Sin Ming Roti Prata – Probably the Best Roti Prata in Singapore
We’ve tried many of the “Famous” roti prata places around Singapore, from Jalan Kayu to Tampines, and a few others that used to be the talk of the town. However, with their slipping standards and quality, we are reluctant to even share our review here. It’ll be a pity to see these once-greats fall from glory. Hopefully they can still manage to turn things around in time!
But one bright spot that has tenaciously held on in terms of quality is Sin Ming Roti Prata – and are we ever grateful for them!
We are partial to the regular prata and egg prata whenever we visit a prata place, even though a myriad of options are usually available, as we like to savor the taste of the prata unencumbered by any superfluous flavors. A truly good prata really doesn’t require any toppings, in our opinion! And indeed we are truly impressed by the flavourful and fantastic texture of the prata here, as the prata was fluffy, chewy and crispy on the outside – we often just went without dunking it into the curry. We love the fragrance of the buttery sweet taste from the dough and frankly, we jucan’t find any other roti prata that’s able to meet the standard of Sin Ming’s prata.
A standard order of roti prata usually comes with fish or chicken curry, and here, the gravy is thick and savory, and there’s no other phrase to describe the curry other than “Damn Shiok”. We ordered an extra serving of mutton curry so that we could savor it on its own. The mutton was tender and cooked to the perfection, and paired with the prata, truly made our weekend.
The dough here is handmade – and it really shows. Factory-made dough, though time-efficient, really just cannot compare. We do hope more purveyors of prata will uphold their handmade traditions!
We left the place with deep sighs of satisfaction, and want to share the word with everyone else who have not yet heard of their renown, and encourage everyone to go support the great work they’re doing! Let’s vote with our stomachs, and pray that they don’t take the route that many other once-greats seem to be going down on… Protect our precious prata places!
