Started out by a Kelantanese couple back in the early 80’s, they only have two things in mind. One, cook up the best authentic Kelantanese fare outside of Kelantan and two, toss a no fuss, no muss Roti Canai. I have to say, they did a pretty darn good job at it!

Now run by their daughter Rozita and her uncle Abdul Rahman, not much has changed since they started running it. It’s still the same good ol’ homecookin’ east coast chow.

We’re going back to basics first and tearing into the Roti Canai Kosong and the first thing you’ll get is that “wangi” pastry aroma. That is because they double up on the planta in their dough to make sure it’s extra flaky, light and “wangi”.

The roti man recommended the Roti Canai Telur Goyang as well, it’s not your run of the mill Roti Canai Telur Goyang. Instead of putting in a half boiled egg, he changes it up and throws in a telur mata kerbau with crispy edges to give it a bit of texture. You have to try it, it’s a perfect medley of flaky roti, soft and crunchy telur and smothered it with a hearty dhal and dash of sambal for sweetness. You can’t get it elsewhere but here
