The Ultimate Murtabak

$12.00 · 13 Reviews

Introduced as a mainstay on the menu following some aware during the Hawkerfest 2017? It’s essentially eggs benny on top of prata, drizzled with a blanket of hollandaise which was too mayo-ish. The pale yellow hint of the hollandaise was a big giveaway to the authenticity of hollandaise sauce. It didn’t help that the ham was supermarket-ready (& possibly from a housebrand) as well. For $5.50, there shouldn’t be much complaints nor expectations for higher grades of ham but the hollandaise was kinda unacceptable?! Not sure why this even made it into the hawkerfest list. The only saving grace was a runny yolk in the well poached egg. Tho unfortunately didn’t integrate well into the prata cos it’s crispy and doesn’t soak up the yolk. Never trying this again! Let pratas be pratas and bennies be bennies please!

Really aromatic tandoori chicken with that slight tinge of sourness. Quite crispy throughout but get it to share as it loses its crisp after a while. The cheese also becomes slightly less stretchy and soft as time passes, not to mention it's very jelak after a while. So one portion actl feeds 2 comfortably. Expectedly the cheese doesn't combine with the curry perfectly, but both the murtabak and the curry are good enough alone that their combination isn't too bad either.

Verdict: magical from the first bite, but not as good as you progress from piece to piece. Worth a try after you've had springleaf's kosong and egg

Have concluded that my favourite prata at Springleaf is the plain prata!! It’s incredibly crispy on the outside yet a bit doughy inside so it tastes really substantial. Their prata texture is my favourite of everywhere so far, although my dad thinks it’s not “traditional” and prefers a less doughy texture.

It’s a bit of a pity that I don’t like their curry that much though, particularly their daal curry - I prefer it a bit more thicker and beany, but the mutton curry is not bad.

As for their other pratas, I’ve tried their ultimate murtabak (mozzarella cheese, tandoori chicken, etc) and normal beef medium murtabak, but it wasn’t as enjoyable because the prata wasn’t crispy due to all the ingredients inside. I did prefer the normal murtabak with a generous amount of onions and meat though, because the cheese in the ultimate murtabak was too overpowering for me and I couldn’t taste much apart from the cheese.

Also didn’t enjoy their thosai that much as it wasn’t as fluffy inside as I would have liked. But their mutton briyani was good! The meat was really tender. Perhaps should try more of their innovative creations, but I think what’s most important to me is a good crispy prata.

Worth a try, but think I'll stick to normal prata in the future!

Firstly, it's size (about A3 size? And about an inch thick - filled with lots of ingredients)

Secondly, it's jam packed with cube sized tandoori chicken, mushrooms, cheese, egg and onions!
Literally a prata version of a pizza just with two big pieces of prata!
Conclusion? The Umami 50 still won many votes with its savoury sweet flavours! But this I guess is definitely a staple for Springleaf Prata!

Definitely the heartiest meal I've had in a while. The combination of sweet and savory prata (with the red bean Prata being the former and the ultimate murtabak being the latter) satisfied every sort of craving we had. Totally no regrets dragging my lazy ass all the way to Upper Thomson area for this!

People tell me that Zam Zam sells the best murtabak in Singapore, but I honestly prefer the one here. Tandoori chicken, onions and portobello mushroom together with melted mozzarella cheese, enclosed in a light flaky crispy Prata skin. Top it off with their extremely flavourful curry which complemented the cheese very well and you've got a calorie ladened but way too-worth-it lunch in your tummy.

How about having prata with poached egg and Indian hollandaise sauce for breakfast? Aromatic buttery prata is made ala minute and topped with turkey ham, very runny egg yolk and drizzled with Indian spiced hollandaise sauce. This dish by The Prata Place is making its debut at #UltimateHawkerFest2014. It made all of us squeal with excitement. We tried it and we love it!
