It has been a while since we last ate prata at Springleaf Prata Place located in Springleaf Garden. So when we stumbled upon Springleaf’s outlet at Jalan Tua Kong during our recent visit to Siglap, we decided to have lunch there.
Hawker Fest and the Ultimate Series
In case you haven’t been to Springleaf Prata Place before, you may have heard about it in the news when they took part in the Ultimate Hawker Fest charity event back in 2012. At the event, they showcased their Ultimate Murtabak which took the classic prata to a whole new level.
For the next 9 years, they continued to come up with innovative variations of prata each year. This series was called the Ultimate Series and included dishes like the Murtaburger (2013), Plastic Blaster (2014), Umami 50 (2015), Salted Egg Prawn Prata (2016), Prata Alfredo (2017), La Ayam Parotta (2018), Magic Meatless Murtabak (2019), Das Pratwurst (2020), and Praclette (2021).
The unique twists that Springleaf Prata Place adds to their pratas make them stand out from other prata places. You won’t be able to find the same flavours anywhere else.
Besides the branches at Springleaf Garden and Jalan Tua Kong, they are also located at The Rail Mall, Junction 10 (Woodlands), NEWest (West Coast Drive), SAFRA Jurong, Sunset Way (Clementi), SAFRA Tampines and SAFRA Yishun.
In addition to the Ultimate Series, Springleaf Prata Place has a diverse menu that includes dishes like Butter Chicken, Fish Head Curry, Mysore Mutton, Masala Prawns, Briyani, Goreng Goreng, Thosai, Murtabak, Roti John, Kambing Soup, typical prata options, as well as sweet dessert pratas. They also have an extensive selection of drinks, with the must-try Teh Tarik, local drinks, mocktails, milkshakes, lassi, and more.
Here’s what we ordered:
Iced Teh Tarik
We started with an Iced Teh Tarik, served in a big glass. We asked for it to be less sweet, and it was made perfectly. The drink was nicely balanced and cold, making it very refreshing!
For our mains, we tried the Mutton Briyani. The fragrant rice was perfectly cooked, and the mutton didn’t have any gamey taste at all. It was very tender, and we could easily cut through the meat with just a spoon. The curry sauce was rich and quite spicy, making for a satisfying meal.
We also had the Murtaburger, which is their twist on the Ramly Burger and my all-time favourite. The burger had a lot of mozzarella cheese in it, and we were able to get the perfect cheese pull, just like on pizza. The mutton patty was cooked nicely, with a moist and juicy interior. When paired with the black pepper sauce and chilli sauce, it was a heavenly combination.
Finally, we tried the Plaster Blaster, which is their take on Eggs Benedict and my husband’s favourite. The dish consisted of crispy prata with turkey ham and poached egg, topped with spicy Hollandaise sauce and Thousand Island sauce. The egg was perfectly cooked, with a runny yolk that added richness and creaminess to the dish. However, I found the Hollandaise sauce a bit weird, as it didn’t taste like the usual version. Nonetheless, the contrasting textures of the toppings with the crispy prata made for a good dish overall.
If you’re looking for a change from the usual prata offerings, Springleaf Prata Place is worth checking out. With their innovative twists on classic dishes, such as the Ultimate Series, you might just discover a new favourite. They also have a variety of other dishes and drinks to choose from, so there’s definitely something for everyone.
