Enter Prata Lahhh!, a hip hawker stall in Hougang that lets you do just that. It prides itself as Singapore’s first DIY prata concept, which involves a fairly simple ordering process.
Firstly, choose a base (prata, thosai, or goreng), and then your desired fillings from a list of ingredients that go beyond the standard Onion (S$0.80), Cheese (S$1.80), and Egg (S$0.80). That’s right — feel free to load up on Prawn (S$3), Mutton or Chicken Keema (S$2), Sardine Sambal (S$2), or even Crab (S$3) if you’re feelin’ fancy.
Afterwards, opt for ala-carte sides, if you’d like, and choose between chicken, mutton or fish curry, or dhal.
Not feeling creative? Simply stick to Prata Classics with the usual Egg (S$2.30), Onion (S$2.30), and Cheese (S$3), as well as Thosai (from S$2), Biryani Sets (from S$6.50), and stir-fried, or Goreng dishes.
However, you should definitely check out the Chef’s Innovation menu, which features inventive creations like the Egg’s Benedict (S$5).
Instead of hollandaise sauce, turkey ham is wrapped in prata, topped with shredded cheese, curry, and a perfectly poached egg, runny yolk and all. Slurp!
The Bull’s eye (S$4.50) is, simply put, prata fried with two sunny side up eggs, kinda like the signature roti sarang burung you can find at viral Johor Bahru breakfast spot Dapo’ Khaleeda. Order it if you enjoy the messy yet oh-so good combination of crispy dough and silky eggs!
If you’re seeking something even heartier, the Murtabak (S$7), which come with fillings like chicken, mutton, sardine, beef, or just vegetables, is always reliable.
So, regardless of whether you prefer to play it safe or go all out and experiment, you’re in for a fun (and filling) time at Prata Lahhh!
