Roti canai’s the food of the Malaysian masses March 21, 2008

On a cool day, especially in the afternoon when it’s pouring and you can’t get out of the office, sometimes your thoughts drift to your favourite mamak stall where hot, crispy roti canai is served, together with a well “dragged” teh tarik.

Before you know, you are salivating. It’s normal for Malaysians to entertain such culinary thoughts. Roti canai is often heralded as the food of the rakyat. Who can blame them? It is cheap, around 80 sen per piece, found almost anywhere and can be quite nutritious.

You probably find it in some remote Malaysian restaurant in downtown New York but what better place than near some longkang near your home while chit-chatting with friends.
