3 questions with Somasundram Mohgan
1. What’s a day in your life like?
Service starts at 6.30am so I have to wake up early and prepare the prata. It’s not an issue for me because I prep the dough right after the shop closes at 1pm for the next day so there’s no rush! In my free time I go running sometimes.
2. How did you and Mrs Mohgan meet?
We were introduced by a matchmaker and it was an arranged marriage. Luckily, she didn’t mind selling prata with me from the start.
3. If its not prata you’re having, what do you like to eat?
I like prata, it’s my life but I also love mee goreng with egg, it’s my favourite. And if it’s prata, it has to be crispy. No other way.

One of Singapore's best kept secrets, this small stall is only open on weekdays and even so, tends to run out pretty early so it might take you a few tries before you finally get to try it. It's all in the actual name of the shop, really. The prata kosongs here are super crispy on the outside and much fluffier on the inside. It may sound and look so simple but there's a reason why people keep returning to this gem in Joo Chiat.
