House-sitting for Pops at Upper Thomson means that we get to indulge in prata a lot. This is because Upper Thomson is known for its many famous prata shops peppering the long stretch of road that used to be a race-track.
The Roti Prata House is one of those 24-hour joints that some would remember hitting after clubbing for some late night/early morning sustenance.
We ordered my favourite Egg Prata ($1.30 for 1), fluffy on the inside, slightly crispy on the outside, and thoroughly satisfying. The curry was slightly spicier than the Casuarina Curry version, but still not enough kick.
The Curry Chicken ($3.50) was a generous portion of tender succulent chicken. Thick, creamy and subtly spiced, but I would have preferred a spicier concoction.
I really liked the Crispy Chicken ($3.50), Indian-style, deep-fried till crispy with the signature bright orange hue. The chicken thigh was still juicy on the inside. This was really quite addictive.
