  1. Prata, a popular Indian flatbread, has sparked an island-wide debate in Singapore – where can one find the best Prata?
  2. Rivals Saffrons and Enaq, from the East and West of Singapore respectively, have been pit against each other in a quest for Prata supremacy.
  3. Opinions on these beloved establishments are diverse and passionate but, after a multi-faceted evaluation, food blogger Zaki Hussain declared Saffrons as the Prata Champion.

Between the East and the West, where does the best Prata lie? Local TikToker and food enthusiast, Zaki Hussain, took upon himself to solve this mystery.

Judging the Prata from two popular eateries, Saffrons and Enaq, he embarked on an epicurean journey.

A Tale of Two Pratas

The joy of Prata lies in its simplicity.

A wholesome, satisfying dish composed of a lightly fried flatbread served alongside distinctively Singaporean dips – sambal and curry.

And yet, in the nuances of these simple constituents, there are wars waged.

Saffrons vs Enaq: A Tough Decision

From Saffrons in the East to Enaq in the West, Zaki sampled, pondered and finally, judged.

“And the winner Is versus West. With a heavy heart, Saffrons is Winner,” he declared, acknowledging the tough contest.

Saffrons, despite its simpler rendition of Prata, claimed the crown primarily for its accompaniments.

It’s More Than Just Prata

The curry at Saffrons, thick and rich, and the sambal, sweet and spicy, evidently left an enduring impression on the man.

“The curry was thick,” Zaki raved, “To be honest, I think it’s one of the best curries”.

The nuances of these dips seemed to have tipped the scales in Saffrons’ favour against the potato-filled Prata of Enaq.

Friendly Rivalry, Spirited Conversations

The quest sparked lively debates on TikTok.

Prata lovers fiercely defended their favourite joints, leading the conversation beyond Saffrons and Enaq, flooding Zaki’s comment section with fresh recommendations and old favourites

“TAMPINES IS CARRYING THE EAST,” one user asserted, whilst another countered, “Two chef prata at Thompson”.

The Culinary Adventure Continues

And as we well know, taste is subjective.

Each bite is an amalgamation of personal history, individual preferences and contextual ambiance.

Therefore, even as Zaki crowned Saffrons, the victory seems but temporary as the next bite could bring forth a new champion.

In conclusion, amidst the disparate opinions and spirited banter, a unifying thread emerges.

Whether it’s Saffrons’ sambal-smeared Prata, Enaq’s potato-filled offering, or even another stall’s version, it’s a celebration of Singapore’s multicultural culinary heritage.

It’s the recognition of Prata, not just as a dish but as an integral part of Singaporean identity.

So where does your loyalty lie?

Are you a fan of Saffrons, Enaq, or another place close to your heart perhaps?

We’d love to hear from you.

After all, the Prata Showdown must go on and who knows?

Your recommendation might just overtake Saffrons and Enaq.

After all, isn’t that what makes the Prata journey ever so exciting?
