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.
