Quite filling. The ikan Billis really adds a good flavour to every mouthful of rice.

The fried rice by itself is a little blend though

Rice is plentiful and fragrant.

A little dry though.

The chicken is fresh and cooked just right. Doesn't feel overcooked at all.

The fish curry here has a thick and spicy gravy that I like. And they do a really nice rice too. Laced with enough cashew nuts and spices, it's actually quite tasty on its own.
My order above which came to $6, consisted of fish, a cucumber and onion salad, plus one hard boiled egg in sambal. Pretty good value especially with the amount of rice I was given. I swear it's enough to feed 2 people at least.

The colourful rice was what captured my attention first. Taste-wise, the whole dish was definitely more than decent with a thick, fragrant chicken curry and fresh, crunchy pickles. That chicken thigh turned out to be exactly as I hoped - juicy and tender. As expected of this type of Indian-Muslim eateries, the rice serving was XXL.

Fatimah's Eating Place (previously known as Fatimah Nazeeha) is located at Blk 8 Jalan Batu, #01-01.

Is there anyone who hasn’t had a roti prata? It is one of those food items that Singaporeans, regardless of race, language or religion, have always enjoyed. Google “prata” and Top 10 lists of the best pop up. Hang out with friends and a debate on where to go for the crispiest ones can simply spark. However, I think most of us are pretty happy to hit the stall closest to us whenever the craving calls. Fortunately, there are dozens of prata stalls peppered all over our little island city. Which means, more often than not, we are merely a tissue pack’s throw away from one.

Speaking of close proximity, a five-minute drive from my home is a little Indian-Muslim coffeeshop at Blk. 8, Jalan Batu that serves really good pratas. Boasting a level of crispiness that’s audible plus a flavourful dough that has a touch of sweetness, it’s one of those rare ones I actually enjoy on its own. Having said that, the fish curry they dish out here is also worthy of praise. Thick and spicy, the aromatic gravy is nothing like the insipid soups masquerading as curry you get at some places.

What strikes me most is how truly a soul food of Singapore a prata is. I am sure all of us at some point in our lives, have gathered with friends and/or family of different races and religions over a roti prata meal. Chances are, it was for supper, and the atmosphere at the table positively crackled with fun and laughter as we tucked into its assorted variations--egg, no egg, "telur bawang", paper, plaster, etc.--with equal gusto. Now, won’t it be fun to do that again? And soon? 😊

Had this for breakfast at the small Indian-Muslim coffee shop below Blk. 8, Jalan Batu. The prata dough is flavourful with a tinge of sweetness, so it's tasty even without the curry. Texture-wise, it's wonderfully crispy - I could literally hear the crunch when I bit into it. Personally, I prefer egg pratas but if you are big on crunchiness, go for the plain one. The fish curry here is a nicely thick and spicy gravy - so much more than the insipid, half-hearted soups masquerading as curry you get at some places.
