Lacking satellite TV service at home, whenever there is a big football match, we usually head to KAYU at SS2 to catch the game as they have some half a dozen 42″ plasma TVs in the restaurant. That aside, they also serve some of the better mamak food around the area, like the excellent roti tissue.

how the roti tissue made and served

The roti tissue is made from a larger roti dough and spread paper thin. I don’t really know how they manage to get it done, but somehow at the crucial moment just before the roti gets burnt, they haul it up, manipulate it to a cone shape, and pour some condensed milk and honey/syrup while letting the roti harden. The result is a pretty impressive 3 feet tall roti tissue.

ah.. yumm

As far as taste goes, this snack is pretty sweet, and yet addictively tastey, best consumed when it’s still warm and crispy. When the ultra thin roti laced with sugar just melts in your mouth with the hint of condense milk, oh… It is one of my favorite things to order as a side dish where 2-4 person can share some extra 1000 calorie, best.

this map is pretty sweet, isn’t it?

Other than roti tissue, they serve very good nasi kandar (very spicy) and naan sets too (RM 10.50 for cheese naan & tandoori chicken.) Though the food might be on the high end of price scale when it comes to mamak offering, the food is good, the environment is pretty clean, and the place is air conditioned with some huge TVs. I guess it’s worth it.

Other than SS2, KAYU has outlets at Tesco @ Damansara, Subang SS15, Penang, and many other places, including one branch at Melbourne (Update: since closed)! I think they’re challenging McD, Malaysia boleh!

    there’s once we went to this mamak at ss15, didn’t really know what they call roti tissue at this particular mamak. so i ordered “roti tissue paper” (to be on the safe side cos some mamak call it roti tissue, roti paper or even roti tissue paper).

    blur case mamak brought me a BOX of TISSUE PAPER. boleh buat pang sai chua.

    -_-”

    KY: hahahahahha

    Yah their roti tissue is awesome, tastes really good too aswell as the impressive size.

    Their Nasi Kandar is ridiculously expensive though, and not that good.

    Go next door for Ikan Bakar and Hokkien Mee, yay!

    KY: i agree, but the mutton curry is one of the best i had tho.

    If I’m not mistaken, I saw Kayu in Genting too. By the way, is it Malaysian owned company?

    KY: yah, they’re originally from Penang

    Bryan… I begin to doubt if you are a Malaysian. Moreover a PENANGITE!

    you know….it’s very embarrasing whenever any of my friends order roti Tissue at Kayu/ De Kayu etc. It’s LONG, TALL, SWEET and GREASY.

    Although it is very normal since it’s in the menu, some how other patrons will still keypoh to see WHO ARE EATING THE LONG THIN ROTI TISSUE.

    Anyone realize that Kayu and Ho Ho Sek (formerly Chow Yang) has stolen over 8 feet of sidewalk space? Next time you are there take a look at where the utility poles (electricity) are – now is where their outer seating place is. It has made the SS2/45 road narrower and Thursdays are worse with pasar malam (night market).

      David: I think it’s not “stolen” but just blatantly used.
