Suzie’s Prata House opened this year in Morley, nestled along the eateries outside the Coventry Village Market and sharing the same location with the bubbletea store, Hi Tea. I’d found out about it while getting my bubbletea fix one day at Hi Tea and made a note to visit, anticipating some authentic mamak / hawker style cuisine.
The setup is simple, almost bare but I was there just for the food so there’s no complaint in this area whatsoever. The usual mamak classics are on offer, Roti, Tosai, Fried Noodles, Fried Rice, Murtabak, Briyani. It was so exciting!
My friend and I ordered two dishes to share between the two of us…
- Plain Prata Combo Set ($9) – 2 x plain prata with a choice of either masala chicken or diced mutton curry. We chose the masala chicken curry. The chicken curry was good, it was spicy, thick and saucy, perfect for “prata dipping”. I thought the pratas were on the average side, they were not as flaky and light as expected. I had a suspicion they were not made to order and thus lost the crispiness that comes with a freshly made prata. They were still good though but not great.
- Indian Rojak ($9.50) – the Indian Rojak is only available as a weekend special, perfect timing for me as we were there on the weekend! It was awesome, fried tofu, fried dough fritters, boiled potatoes, onions and cucumbers mixed with a sweet, thick and spicy peanut sauce. My favorite! I have since been back to get takeaway of this on a few weekends. Yum!
- Chendol ($4) – a traditional dessert drink containing coconut milk, jelly noodles made from rice flour with pandan flavoring, shaved ice and palm sugar. My friend ordered this and she liked it.
All in all, Suzie’s Prata House was a great discovery, mamak food at very reasonable prices! I had also taken away the Mee Goreng and it was yummy, with an authentic mamak taste! I will be back to try the other dishes on the menu.
For those who love their bubbletea either with your meal or as an after meal dessert drink, Hi Tea is wonderfully situated next to Suzie’s Prata House. Besides the normal range of bubble tea, Hi Tea has created some unique flavors for the more adventurous such as the Durian Smoothie, Turkish Delight, Frozen Bubbletea, Soursop Smoothie to name a few. More flavors can be found on their website (click here)
My friend ordered the Durian Smoothie (LHS picture below) to try but thought the flavor was lacking. Maybe that may not be such a bad thing but not so for a die-hard durian lover! 😛 The picture on the RHS is the Original Milk Tea with sago pearls. Prices for a bubbletea range from $3.50 — $4.50 for a regular and $4.50 – $5.50 for a large with an extra 0.50c each for a sago, pudding or jelly topping.
