Ali Khan – Adorable,Buttery & Instaworthy Coin Prata !
Situated along MacPherson Road,Ali Khan Restaurant is a 24-hour Indian-Muslim joint.We are all familiar with places like Ali Khan because they are our favourite,go-to places for supper!Photos of Ali Khan's cute looking coin pratas floating on the Internet caught my attention and I knew I had to make a trip specially for these babies.
We were supposed to chat with the manager of Ali Khan,but due to some miscommunication and the timing of our visit (it was lunch hour),the staff at Ali Khan was unable to speak to us.Nonetheless,we ordered a few of their more interesting dishes to try!
I made a beeline for their famous Coin Prata with Mutton Set ($5.50) straightaway.They were definitely tinier than the pratas we are used to,though not quite the size of a coin either.The fragrant coin pratas were so kawaii looking and tasted superb too — crispy on the outside while fluffy on the inside!Imagine buttery golden layers intricately wrapped around and atop each other to form a delicious,fried disc.It was love at first sight,or rather on first taste!Pratas are known to be quite oily but Ali Khan's coin pratas are lighter and less oily.There were two mutton curry dips available — a dark red spicy gravy,和通常的咖喱。Of the two,I preferred the dark red curry because of the sambal sweetness which paired better with the coin pratas.
Their Nasi Briyani Dum looked grvwin备用eat as well and since the red fried chicken on display was absolutely enticing,we ordered a Fried Chicken Nasi Briyani ($6).The basmati rice was on the stickier side and you can really taste the spices in it.I found the bright red hue of the fried chicken similar to that of tandoori chicken,even though both were completely different in texture.The fried chicken was satisfyingly crispy,and remained juicy even after being left out for awhile.However,it was a tad too salty for me.The savoury spicy chicken curry which accompanied the briyani had a mild spicy kick,which made the briyani even more captivating.
Unfortunately,the Maggi Prata ($4.50) was quite disappointing.This dish really dampened any initial excitement we had.I tried my best to find redeeming qualities in it but struggle to come up with even a single one.The maggi noodles were extremely bland,almost tasteless,and very clumpy with an off-putting,powdery texture.My friend suggested that it was likely the chef had forgotten to put seasoning for the noodles.Perhaps some things,such as Maggi noodles and prata,cannot be forced together as the final product tasted nothing like prata nor maggi.
The location of Ali Khan Restaurant is not exactly the most convenient,especially for those who don't drive.It is located about a seven-minute walk from the nearest MRT station,大生。While that might not seem to be too long,trudging under the unforgiving sun in the unbearable hvwin备用eat to get to the restaurant made the journey seemed longer.I suggest visiting Ali Khan Restaurant at night when it is much cooler.Don't forget to order the must-try coin pratas!
