Mr Prata – Functional 24 Hours Joint‏

Mr Prata on Evans Road is quite an establishment after being in business for so many years. I wonder how many pratas (Indian pancake) they have churned out since opening their doors for business!

Marutama – The Chicken Broth Ramen‏

Marutama Ramen still remains my favourite ramen joint in Singapore…. maybe it is because it is one of the first joints I visited. The chicken broth (toripaitan broth) is tasty but not overwhelming, not to mention the melt in your mouth chargrilled char siu and perfectly cooked thin and springy (Hakata-styled) noodles. The branch in Liang Court is basic and functional. It is dimly lit … Continue reading Marutama – The Chicken Broth Ramen‏
