Roti Canai

Transfer Road Roti Canai | Penang Food

I believe this is a very common place for most Penangnites. A very famous place to have roti canai as breakfast. It’s located near the old main police station along Transfer road.

The stall and the dining tables are stretch along a few buildings just by the road side. Lots of people eat here, so you have to wait patiently for your roti canai to be served.

While waiting for my roti canai, I’ve order 2 half boiled egg and roti bakar as my ‘appetizer’. This roti bakar stall is just located next to the roti canai stall and the owner will walk around to take order from the roti canai customer.

Roti Bakar Stall
My favourite – half boiled egg with some pepper and soy sauce.

Half Boiled Egg
Roti bakar with some butter and kaya. I still prefer mine with butter and lots of sugar sprinkle on top (the one at Sg. Tiram of course)

Roti Bakar
The roti bakar is prepared in a way as what you’d do with satay.


You can also opt for your half boiled egg to be served on top of your roti bakar.

After waited for quite sometimes, finally my main course arrived. Roti canai served with chicken curry and lamb curry. The roti canai is slightly crispy.
Lamb curry is very spicy while the lamb meat is very tender. The best part is without any ‘lamb smell’.
Curry chicken which tasted not as spicy as the lamb curry. I noticed that the curry chicken is mixed with dal curry. To me, this one tasted not as good as the lamb curry but still it’s not bad.

This place is not suitable for those who are very hygiene conscious as this was served at road side. And you may notice that they used to stack one place on another when they serve you the roti canai. Hmm… but I just close one eye, not to think too much about being hygienic at this moment. Hehe
