Tag / roti tissue

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!
