Egg prata has been elevated with just a few words by one Twitter user, who gave his plate a cafe-worthy upgrade with keywords like ‘handcrafted’ and ‘artisanal’. Sure makes it sound expensive — with that description, you could probably sell this in a swanky cafe for, what, $15?

And that, in turn, inspired other Twitter users to describe their ‘atas’ meals.
@frhn Just had handcrafted coconut milk-infused rice w crispy marinated chicken wing, pan-fried farm egg, gourmet potato cake & anchovies.

Ahem, that’s nasi lemak for those of you who didn’t get it.
@frhn organic onions grown in remote valleys, harvested at the crack of dawn by those pure of heart and mind
