Roti canai vs Farmer sourdough

It’s going to be a late dinner with D in Bangkok later. Our scheduled departure time is at 5pm, and arrival at 6pm (7pm Malaysia time).

I made a grocery bread-run to Tommy le Baker, with the intention of getting some breads for ZH’s light dinner on board.  Also, might as well get their Roast Beef Sandwich for lunch. I thought I can kill two birds with one stone, or so I thought ….until the ‘stone’ toinked to the mamak next door.

I caved in to a local delight. My Roast Beef Sandwich turned into roti canai with kari ikan (fish curry) dippings, and a cup of teh tarik kurang manis (less sweet), a classic combination for me. Heavenlicious!


Roti canai vs. farmer sourdough

The thing about Malaysia cuisines is there are always something different to please our palete. Malay, Chinese, Indian, Nyonya, East Malaysians, Indigenous, and other foreign cuisines. Thai cuisines, there are less varieties vs. ours.

Roti (bread) is also available in Thailand, but it is too sweet and oily to my liking .. yukes, they even serve it with condensed milk and sugar. Sweetness overdose, avoid like the plague. Sweet-die-me!


Roti, Thai version



Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
