The roti canai at Transfer Road in Penang has been around for a long time and is often packed during weekends and public holidays. It is best to get there before 11am or there might be no curry left for you.
To be honest, the roti canai isn’t great. I found it rather doughy, despite my request for “garing” (crispy). The curries do most of the talking. Chicken curry … beef curry … mutton curry … all thick, spicy and tasty. My favourite of the lot was the beef curry, cooked till tender and aromatic from the assorted spices.
I love drinking curry gravy and roti canai banjir is one of my favourite Malaysian snacks to eat, especially when the curries are good. Mix all the curries together and enjoy! Not for those with weak stomach though.
Despite Ken’s warning to eat light, I ignored his advice and ordered another portion of beef curry. Greedy I know, but I don’t live in Penang so I get the licence to indulge.
