My third installment of prata places in Jalan Kayu, this is the last one. Again, it's located in the same block, all in very close proximity to each other. This is probably the quietest of the three, so if you're looking for more peace, then come here. The kitchen is actually downstairs, i think. They have a little mini elevator that brings the food up.
Location: 257 Jalan Kayu
Opening Hours: Daily 10am-1am
NOTE - This is NOT a 100% vegetarian eatery! However, they have a suitable range of vegetarian food that you can choose from. But for those who wish only to eat in 100% vegetarian places, don't go here.
If you're wondering why i'm always only reviewing dosai and prata, it's due to these being the only vegetarian options on the menu! This Masala Dosai is quite pricey, but the quality is pretty decent! It's crisp, yet soft and highly enjoyable to eat! The quantity of masala is generous, however, i sensed that this masala was far from fresh, it was very soggy, and tasting...Old. Most likely they made it in the morning, and seen as though we went at night, this may explain it. But no excuses, it definitely lets this dosai down.
Price: $3.00. 7/10
In Jalan Kayu, this may well be the most impressive Plain Prata. It's is not flat, and is well layered. Crispy, yet chewy, just how a plain prata should be! Usually a poor plain prata will be flat and have no body to it, this one thankfully is not like that! Still a little small, but definitely order this!
Price: $0.90. 8/10
This Cheese Prata is large in size, but unfortunately is lacking in many other traits. Firstly, it seems almost like there is a rawness about it, although it's probably not under cooked, it just seems like it needs to be charred more. Although the price is very reasonable (cheaper than all others in Jalan Kayu) the cheese is very little. Just one small square of cheese is what is inside, so price wise there is probably no saving logistically.
Price: $2.00. 3/10
Conclusion - Again, like with most prata shops, the pratas all vary, and you tend to get a mixture of pro's and con's. This place does have a fantastic plain prata, yet the cheese prata was severely underwhelming. In Jalan Kayu there is certainly not one definitive prata shop that sells the best everything. They all tend to claim success for different types of prata. If i had to pick a favourite, it probably would be the highly popular Thohirah.
