Thoughts after eating: Average tasting roti pratas and expensive drinks

Value for money: 58/100

Will I come back again in 6 months’ time? No, there are better alternatives

My opinion:

This stall is very famous in Singapore for their 24 hour roti prata meals. For this review I have tried their banana roti prata and mushroom prata for $4.20. In addition, I also ordered a cup of longan drink for $2.50.

Roti pratas: The two roti pratas are average tasting, warm and lacked fragrance. Prata skin was rough and did not mix well with the banana slices and mushrooms. Curry was salty and had a mild assam taste.

Longan drink: This longan drink was the most expensive that I have ever tasted. After I finished this drink, it was 70 percent filled with ice cubes. In fact, the huge amount of “icebergs” prevented my spoon from reaching the 6 miserly longans.

In a nutshell, the food here was average tasting and expensive. Honestly, there are just too many good roti prata alternatives in nearby coffee shops, hawker centres and restaurants for me to visit them again.

Ways for the owners to improve their food ratings:

First, they should decrease the amount of salt in the curry preparation process. Second, the amount of ice cubes in their drinks should be greatly decreased. Third, the price of their food items are quite costly compared to their coffee shop rivals. If the owners want more business or fans, they should consider carrying out more promotional sales.
