11 Controversial Pratas All Singaporeans Have to Try At Least Once in Their Life

Last Updated: January 10, 2018

Written by Weiyu Lim

I’ve gathered a list of crazy concoctions of Pratas all over Singapore, because really why not.The wonderful floury ecstasy that is Prata has graced our lives for decades now, and they are everywhere in Singapore. Consumable for all three meals and readily available throughout the day, I’d say Prata has played a pretty significant part in our lives.

The evolution of Prata has been steadily expanding and following up from our previous Prata Encyclopedia article, we’re now more familiar than ever with several of its variations – Coin Prata, Paper Prata, Tissue Prata, Prata Bomb, etc.

The new age Pratas are here and these evolutions are taking our world by storm, of which I really feel compelled to collect them in a list and let you guys know about it because interesting. After an intense Prata-searching journey, here’s a list of Pratas I highly recommend all Singaporeans to try at least once in their lives.

1. Traditional Chicken Satay Prata

This Traditional Chicken Satay Prata Wrap ($9) from Big Street has barbecued chicken drenched in loads and loads of satay sauce. I’m normally not a huge fan of satay sauce, but I found their sauce quite irresistible, on top of the barbecued chicken chunks of course.

It’s sweet, salty, crunchy and even has a spicy kick, I might add. This is a personal favourite on the list.

2. Plaster Blaster

Springleaf Prata Place is extremely famous for this innovation, the Plaster Blaster ($5), or the Prata Benedict. It’s essentially Eggs Benedict preciously placed on top of not one but two slices of ham and laden with Hollandaise Sauce.

I think it was the Hollandaise Sauce that brought out the most flavours – tangy and refreshing. The Prata itself was crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside as well, so that’s just perfect.

3. Salted Caramel Apple Prata

The Salted Caramel Apple Prata ($4.20) feels like a mini Christmas party in your mouth and belly. With accents of cinnamon and nutmeg blended in with soft thinly-sliced apples, this Prata resounds Christmas jingles in my head.

Instead of normal Prata, crispy thin Tissue Prata hugged this apple deliciousness. The salted caramel was thick, smooth, and went really well with the lightness of the vanilla ice cream. Considering how many components went into this Prata dish, it’s super value-for-money.

4. Italian Prata

The Italian Prata ($9.50) managed to confuse me because I kept thinking it was pizza, obviously. The Prata dough is thicker than usual, had herby flavours and was filled with ingredients that one would normally see on an Italian pizza.

Stuffed with chicken ham, mushrooms, capsicum, pineapple, onions, chilli flakes, and mozzarella cheese, there’s a lot going on in this one. See? It’s a Pizza, but in the wonderful form of Prata.

5. Red Bean Prata

11 Controversial Pratas All Singaporeans Have to Try At Least Once in Their Life Red Bean Prata

The Red Bean Prata ($3), is the Prata interpretation of Dorayaki (Japanese Red Bean Pancake) or the Chinese Dou Sha Bing. They fry the Prata till it’s crispy like Dou Sha Bing. 

Albeit a tad too dry, I quite enjoyed it. The red bean paste was sweet, thick and rich, and went really well with crispy Prata skin. You might want to share it with a fellow red-bean-paste-lover though because it comes in quite a large portion.

6. French Prata

The French Prata ($6.20) is a dessert Prata stuffed with soft caramelised bananas, slathered with Nutella spread and topped off with Old Vanilla Ice cream.

It really spoke to the child in me. If this Prata were a suspicious man trying to get me into his equally suspicious van, I would follow him blindly because this Prata is way too enchanting.

7. Umami 50 Prata

The Umami 50 Prata ($8), one of the many Prata innovations from Springleaf Prata Place was really umami. With a crispy Prata layer, what laid inside was a combination of chicken luncheon meat, chicken floss, Japanese mayonnaise and Mozzarella cheese. A delicious savoury Prata to check out.

8. Cheese Sausage Prata

11 Controversial Pratas All Singaporeans Have to Try At Least Once in Their Life Cheese Sausage Prata

Yes, I know the name Cheese Sausage Prata ($4.10) might mislead you into thinking that it’s cheese sausage in a Prata. If it didn’t fool you, well, it fooled me. Still, despite being sausage and cheese instead of a cheese sausage, this Prata did not disappoint.

With stringy mozzarella cheese, chicken sausage and the unexpected element of an egg, this was a nice savoury delight that goes really well with their famous Casuarina curry.

Opening Hours: Mon – Sun: 07:00am – 12:00am

9. Portobello Mozzarella Prata

Portobello Mushroom Cheese Prata-9559

The most prominent flavour I detected from the Portobello Mozzarella ($5) was, weirdly, the Prata itself. The elements of this Prata brought out surprisingly nice light flavours.

Unlike the usual button mushrooms used in conventional Mushroom Pratas, the Portobello mushrooms are fresher and much earthier in flavour. The Mozzarella, less pungent than most cheeses, was a welcome stringy delight as well.

10. Chilli Crab Prata

11 Controversial Pratas All Singaporeans Have to Try At Least Once in Their Life Chilli Crab Prata

Another noteworthy Prata from Big Street is the Chunky Crab Meat Prata Wrap ($12) that comes with thick, juicy chunks of crab meat and sauce. Rich semi-thick garlic and chilli sauce, mmhm. Although a little less spicy than I had anticipated, it was still so damn good. I just wished it had more Prata to go with the leftover sauce.

Opening Hours: Tue – Sat: 11:00am – 03:00am | Sun – Mon: Closed

11. Murtaburger

11 Controversial Pratas All Singaporeans Have to Try At Least Once in Their Life Murtaburger

Okay, so Murtabak isn’t traditionally a Prata, but oh come on, it still utilises Prata to make! So yes, this IS going on my list because it’s not just any Murtabak, it’s its mutated cousin, the MURTABURGER ($7).

Oozing with a copious amount of cheesy goodness, this Murtaburger strangely reminded me of the famous Ramli Burger. With lamb patties, mayonnaise, chilli sauce, pepper sauce and egg, it’s quite aptly named, don’t you think?
