Yes. I can eat this every day and never get sick of it. BTW What's the difference between Roti Canai and Roti Prata? Anyone knows?

I know this is not the Hameediyah restaurant. It was featured in the Sunday Star where it mentioned about the murtabak and the lovely curries they served. My stomach walls are starting to flap.

This is one of my favourites of Kayes photos! I think it was taken in Little India.

Little I know there is no diff. roti canai and prata; just locality parlance. In S'pore they call it Prata, whereas in Pg and maybe KL its Canai. In the West its known as unlevened bread e.g. Italy, Spain, Guatemala, Costa Rica (where its called pupussas). I have an unrelated question; can anyone help: Where and what schedule for catching bus from Penang to Haatjai South Thailand? Thanks in advance

Kayes, thanks for this gem of a pic. Am so glad I came upon it as I was asking on another thread about the "Roti Canai" man at Air Itam just a couple of days ago. That's because the most vivid memory my older son has of Penang is watching "that magic man" make "magic bread" with his "magic hands". That was his first-ever trip to Penang and he was 3 years old at that time. Ever since then, every time he's visited Malaysia, he has to have his "Roti Canai" fix. Would it be OK if I took a screenshot of this pic to email to him, with a link to this page so he can check out what else he's missing out on? He's in Ireland. Smile

Phoebe, sure, go ahead but I think it will only make him feel hungry Smile


David, sorry I missed your question. Plenty of mini buses ply between Penang and Haadyai. A few travel agencies in Chulia Street can book a seat for you. The first one leaves about 8 am from Chulia Street.

Thanks, Kayes. That's the whole point. Making him drool over that pic might just be the trick to persuade him to join his younger brother and me on our 2010 trip back. Wink

Kayes, several years ago you posted pics of a restaurant that I'm sure was on Penang Street. The pics showed an elderly Indian lady preparing some long, tubular, bread sticks (I don't know what they're called) which were served with some great curries. Can you identify the name of that restaurant, if it's still around?
