    Roti in the Morning!

    by lmkluque Updated Aug 22, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Every day while driving out in the morning we'd pass this guy on the street making Roti. At first I thought he was making tortillas. Then told that it was roti. It looks and tastes similar to tortillas but the size was much bigger. Also, my friends seem to use the word roti, for most types of bread.

    If you pass by this type of shop, stop and watch Roti being made, then order some for breakfast or to take with you for a later meal. It can be filled with something savory or sweet. How ever you like it.

    Favorite thing: Money changers tend to offer better exchange rates than the many of the banks around KL.

    They are to be found in or near most shopping malls and are they are also open late plus on weekends.

    Teh Tarik seller

    Favorite thing: The Tarik if translate into English is “Streching tea”. It is one of the famous Malaysian drink. Tea Tarik is also part of daily life of many Malaysian. It is nice to enjoy Tea Tarik in the morning, afternoon or late drinks at night. The tea is delicious with composition of tea and milk and blending into stretching the tea from one cup to another. The The Tarik making is also one of the tourist attractions.
