Twitter user comes up with hilarious description of prata as handcrafted south Asian crepes

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.



Ahem, that’s nasi lemak for those of you who didn’t get it.



Funny stuff.

For more tongue-in-cheek reviews of ‘artisanal’ places, check out our Le Cheap Gourmand series on Ananas Cafe, McDonald’s and Geylang Serai’s Ramadan Bazaar. We promise you won’t be able to get through them without laughing.
