  • Breakfast time! Do la do doo do da doo.

  • So many options. So many options and Sam is too busy with his camera to even think about

  • food right now. Time to put on the mic. Time to put on the mic.

  • This is how we film guys. This is how we film. Guerrilla style. With the Olympus and a giant

  • microphone. It doesn't draw any attention. None at all. No crowds. None whatsoever.

  • Well good morning good morning. It is breakfast time here in Singapore and we are bringing

  • you to our favorite Indian Muslim food restaurant slash stall. We've been coming here on a daily

  • basis since we got to Singapore and the food is really really good. So I'm going to let

  • Sam go place the order. Off you go! Alrighty then.

  • Actually when we want to be discreet I send Sam off with my little point and shoot. So

  • I'm filming with a big camera right now.

  • (Cooking sounds)

  • Alright guys, so just as a fair warning today's video might be a little bit loud because we're

  • having breakfast on the sidewalk and there is like rush hour traffic happening next to

  • us. You can see it right here. Yeah.

  • Okay. Thank you. And the food keeps arriving. Oh wow.

  • Look at all of the food. I know.

  • So this morning we wanted to show you a little bit of everything so we're being piggies we've

  • ordered four different dishes. Yep. The first three are already here. So first up we got

  • some that is called well I've heard it called two ways. Dosa Masala or Masala Dosai (தோசை).

  • So it is kind of like a folded pancake with different curries and gravies and then we

  • also have our pratas. We got egg. No we got cheese prata. Yeah, cheese with egg and the

  • other one is banana prata.

  • So this is kind of like a folded pancake. Um, and it also comes with a nice sauce and

  • the third one. The third we're still working on. What did we get?

  • Oh, we got Murtabak. Murtabak. Yes.

  • Yeah, so that is a folded pancake stuffed with mutton. You can get different meats but

  • we chose mutton. And we've also ordered tea and coffee. Sam couldn't make up his mind.

  • I know. So he's having both tea and coffee. I don't know if I want to have tea or coffee

  • so I ended up getting two.

  • You're just having tea. And you know what? It is um this tea is amazing. Check out the

  • cup. Here you can see the milk sitting at the bottom and the reason it is sitting at

  • the bottom is because it is so thick. Like I'm pretty sure this is condensed milk at

  • the bottom.

  • But I always confuse condensed and evaporated but condensed is the sweet one I believe.

  • Yeah. There it is. I'm going to mix it all in. It is so sweet and so good and like yeah

  • we've just been having this basically every morning. I know. Even in the heat. It is a

  • very local breakfast from in the area that we're staying in Singapore which is quite

  • far from the city centre. Ooh and it is here. Oh my gosh. Wow. Look at that. Thank you.

  • Oh my gosh. That is a lot of food. We ordered way too much food. What are we thinking? I

  • know we could finish this no problem. First time ever ordering too much food.

  • Okay Sam, breakfast time. What are you starting out with? So I am starting out with actually

  • this is the thing we've been ordering the most. It is the different kinds of prata they

  • have served. Basically it is a folded pancake and it comes in all kinds of different fillings

  • and flavors. Yes. The one we ordered here is cheese but you can also get banana which

  • is the second one we have. And then we also noticed there is even like ones with like

  • ice cream. There is ones with mushrooms so it is like chocolate. Chocolate.

  • So you can just pick whatever you want and order it. So I'm going to show you what the

  • cheese looks like in here. Yeah. You can kind of see it. It is not really seeping out because

  • it has been obviously cooked inside but you can see that right here. So my first bite

  • is obviously going to be with cheese. So I've got one from the middle with the cheese.

  • I'm going to grab a little bit or curry which is over on the side here. Dunk that in there.

  • Take it for a swim. Take it for a swim.

  • Wow.

  • That curry is really potent today.

  • A little spicier than on other days. Wow. Wasn't expecting that but it is cool unexepected

  • surprise. Yeah.

  • So yeah, this is just really good. So if you've had the type of pancakes that you can have

  • in India and also Southeast Asia then this is very similar to that. It is just really

  • nice. Especially with the cheese. It is kind of a just this particular cheese I think here

  • is like a processed cheese. Yeah, it is like the sliced pre-packaged cheese. Yeah. But

  • I mean when you melt cheese it is good either way.

  • So it kind of tastes like a little bit like a grilled cheese in some ways but a grilled

  • cheese pancake. Yes but with this pancake it is a little bit greasy and it is just such

  • a nice way to start the morning.

  • Alright.

  • Okay so Sam had the cheese prata right now I'm going in for the banana. And if you take

  • a close look at this you can already see the banana slices in there. Oh yeah you sure can.

  • A folded pancake it has been fried. Like this is so good. Look at the banana. Oh it is so

  • good.

  • Let's break this off. This one is my personal favorite. I like this one even more than the

  • cheese.

  • You know what? I like the banana one when they combine it with chocolate syrup. Of course

  • you do. We've had it before at a few places. That is like having dessert for breakfast

  • so.

  • Mmmm.

  • That is good. It has like a natural sweetness to it. The bananas are really ripe and mushy.

  • That is really good. I think that is what really makes a good pancake. Is it you've

  • got to make sure the bananas are nice and ripe and mushy.

  • Otherwise it just makes it so they disintegrate in your mouth. Yeah. And you know what?

  • Even though the banana one is sweet I still like dipping it in this lovely gravy slash

  • curry. Wow, it is a lot thicker today. Yeah. It is usually a bit more watered down.

