And oh boy, there was a long, long queue for these famous crispy roti pratas from Mr and Mrs Mohgan's. "Please be patient as there is a one-hour waiting time," Mrs Mohgan's remarked as she asked for my order and then wrote it into her order book. Interestingly, the coffeeshop was filled with patient patrons who were willing to wait an hour for the famed roti pratas. The neighbouring fried carrot cake was fortunate enough to catch the spillover crowd; many of which decided to order a side portion of the carrot cake while waiting for their pratas.
As the order was ready, Mrs Mohgan would walk to the middle of the coffeeshop. She would shout "Order Ninety-Five. Order Ninety-Five!" The customer would then walk over to pick his order. That was the simple system. And of course, there would be a consistent queue formed, by customers who have travelled all across Singapore for a taste of this crispy prata.
The hour passed rather quickly, and soon Mrs Mohgan shouted out "Order One O Five!" That was my order. I was excited to try the pratas to see what the fuss (and fame) was all about. I ordered 1 x plain Prata and 1 x plaster prata. The plain prata was extremely crispy and gave a crispy crunch when I bit into it. The accompanying mutton and fish curry went well with the Prata, although I would have preferred the fish curry to be sourer (more tamarind?). For the plaster prata, it was naturally not as crispy as the plain prata, but the edges still retained some of the crispiness. All in all, it was a good outing.
If you are looking to try Mr and Mrs Mohgan's Super Crispy Pratas, remember to check their short opening hours, and do come early, as they have a tendency to close earlier than the closing times (when the dough runs out).
