Roti canai: a Malaysian flatbread, often served with curry


Malaysian street vendor making roti canai

Roti canai, an Indian-influenced flatbread, boasts crisp, flaky flayers. Here in America, restaurants offer it as an appetizer. In Malaysia, it's served as breakfast food. Pair the bread with a steaming mug of pulled tea (teh tarik, the hot boba-less cousin of bubble tea) for an unbeatable combo.

One word: Yum!
There is a Malaysian/Singaporean restaurant in my town called Banana Island. This is where I first discovered roti and curry. I need to get back there soon.

Mmmm. I'll eat vicariously with you. We used to have a restaurant really close to us, but unfortunately, they ended up moving to a new location nearly an hour away :(
