Joo Chiat Prata Review : AL Falah Barakah Restaurant

Craving for Prata?

If you are at Joo Chiat Road and crave Prata, there are 2 options to choose from. The first is the famous Mr & Mrs Mohgan Super Crispy Prata which only opens in the morning. The other one is Al Falah Barajah Restaurant, located in the middle of Joo Chiat Road, which is open 24 hours on most days.

Prata is a food you can enjoy in the morning or late in the evening. Since we are craving it during dinnertime, Al Falah Barakah Restaurant is our destination.

Joo Chiat Prata

Located along the junction of Joo Chiat Road and Duku Road, this is an old-school laid-back, chill spot. The decor is nothing fanciful, and the dining tables are on the sidewalks next to the street.  This spot is about 300m from the popular Joo Chiat Peranakan houses, so if you are in the vicinity sightseeing, you might want to drop in here.

Al Fresco - Singapore Style

This is the typical Kopitiam Al fresco style. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it suits us perfectly.

If you are ordering just Prata, it is just fine. If you want something different, like Mee Goreng, Roti John, Nasi Biryani or Thosai, we suggest your check out the menu.

Mutton Prata ($8)

At $8, this is the smallest Mutton Prata. It is quite large and sufficient to feed one or even two pax.  The Prata is filled with mutton, onions and egg. It is cooked to a light burn and is not super crispy. However, in terms of taste and texture, we think this is one of the better Murtabak we have tried.

While the prata is good, the curry tends to be a tad too watery. If they could improve on that texture, it would be perfect.

 Chocolate Tissue ($4)

If you like your crispy prata, you might opt for tissue prata instead. Tissue prata is a thinner and crisper version of the traditional prata and comes as a cone. To spice things up, you can add a flavour to it.

Coin Prata ($8.5)

If you prefer your prata thick and fluffy, go for the coin prata. These are miniature versions of prata that are cooked thicker than usual. We paid $8.50 for 6. While it may sound pricey, it comes with Curry sauce and a whole drumstick. You can also opt for mutton curry if you prefer the latter.

Roti John Chicken ($6.50)

The Roti John was a big portion of an omelette sandwich. The one we ordered came with chicken. You can opt for mutation, tuna or even sardine. For light eaters, two can easily share one Roti John.

Mee Goreng ($7)

The Mee Goreng was a delightful dish. This comfort food consists of starchy spice noodles, fried eggs and a generous chicken portion with cucumbers on the side. The whole dish came together quite nicely. While it may not be our daily meal, it is a treat and a good alternative to prata.


The food was good for us. We cannot vouch for the rest as we stick to the safer and more familiar options. As for service, it really depends on who is the one attending. Having eaten that before, we kind of understood how they work. For newbies, service can be a hit-or-miss affair. Overall, we are not fussy, so it's all good. 

As for the price, it was around $12 per pax, including drinks. GST would be payable for this place. While it is affordable, the downside is that we must go for a jog the next morning!
