Once again, social media comes to our rescue when finding places to eat near our home for the weekend. After seeing several social media posting about the crispy prata from Master Prata, my wife and I made a trip down to Bukit Purmei to check it out.
Prata Kosong 3/5
It is understand that the stall owner still make his own dough, following the recipe that his dad who used to work in Jalan Kayu making pratas has passed down to him. Many has also raved that this is the Thasevi style crispy prata, bring back fond memories.
Egg Prata 3/5
I ordered both the Kosong Prata ($1/pc) and Egg Prata ($1.70/pc) to try. I supported the review that the kosong prata is indeed very crispy. It exterior of the pan fried dough simply shattered when u tried to tear it apart with a slightly fluffy interior dough. Saying that, while my wife and I enjoyed the crispy texture, we did not like the strong margarine taste that comes with the prata.
A bonus at Master Prata is the choice of chicken, mutton and fish curry to go with their prata. Among the trio we tried, we preferred the fish curry more than the rest. We also felt that the chicken curry was sort of powdery which was quite unpleasant for the palate.
By the way, there is another prata place at Alexandra which is also called Master Prata. Do note that they are not affiliate to the stall at block 109 Bukit Purmei.
