively oily, the pratas go well with the hot piquant curry sauce and guarantee you a doughy, spicy taste with every bite.
Address: 320 Clementi Ave 4, Singapore 120320
Opening Hours: Monday to Sunday 07:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Niqqi’s – The Cheese Prata Shop
Like Rahmath, Niqqi prides itself on its cheese pratas. And what a good job it does with them.
While the usual suspects, Plain and Egg, are pretty good, a good bet is their Egg & Cheese Prata.
Though I would highly recommend the Double Cheese Prata because go big or go home right?
Address: 18 Clementi Rd, Singapore 129747
Open 24 hours daily
And last but not least, the one you went to for the last 50 years
Let’s face it; that stall you’ve been frequenting doesn’t exactly serve the most phenomenal pratas.
The Plain Prata‘s slightly burnt and over doughy; the Egg Prata is fluffy in all the wrong places, and the egg seems to have convened in one particular corner; you reckon if you put in the effort, you can produce better curry than the one they give.
Yet at the same time, you’ve patronised the stall so often you’re on first name terms with the assistant. It got to a point where he will crack a wide-toothed smile upon seeing you, every single time. Without fail.
In response you smile back, hoping that in doing so he will subconsciously slip in an extra prata. Which of course doesn’t happen because life doesn’t quite roll that way.
End note? Admittedly, their pratas might not be the best, in the sense that they are rather… flawed. But just like your girlfriend/boyfriend…
You’ve grown to love the prata for what it is, rather than what it could be.
So appreciate your pratas while you can, people, no matter the source. After all…
Prata does make the world a better place. – The Prata stall you’ve been frequenting for the last 50 years
And there you have it folks; the 10 Best Prata Stalls in Singapore to ensure some whipping good prata time.
So jio all your prata kakis, and get ready for some serial prata hopping!
