Named after its owner, this restaurant has been serving up what they consider to be the best roti canai in KL for more than 20 years. And we find it hard to argue – the plain roti canai here is generously sized and has all the qualities of a good roti: crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, with a mild doughy sweetness that keeps you going back for more. Remember to order your roti as 'garing' (crispy); or go for the made-to-order roti telur or roti planta instead which will ensure they arrive at your table hot and crispy. The restaurant is popular among night-owls seeking a pre- or post-clubbing bite, so expect a crowd on Friday and Saturday nights.
Eaten for breakfast or supper (or anytime during the day, really), roti canai is one of the favourite dishes of KLites. Sure, it’s not something health fanatics will advocate, but when you’re hungry and have less than RM5 in your wallet, nothing fills you up better than a serving of crispy, hot roti canai served right off the pan. Here are some of our favourite places to have them.
