Food In Kedah : Breakfast in Alor Setar 'Roti Canai'

It might not be fair to tell you this restaurant is have the best ‘roti canai’ in town, but I must admit it since I was young it is the best. The shop is situated in Jalan Sultanah or as local folks known as Jalan Day. The shop existed ages ago since I was young & still among the best restaurant in town famous for its ‘roti canai’ & ‘mee abu’.

Even my wife always looking forward to the simple round ‘roti canai’ every time we get back to Alor Setar. Sometimes I need to go as early as 8.00 am just to order take away breakfast nearly around 10-20 pieces of it. And normally it took nearly 30-45minutes just to get what the order & it was worst during weekend or school holidays.

The ‘roti’ was quite tender in the middle & crispy at the outer side of it. And it taste even better with a combination of curry + ‘kicap’ dipping. If you can see in the picture there’s small presence of black color dipping in the middle of the curry. That’s what makes it taste so tremendously marvelous.

I must say, I just can resist the ‘roti’ & normally I’ll just fill my time ordering the take away meal with a treat for myself of having one in the restaurant complete with a glass of ‘teh tarik’. Well, one thing for sure if you dine in the restaurant the waiting time to get the set will only take less than 5minutes.
