Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s Super Crispy Roti Prata Review
Note: This review was written based on the original Crane Road location. Mr & Mrs Mohgan have since relocated to Joo Chiat (address below).
Mr & Mrs Mohgan’s Super Crispy Roti Prata has been named one of the best prata in Singapore by many of rave reviews. It is what lured us to this coffee shop to get a taste how good it is. The coffeeshop was a little congested with almost back to back sitting. Four of us waited for more than 40 minutes for our plain prata and egg prata.
Other flavours on the menu include the onion ($1.30), mushroom ($1.8) and cheese ($1.8) prata.

The prata comes served with Dhalcha or fish curry sauce. We came with empty stomachs in the morning and they were growling desperately with the need for pacification from the long wait.
We came with high expectations but after tucking in, the four of us were mulled over the meal and started looking at the different stalls. Perhaps it was a different stall selling the much hyped prata. Obviously something was missing: Although the crispiness was acceptable, fluffiness was not in the equation of its thin layers of folds and the prata’s aroma was not exceptionally impressive. The only consolation was probably the light and non-greasy texture.
Even Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s curry fish sauce was ultimately a mediocre with its watery, diluted and insipid taste. Is it the standard or our bad luck for that day? Whatever it was, isn’t a consistency in quality something to be expected in a well-endorsed prata stall?
Crispiness is not everything for a good prata, the fragrance; texture and dipping curry sauce in combination have to complement each other. Solely relying on crispness alone to impress may not be adequate in our opinion.
Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s mutton curry ($3)
Unable to find the satisfaction with the prata and curry, we ordered an additional mutton curry which was better than the fish curry but nothing too great to highlight here.
Unfortunately after tasting most of the famous roti prata stalls and shops in Singapore, we did not share the same sentiments regarding Mr and Mrs Mohgan Super Crispy Roti Prata.
However, we have to agree that taste is subjective and a bog-standard prata could be the gem in other’s eyes which we fully respect.
Durian is nice but not everyone loves it.
