Milo butter prata from The Roti Prata House

The Roti Prata House, milo butter prata

Definitely guilty pleasure there in my books down at The Roti Prata House (246M Upper Thomson Road, Thomson Garden Estate, tel : +65 6459 5260) with all that Milo powder soaked with greasy margarine (I'm not so sure if it's all butter or if there's even any butter in there) folded within a crispy fried skin of flour that was eventually fried in more grease into a pastry of mottled golden brown. Well, not exactly that romantic with the real thing, but one gets the picture.

What I liked about them was that most of the crisp was contained in the surface so the end product was a textural mix of crispiness and chewiness. Just like pizza eh? Except that when one says this stuff doesn't do your arteries any favours, it's meant to be serious rather than jest. An extremely local representation of rich, sweet and savoury packed into a pastry snack.

In the scorching heat of these days, a great wash down would be a cup of ice cold and milky bandung.
