I have tried their Roti Dog a couple of months back, but not their best seller, Roti Canai & Curry Sauce.
Since I vowed to try all the restos of Midtown, I thought that that time was the best time to do so. But alas! my friend Anjean doesn't like Malaysian food =(
What to do in a situation like this? Just order it to go & dine wherever he wants to.
Roti Canai (pronounced "chanai" not "kanai") is a type of flat bread found in Malaysia.
Roti means bread in Hindu & Malay. While the term Canai is derived from "channa", a mixture of boiled chickpeas in a spicy gravy from Northern India, which it was traditionally served with.
Banana Leaf's Roti Canai P78, was airy, soft, buttery & a little bit sweet. It's a cross between a pancake & a crepe, both in texture & taste. It also has a satiating smell emanating from it.
The Curry Sauce P30, on the other hand, has a strong Herby taste, though not spicy. It partners well with the roti canai.
An order of it is good for 2 or more roti canai, depending on how you dip it. As for me, I used my left-over sauce a s a dip for my tortilla bread & the rest I mixed with chicken chunks for an instant chicken curry.
It was said, that roti canai can also be taken with condensed milk, that I'm excited to try.
