If you ever think of having malaysian-western style breakfast, with roti bakar (toast), milo, and perhaps half-boiled egg, head to PJ state, there you will find the best roti bakar this side of klang valley.

simple, yet very tasty

There are several factors that set this roti bakar offering from the rest. Firstly, the bread is not your run of the mill Gardenia type, but rather a specially made bread not unlike those old school Bengali Roti.

Secondly, a generous layer of butter or kaya is spread to the bread prior to toasting, instead of after. This allows the filling to seep into the bread from the heat, bonding the flavor into the bread itself. Lastly, instead of electric toaster, charcoal is used.

I always end up ordering at least a serving of roti bakar (RM1.20) even if I have something else as the main meal for breakfast. Perhaps you should give it a try too.
