when on Transfer Rd.


Amongst other good food spots, which appeared on the GPS was Roti Canai Transfer Road. I am not kidding you. Even I was surprised that such things are recognised by the GPS. Determined, we stayed up after Subuh prayers in our quest for what Transfer Road potentially had to offer.

Donned in our yesterday’s clothes, and about 650 metres later, we finally arrived! Boy, am I glad I booked a hotel, which is so centrally located. Good food comes easy, and we didn’t even have to give up our parking spot! Oh yes! I walked!All 1.3 kilometres to and back.

Penang skyline in the wee hours of the morning. We were giggling like school kids when we saw people wearing Batik to work! Mentang-mentang kami tengah cuti! Hahaha.


My principle when eating out at a new place is simple – order the specialty. That way, you can gauge how good the others on the menu might be.


So, this is what we ordered. Roti kosong with sambal daging.

My verdict? A little too soggy for my liking, but it was still delish! The next time I go (chewwah, dah berangan nak pergi lagi), I will certainly try something less soggy. Like roti kosong without the gravy or better still, roti telur, which I heard is roti kosong served with a sunny side up. Not quite the roti telur we’re accustomed to, eh?

would you just look at that yummy foamy teh tarik! uuuu!

But the teh tarik? The BOMB, I tell you! Make no mistake about that. This I will drink again and again and again if I could!

And these are the humble premises on which the famous Roti Canai shop is located.



Shy to comment? Well, never mind! Your reactions mean the world to me! Make me smile today :)
