So on Facebook, there is a pretty big public group called "Halal Cafe and Restaurants in Singapore", and one particular post has in recent days been gaining plenty of attention and circulation even though it's a few months old:
Here's a screenshot of it in case you can't see it:
It's a photo of an Indian dish called the "Murtaburger", a "marriage" of the Murtabak (prata stuffed with a variety of ingredients) and the well-loved Ramly burger — which these days most of us can only find sub-par iterations of at pasar malams (night markets).
What's in it? Two mutton patties. Wrapped in egg, Ramly-style, mayonnaise and chilli/black pepper sauce, as well as plenty of oozing Mozzarella cheese, and the "burger" buns? Delightful, crispy, delicious prata.
So we'll get straight to the point: you can get it for $7 at any of the three outlets of Indian food chain Springleaf Prata Place. You can visit their flagship location at number 1, Thong Soon Avenue, or if you're an Eastie, their second location at 57B, Jalan Tua Kong (off Siglap Road). Their newest branch at Rail Mall is now open too:

But now we're talking about Springleaf Prata Place, we might as well tell you about some of their other interesting concoctions that have proved popular among their fans and diners:
1. Plaster Blaster ($5)
Plain prata, ham, poached egg, hollandaise sauce and spring onions. Eggs Ben Prata.
2. Ultimate Murtabak ($12)
Prata stuffed with tandoori chicken, portobello mushrooms and mozzarella cheese. Doubt we need to say more.
3. Umami 50 ($8)
Prata stuffed with chicken luncheon meat, chicken floss, mozzarella cheese, mayonnaise and egg. One of their newest menu items.
4. Prata Goreng ($4)
Essentially mee/maggi goreng, but with prata instead of the mee or maggi. Whut!
5. Portobello Mushroom Cheese Prata ($5)
As explained. Yes, you might balk at the idea of a $5 prata, but you haven't tried prata with portobello mushrooms in it, have you?
And because we know this is what you came here for, here are more pics of the Murtaburger:
You can take this as your formal jio.
