Hi guys! Whatsup there? Earlier today, We went to have brunch at our fave prata place. We have known about roti prata since we went to Malaysia & Singapore, and it’s been our fave food ever since. It’s light, sweet and savoury, a perfect match with kopi (coffee) / teh (tea) tarik! Back in Jakarta, it’s quite hard to find prata – I only know one prata place actually ( one at jaksa street.. ugh i miss it) 😦 But when we came to Bintan, prata place is everywhere! Wohoo!One of the oldest & famous prata place in Tanjungpinang is Kedai Kopi Pagi Sore. But this time we will review its branch that located at Pamedan, not far from our home at Batu 8 Atas area.They have been serving malay-indian food since 1957 – it’s been 60 years :O! It was founded by Haji Kamu, an Indian man live in Tanjungpinang, and now being run by his children.They have various kind of prata here, from prata kosong, beef prata, chicken prata, to cheesy prata. Our fave is prata kosong and beef prata. Prata kosong is the plain one, comes with curry sauce as dip. It’s savoury and crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, ah perfection! The curry sauce texture is semi-creamy, seasoning is great and the flavor was vibrant. What makes it different from others is, you can feel the richness of the herbs and spices in the curry sauce. Meanwhile, the beef prata has multiple thin layers of dough that are somewhat chewy, rather than crisp, fills with ground beef and onion. It comes with sweet and salty soy sauce. It makes a good option if you want something heavier than prata kosong.And when you mention prata, it’s not complete without kopi / teh tarik. My fave is iced kopi tarek, while Ivan’s is iced teh tarik. Their kopi and teh tarik is rich and creamy, never a dissapointment! (ps: If you want your coffee / tea to be thicker, or less sweet, you can personally ask them! :D)
Other than that, they also serve other dish like fried rice, nasi mandhi (indian-type rice, served with roasted chicken / lamb, haven’t try this one yet, but of course i would!), and asma rujak. Asma rujak is a crab dish, served with tofu, cucumber, fried dumplings and peanut sauce. If you ever heard of batagor, this one is similiar, but comes with crabs. And if you love peanut sauce, you would not want to miss this one! Their lamb fried rice is quite good too. It’s been Ivan’s fave lately, always comes with that perfect smokey aroma and the portion given is quite generous for single serving.
For the price, it’s not the cheapest place in town, but it’s certainly one of the best value places as they always use fresh and high quality ingredients.

Kedai Kopi Pagi Sore is one of our favourite place for brunch. Foods and drinks are yummy and come out quickly, service is friendly, and we’re looking forward to taste their other dishes as they have various menu. Overall, it’s always been a good experience there and I’d recommend you give them a try. Oh and for you prata lovers, they have frozen prata and curry sauce paste too! Just make sure you order 2-3 days before!
