Here is something fun for local Singaporeans as well as foreigners alike – prata making workshop at one of the most famous prata and curry restaurant in Singapore – Casuarina Curry Restaurant at Upper Thomson!

I think most people do not know they have such an initiative. For just S$15, you get to attend a 2-hour prata making workshop, all-you-can-eat prata and one free drink! 

Next time I have foreigner friends in town, I am recommending them to try this for an alternative Singapore heartland experience. This should so be in the list of “ten must-do things in Singapore for tourists”!

Great deal right?

Rachel and I brought Asher to try this out a few weekends back:

The workshop was a lot of fun, especially for Asher who looks to the prata chef with admiration when he perform tricks and stunts, tossing the prata high in the air.

The staff’s English are halting, hence please be patient. They are extremely friendly and helpful though.

There is nothing fancy in the set-up. Basically, you just knead and flip the dough on a plain table and cook them the way the staff do it at the restaurant. It adds to the overall “real-deal” experience.

At the end of the workshop, you get a certificate like this:

Best of all, you get to enjoy an all-you-can eat prata buffet after the hard work. Note that for S$15, it’s just plain prata. Top up to S$20 per pax to get choice of assorted pratas:

All-you-can-eat prata buffet - just order a la carte from the menu
