Best Prata in Singapore: After Eating 72 Pratas!

mr and mrs mohgan roti prata shop2When I was young, my mother used to buy stacks of pratas on Sunday, and I would tear into them, still hot, with my hands. I could eat 4 or 5 at each time. For this entry, we ate at least 72 pratas, not counting our second and third visits to some stalls. A South Indian staple, dough is stretched, flipped, and panfried till it is crispy outside and fluffy inside. The curry must be loaded with spices.

There are too many flavors–durian, mushroom, cheese, etc–so we compared only the classic kosong (plain) and telor (egg), although we sometimes ordered additional flavors. While some stalls may give pratas already cooked for customers who tabao, we should get hot pratas made upon ordering since we were makan-ing there. The difference between pre-prepared and a la minute pratas is vast and palpable.  In ascending order:

  1. Ghim Moh egg prata is very good when eaten fresh off the stove (best time to order is when there is queue on weekend mornings since you are practically guaranteed to get the prata just made).

    I think there is another prata stall at ayer rajah (west coast drive) that is good. It’s not the one mentioned in your post tho.

  2. Try Ali Baba at eunos hawker center just beside eunos mrt. The stall is at the middle section, 1st stall near the walkway to mrt. The prata is always hot & the curry is nice & spicy. The dalca is my fav! Its a to-go place to enjoy my comfort food after work.

  8. Question: Did you put on weight while doing research for this article? Lol. Also. How long did it take you to try all these stalls and did you always finish the entire two pratas on your own?

  9. You can try the prata at Jin Biao Coffeeshop at Tampines Street 22, Block 280. It’s opposite Angsana Primary School (previously Griffith Primary School). Quiet and windy area with HDB car parks!

  10. Hi, the best prate for me will be at Bukit Gombak MRT station. There is an Indian store (sorry I forget the name but it is the only one there) at the hawker center beside the Prime Supermarket. The thick gravy is to die for with bits of mutton fats in it (you can request for it also if they have to add in your gravy). I always eat mine to go with the gravy poured in together with the prata and packed. When its time to eat it, the prata will be nicely drenched by the gravy. I hope you guys like it too.

  12. Hi, I applaud your effort and dedication. It’s not easy to do this as a hobby, much less sustain it over such a long period. To the naysayers out there with your strong words – please respect that this blog is a personal space and we’re the guests; it’s a privilege, not a right for us to read and comment on the articles.

  13. I live in Telok Blangah and have eaten #7 countless times. I am very surprised to see it so high in the rankings. It’s a decent to good prata depending on how early you go, but to be #7 on the list, means the prata “scene” is in trouble

    • Yikes. When i was there, i was the first customer and the guy made the prata on the spot. Very hot, crispy and fluffy. I almost scalded my fingers holding the metal plate. That might have influenced the score. Hot pratas taste infinitely better than cold ones.

  14. Pfft what would a manjan really know about Indian food? You don’t see an Indian/Malay giving ratings for Hokkien Mee do you? Coz we wouldn’t know the how it’s really supposed to be.

  15. The one at Chai Chee Street, it’s called Khan Sahab. They make very good pratas and offer 4 different types of curries – veg dhal, chicken curry, fish curry and mutton curry. One of the best i’ve had and it’s open 24 hours.

  16. Thanks for the hard work, effort & recommendation.

    Just went to #2 curry cafe, indeed it’s crispy and freshly cooked BUT. Their “pratas” are Instant prata and it is no where near the taste of actual flipped and flopped authentic prata. It’s so buttery I can’t even finish the entire prata (might be a plus for people who are SUPER BUTTER LOVERS) but trust me, for a butter lover like myself (I can have a cube of butter to a bun like those on SIA planes or breakfast buffet) I cant even take the overload-Ness of butter.

    I don’t think this should be part of this prata list, not to even mention being ranked #2 with a rating of 8.417/10.
    Because anyone can get it off shelf from the supermarkets with spam with butter at home.

    • Hello Sron. When I ate there, I thought their prata was factory dough so i asked them and they said yes. But it’s not those instant prata. It comes in a dough form, like a small fist. I saw it myself. People selling wanton mee don’t make their own noodles, so i see no reason why they should make their own dough. In any case, I think many prata stalls don’t make their own dough; most get from factory. If I exclude Curry Cafe because they don’t make their own dough, then I’ll have to exclude many shops on this list.

      As to the butteriness, I guess to each his own.

  17. A secret Gem in North East Singapore which no one recommends so far and everyone just says Jalan Kayu. Once you eat here Jalan Kayu is a thing of the past! I Highly recommend the kosong which is cripsy on the outside and soft on the inside, dip in curry and chilli… SHIOK!

  19. Should try KNS Indian Muslim Food @ 280 Tampines St 22.
    Only serves pratas for breakfast though.
    The pratas are light, crispy and not oily.
    Make sure to ask for a chilli to go with your curries. It gives an added kick if you enjoy your spicy foods.

  20. I suggest you do separate lists for north, east, south, west and central. From the comments, it seems there are many more prata places than the 36 you visited in compiling this list. :)

  29. Just read through the comments and people are just SO HARD TO SATISFY -_- Well done for saving us the calories (and prata has A LOT) and for compiling this list!

    That said, my boyfriend made me cycle from Marine Parade to #1 on the list and I was so sweaty/tired to enjoy it fully though I really did find it amazing still. He didn’t even know the list existed but that was his personal #1 so I guess there’s two more people who would agree with you now :)

  30. HI, just like to say that the Prata Planet at Clementi is actually very near to Clementi MRT station. Can actually see the block where the restaurant is from the Clementi MRT platform (towards Pasir Ris side). And, no, I am NOT from Prata Planet. I am just a regular customer who works in West Coast and knows her way around Clementi.

  31. If you get the chance to, do try the prata at Blk 19 Marsiling Lane…the coffeeshop facing the wet market carpark. It’s the best i tried to date (i have not try Mr & Mrs Mohgan though) & has the kind of dough taste i remembered from early 80s (i very much dislike casurina dough taste). There’s often a long queue in the morning…think they sold out around 11+. They make their own dough. Kosong is better than Egg, but egg is good too. There are a few choices of curry…can’t remembered which is the best.
    Am the can have prata everyday anytime person ;p…

  32. Did you know that Sin Min Roti Prata stall’s previous owner was Julaiha Muslim’s Restaurant’s? He already made it famous then. The praise/appreciation should go current Julaiha’s owner. It was his father and himself(julaiha’s owner) who made this happen. It all started with a wrong publicity (Lost and Found- once aired in channel 5) and the current owner (SinMin Roti Prata) falsely admitted that it was him they were looking for instead of sending them to Julaiha’s. Of course, many of Julaihai’s old customer’s know about this issue, and are still in touch! anyways.. these are just FYI!! :)

  34. Very good research, appreciate the time for doing this up, BUT, how can you miss out ENAQ?????????? Most likely the only prata place with sambal chilli, consistent crispiness, good curry, easy parking and the list goes on. Please go try!
