I am sure everyone has significant milestones in our own gastronomic journey. One of mine was my “baptism of fire” into Indian cuisine at the age of 13! Growing up in a Chinese family who seldom eat spicy food, I was caught unawares when my new secondary one friend invited me to his home for […]
This year, he came up with the Alfredo, which is a murtabak filled with rosemary roasted chicken which he cooks in the tandoor, portabello mushrooms, white sauce and mozzarella cheese. The flavours are closer to what you would find at an Italian restaurant than what I expected.

Master prata is run by a young man who father used to make pratas at Jalan Kayu. He inherited the crispy prata recipe from his father and still persists in making his own dough in order to preserve his father's recipe.

Oh, I do love the American breakfast, wanton mee, black carrot cake, kaya toast and nasi lemak for breakfast too, but somehow, roti prata is just extra special. It […]
Victory Murtabak: 103 years and still going strong!
Murtabak is one just one of those dishes that never fails to excite. From the theatrics of the flipping the dough to the bubbling anticipation that builds while the flatbread is sizzling away on the griddle, there is very little not to like about Murtabak, except for what it does to your cholesterol levels! Like […]
The upcoming Ultimate Hawker Fest has given many hawkers the opportunity to dream. Many hawkers, like Gunalan from The Prata Place have visions of the ultimate version of their specialty dishes but are usually hampered by the need to keep prices at a level which they think their customers are willing to pay. But with […]
