Good Food In Tampines : Saffron's Cafeteria at Blk 201D Tampines St 21


When the craving for cheese prata and masala thosai hits you on a lazy Saturday morning and Little India just seems to be too far for us Tampines Residents, Saffron's Cafeteria at Blk 201D Tampines St 21 is the place that we will head to for fantastic crispy prata and delicious finger licking good masala thosai. I also love their appoms but you must come early for the appoms as it finishes quite fast. The place is open 24/7 and is also famous for their dum bryani though I have not tried it personally as I am always there for breakfast only. Place is always jam packed but they have expanded to the next door shop so now it's easier to get a seat.

Best Prata in Tampines? : Our crispy cheese naan with sambal

The humble singapore prata with curry and sambal @ Saffron's Cafeteria

This morning, we had 2 cheese naans, 1 masala thosai and 2 teh tarik kurang manis (tea with milk - reduced sweetness) but still the tea came a bit too sweet for our liking. Our breakfast costed us SGD10.50.

The cheese naan is crispy and big with generous cheese filling and come with thick curry gravy and spicy sambal chilli that complements the prata well.

Masala Thosai : crispy skin with creamy potato fillings..yummy!


The masala thosai here has a crispy skin (but not paper thin like paper thosai) and the potato filling is just nice for one person (I find other places' potato fillings to be too much for one serving hence making you very full before your masala thosai is finished). The masala filling is also slightly different, I think they used more coconut milk since it tasted very creamy. The sambar, coconut chutney and chili yoghurt also tasted great.

The only gripe about this place? The lack of parking space, if you are lucky, you will get a spot before your order comes if not you just have to park a bit further away and walk to Saffron's Cafeteria, but hey at least the food is worth it :)
