New Victory Restaurant, North Bridge Road

New Victory Restaurant, murtabak
I've been wanting to come down to this place (701 & 703 North Bridge Road, tel : +65 6298 6955) for the longest after Zam Zam to see what were the differences between the two since they had similar looking murtabaks. Funny thing was, according to them, this shop was also a hundred years old this year too. We have by happenstance, visited two neighbouring stalls that are well known for the same food in their hundredth year.

To be honest, it has been more than a year since Zam Zam and there were so much similarities in their murtabak that I was hard pressed to detect much differences between the two. Both had the signature look of folded prata layered with egg and crusted with bits of ground mutton. Both were also loaded with sweet chopped onions and were served in pretty large portions. Perhaps New Victory lacked a little punch from the flavour of the ground mutton. I cannot be sure. I think I'll need to head back to Zam Zam again soon if I had to differentiate them. This locale at North Bridge Road offers an unparalleled option for murtabak which probably cannot be found elsewhere.
