Tag / roti canai

Klang is known for bak kut teh, hong ba, and maybe to a lesser extend, those Klang style red wine mee suah that I love so much. However, being a huge district that is home to over a million people, there are certainly some outliers when it comes to food offering that are favorites among the locals – enter Roti Canai Pandamaran, also known as Restoran I.V.

As the name suggests, this is a place best known for it’s roti canai. The restaurant is located rather deep within Pandamaran, and certainly quite a distance away from KL itself, but for those who loves roti canai, I think this place may just worth a visit.

Restoran I.V. also known as Roti Canai Pandamaran. They really do serve the best roti canai in town, certainly one of the bests I’ve tried so far. Meehun/mee goreng is decent, nasi lemak is fragrant and good too. Worth the drive. #kyeats #breakfast #roti #roticanai #pandamaran #klang #halal

We were there only weekend around brunch hours, and the place was packed full house with customers. Along the left wall there are three roti canai making stations with five guys concentrating on nothing but preparing and cooking roti canai. I’ve never seen such an operation dedicated to roti canai, it was actually quite impressive.

We tried their roti telur with and without bawang, roti kosong, and roti planta. I’m happy to report that the roti were really top notch, with just the proper amount of crispiness and flavor, and served with rather good curry as well, though I’ve had better dal & sambal option elsewhere. That being said, it is still one of the best roti canai I’ve tried from anywhere.

I.V Restaurant also offers some non-roti options such as meehun goreng and nasi lemak. While these dishes are competent, they aren’t anything to really shout about, I’d order another roti instead!

Everyone knows about Char Kuih Teow and Hokkien mee in Penang, but do you know that you can find one of the best road side roti canai place on the little island too? Hungry stomachs seeking something other than Chinese food in Penang rejoice, as a bonus, it’s Halal mamak food, too.

just look at the curry beef!

The stall is located at Transfer Road a stone’s throw away from the Chulia Street junction, in the heart of Georgetown, Penang. The must-try item is not exactly the roti canai itself, but the curry beef that is the side order for the roti canai. The meat is absolutely tender and never over cooked, it tastes sweet and juicy. I had the beef with roti telur and a glass of teh ais for breakfast, and everything came to less than RM 4, if I remember correctly.
