Now people residing in the West can also get to enjoy the famous Jalan Kayu pratas without having to travel halfway across Singapore. I don’t know how authentic the Jalan Kayu Prata Cafe is, but it does serve its purpose of providing tasty Indian food to the residents in the area.
It is a prata place, so naturally the first thing I tried are the pratas. I ordered my usual: 1 Mushroom & Cheese Prata + 1 Egg Prata + 2 Plain Prata (minimum order for plain prata is 2). I asked for both chicken and fish curry.
Ironically, I prefer the plain pratas to the ones with fillings. Egg Prata and Mushroom & Cheese Prata is about the same everywhere. The plain pratas, on the other hand, are a little crispy on the outside but chewy on the inside.
I prefer the chicken curry to the fish curry. I find the texture and taste of the chicken just right, but I find the spices in the fish curry a little too overwhelming. Well, at least they are consistent in their taste.
They may not have the best pratas, but it’s location and economical prices will have many people returning time and again. The fact that there is NO GST and NO SERVICE CHARGE helps too.
Then again, I think it is almost impossible to determine the best prata, because everyone has their own preference. How do you like your prata and which place serves the best prata in your opinion? Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
