we came here to have roti prata at the muslim food stall S.M. Aisha on 28.12.2014, and was staring at the 2 large cold crabs on display at the teochew stall next to it.

we finally decided 1/2way through our roti prata, to end the staring & all unfulfilled desires and bought one S$16 cold crab.

it was really good! ^^

it was large, packed with roes, and the meat filled to the shell. meat was sweet.

at first, they gave us a sweet red chilli, the type used in some dimsum restaurant. after some bites, i decided not to let live & asked if they had the teochew “kig you” 桔油.. they had, and very friendly & cheerful about it. so, always ask… ^^

ya..i love this crab..cold crab was S$28++ last time at chui huay lim. this S$16 was just as good.

i plan to come back & try their other teochew food, like braised duck, sambal crayfish etc.

we had roti prata at the muslim food stall S.M. Aisha. each of us had 2 prata gosong. son added a egg prata as well.

total for 4pax for 8 gosong + 1 egg prata = S$7.80.

last 2 times prata here was very good.

this time was ok but not as good. for me, whether crispy or doughy, most important is the taste. today it’s so so. daughter said recently she went back to mr prata, & it was good. these food do vary a bit.
