Our love for liu sha will never die. The delectable rich ingredient is more than just a passing trend. It has stolen the hearts of generations across Singapore and is present in practically every menu everywhere.
We have seen it buns, crabs, croissants, doughnuts, fries, pizzas, waffles and whatnot. But have you ever had the brined creamy golden lava in a roti prata?
Yes, your eyes are not tricking you. If you have yet to hear, our beloved glorious roti prata has taken on new form at Big Street Singapore and has successfully evolved into an addictive Prata Bomb stuffed with molten salted egg custard.
Big Street Singapore – a two-storey casual establishment – opens till 3am from Tuesdays to Sundays and is a new favourite supper destination among Singaporeans. The bar-cum-cafe serves a variety of Singaporean hawker dishes such as roti prata and chicken rice, but the most popular item is evidently the Liu Sha Prata Bomb (S$6++).
The Liu Sha Prata Bomb (S$6++) is stuffed with generous amounts of salted egg yolk lava that literally oozes out rapidly upon knifing through it. Each Liu Sha Prata Bomb is placed on a black stone plate and complemented with a fresh pineapple slice and cherry – though we don’t see the point in that.
We are totally digging this ingenious creation. Don’t underestimate the size of this palm-size prata – it is actually filled with heaps of liu sha and might be a tad too sweet for some people.
Nevertheless, we wiped it clean in an instant because we are that obsessed with liu sha.