  • Careful it is spicy. Mmm. At least mine was.

  • Mmmm.

  • That is so good. The mix of sweet and savory and spicy. I really like that. It is all happening

  • this morning. So many flavors.

  • Okay so this next one has a lot of different pronunciations. Yeah.

  • So I'm going to go with Murtabak (مطبق). But I think you can say Mortabek. It has a

  • whole bunch of different ones. I think in Arabic it is Murtabak (مطبق). Yeah.

  • And in Arabic it means folded. Yes.

  • Yeah, and so you can see here that it is shaped in a triangle and unlike the other ones um.

  • Unlike the first ones we tried in the prata this one is a bit thicker.

  • So you can see the ingredients seeping out. This is the mutton that we got. Yeah.

  • And so this is our first time to try it. So it is also something you'll notice when you're

  • eating in a restaurant in Singapore is that you're often eating with a spoon and a fork.

  • Yes. Knives are not very common here.

  • Yeah or you could just use your hands with this food. Yeah, you totally could. You totally

  • could. Um, so I'm just going to dip it in to this it looks like a bit of a sweet sauce

  • here. Yeah and you can see the chunks of mutton.

  • Yeah. And aside from mutton chicken was another option. And everything here is Halal meat

  • because it is a muslim Indian restaurant. Right.

  • Wow.

  • How do you like it? It is quite good. Yeah. It is quite good. It is as filling and a little

  • bit spicy. Yeah. It is not sweet at all like the other pancakes. This one is absolutely

  • savory.

  • And also the exterior of this pancake of this type of filling or sorry on the outside it

  • is not as greasy. Okay. It is not as greasy as the other ones. Alright. It is a different.

  • It definitely a different taste. I do like it and I mean we have four of these. We are

  • going to be full if we somehow manage to finish all of them.

  • Alright, dish number four. I'm starting to get full now. This is a real struggle.

  • But this is what we ordered. Again I've heard this called like two different names. Tosai

  • Masala. Masala Dosai.

  • And then there is like different pronunciations. Everyone says it a little differently. I don't

  • even know what the real name is. I guess it varies by region.

  • But anyways let's dig in. Let's break it here in the middle. Oh, it looks so fluffy.

  • Yeah.

  • And this one is made with different ingredients isn't it?

  • So this one is like a stuffed folded pancake and it has got a potatoes.

  • Mashed potatoes.

  • And yeah, some different veggies, some onions. So I'm just going to break off a piece

  • La la la lah.

  • That looks so good. And again we have so many different sauces to choose from or curries

  • if you will.

  • This one looks pretty basic. This one looks like the lental one.

  • I'm still learning all of my different curries guys so not a pro here.

  • Mmmm.

  • What do you think?

  • Oh wow.

  • Like that?

  • That is really good.

  • I love the potato in there. Look at that. Yeah, that is what really makes it. We tried

  • this for the first time the other day. And some peppers.

  • Oh wow. Look at that.

  • It is massive.

  • Massive chunks of pepper there.

  • Yeah.

  • And this one I find like how I would describe it personally is it is lighter than the other

  • ones we've tried. It looks like this pancake looks really large but it is actually quite

  • light.

  • Don't you agree? It is yeah. This has been all so good. So so good. We're feasting over

  • here.

  • This is a great way to start the day. Honestly.

  • It seriously is.

  • And last but not least let's talk about the drinks.

  • Sammy boy.

  • Yeah, so for breakfast in Singapore you basically have your tea and your coffee. The tea is

  • spelled 'T E H' and the coffee is spelled 'K O P I' Teh (teh tarik) and kopi. Yeah.

  • So let's try the tea first.

  • That is really quite good. I know it is so sweet. There is a lot of sugar added. There

  • is a lot of milk added.

  • And it sort of reminds me a little bit of a masala chai I have to say. It is not quite

  • it doesn't quite have the spices or flavors of that but yeah it sort of reminds me of

  • that.

  • Now on to the kopi. Coffee.

  • And again this one has a lot of sugar added. And milk added. So if you like your tea and

  • coffee black um you're going to be in for a bit of a surprise here.

  • Fortunately, I do like my sweet. I like sweet tea and coffee. Now this coffee compared to

  • the tea has a much stronger flavor. Yeah.

  • And so I between the two if I'm first waking up in the morning I'm probably going to go

  • with the coffee but say mid-afternoon I think I would prefer the tea.

  • And Sam has been known to drink three cups of tea for breakfast. He's like one more!

  • I can polish off a lot of these. One more!

  • These are really really good.

  • Breakfast time is over.

  • You survived.

  • Oh, that was a lot of food.

  • That was more like a brunch. Yeah. Definitely.

  • That was four dishes. Four dishes and three drinks.

  • Yeah. Normally we do not order that much. Yeah. But we wanted to show you guys. This

  • was all for you guys.

  • Yeah, there you go.

  • Anyways, it came to 16 Singapore Dollars which was 11 US dollars. And that is total.

  • That is for four main dishes and three drinks. So you know that is really cheap. Um, when

  • we normally just order our pratas we're looking more at like four or five dollars total. Yeah.

  • So we went all out today. We splurged. We got we paid double the price but definitely

  • ate double the food and we are very full. I almost feel like crawling in to bed back

  • again just to digest all of this. Haha.

  • But yeah, if you're in Singapore definitely try this kind of breakfast. It is awesome.

Breakfast time! Do la do doo do da doo.
