Tissues and Papers

I must confess I have a soft spot for crispy snacks. My father calls it “HEONG HAO” food in Cantonese which means food that is fragrantly appealing and irresistible to the mouth. That could be the reason why businesses with this “recipe” are in the money.

Last Saturday, my wife and I were happily walking around Clementi, looking for breakfast that would whet our appetite and energize us to start the weekend on a bright note.

We were drawn to a shop hustling and bustling with people and activities. We have learned to take cues from long queues. Be always curious and inquisitive and never ignore them. Something good is definitely brewing in the pot so they say.

We were not disappointed. We found that we have a new prata shop in the neighborhood. The menus may not be new but hey, we now have another food outlet option. Moreover, the meals are sumptuous and reasonably priced . It is value for money.

I am not particularly keen on traditional pratas but I could not resist the paper versions; tissue prata and paper tosai. They are so thin and crispy they just melt in the mouth. I literally wiped clean all the 4 kinds of sauces which they serve in generous portions. A piping hot the halia (ginger tea) complimented the meal

People love prada but I love my prata!

Lol I second the notion of prata over Prada any day! Practicality vs luxury, the former wins hands down.
