Crispy prata places around Singapore
Prata is one of those classics that can capture the hearts of both young and old. I used to frequent prata shops for supper after having a long day at school, especially after projects or CCA practices. Nothing feels more rewarding than to treat yourself with a plate of piping hot and crispy prata. If you have a soft spot for crispy prata, we have rounded off 10 different spots for crispy prata for you to enjoy with your friends.
1. Sin Ming Roti Prata

If you stay in the Central area you would have probably either tried or heard of Sin Ming Roti Prata. They offer a variety of sweet and savoury prata such as banana prata, strawberry prata, mushroom cheese prata, and sardine prata, and their best-seller would be their Coin Prata ($4) which comes in six pieces. The exterior is perfectly crisped and it has a fluffy centre. Pairing it up with sugar will bring the dish to another level. There’s prata for everyone to choose from and do note that their curry has a spicy kick to it.

2. Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s Super Crispy Roti Prata
Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s Super Crispy Roti Prata is a prata place run by a couple in the middle of Joo Chiat. Expect long queues when you drop by. Their Crispy Kosong Prata ($0.90) lives up to its name. Despite being really crispy, it surprisingly retains a soft and fluffy interior so you’ll get the best of both worlds. You might also want to try their Cheese Prata ($1.70) or Egg Prata ($1.40) for more variety in your meal.

A hidden gem would be Crispy Roti Prata. Tucked away in a coffeeshop called Ubi 350, satisfy your craving with their Plain Prata ($0.80) that delivers a crispy and buttery exterior. Eat this with sugar if you have a sweet tooth like me. For those who prefer savoury dishes, get their Cheese Prata ($1.50) or Egg Cheese Prata ($2) – cheese never disappoints.

Served piping hot, the thick and dense prata has a good good balance of crispiness and fluffiness.Each plate is served with sambal chilli and fish curry.
