Aiks, My First Roti Canai of The Year

Hahaha could you believe it? Half a year have gone in 2009 and I just had my first full one piece roti canai. Other times snipping off other people's plate not counted!!!

On Monday, Capt'n Hook ajak me to eat roti canai for dinner and I said yes. He was shocked cos I don't usually eat roti canai plus I was still recovering from my cough. He asked me a few times "Are you sure?" hahaha adoi.

Anyway we went to our usual haunt Al Amnah at Selangor Mansion, Masjid India. Capt'n Hook ordered his usual Roti Telur Bawang. For myself, I wanted something different from the usual stuff hahaha yes but how different can the roti turn out right, Capt'n Hook always said that I'm always the one that menyusahkan saje!

I saw "Roti Canai Special RM2.30" on the board and proceeded to ask them what it is. The server replied "Roti canai banjir tambah 2 telur setengah masak atas". Wowwww... yummsss I think I already liked the special a lot and ordered one. I can't resist having my roti shredded up with dhal poured all over and a dollop of sweet sambal on the side PLUS topped with 2 half boiled eggs!!! I know this is not something new but I've never eaten it before as I usually prefer having thosai or chapati.

Roti Special (RM2.30)

Are you salivating now?

Hehehe darn delish, I tell ya! My only mistake was not ordering the roti to be freshly done. Mine was from one of the many plain rotis stacked up to almost 6" high pile where the steam have made the roti turned a bit soggy.

Dinner was great, even greater washing down with a glass of KL's best teh tarik!
