Eng Loh – Peanut Butter Toast

   Posted by: CK Lam   in George Town, Hawker, Penang, Roti Bakar

Peanut Butter !!! There are many varieties of peanut butter. I have been using peanut butter as a spreader since ……can’t even remember when. I loved the Skippy creamy ones although I sometimes have the extra chunky version too. Another favourite of mine is Smucker’s black current and strawberry. They make a tasty spread for bread as well as cream cracker.

Besides making peanut butter toast at home, my hubby and myself like to eat those sold at Eng Loh coffee shop located at Church Street. The bread is known as Taiwan Roti and the thick slice is sold for RM3.50. The main ingredients is margarine, peanut butter and crushed peanuts. The bread is the ordinary fresh white bread which is sliced into very thick pieces. It is toasted with a layer of margarine. Peanut butter is then spread on to the melted margarine with crushed peanuts sprinkled on top.

The warm crusty bread and the stickiness of the peanut butter is delicious. On the first bite, it tends to stick to the gums…. and glue the jaws together for few seconds.

And not forgetting a hot cup of kopi-o kau that goes hand in hand with the toast. Super breakfast :P

I just came back from Eng Loh Kopitiam, after reading CK Lam’s blog yesterday (hahaha! super fast, huh?).. tried the peanut butter bread… wow.. this is jolly good! CK, what you said is correct, the thick peanut butter tend to stick to the gums and jaws but it’s worth it.. hahaha! FYI, they called it as Taiwan Roti @ RM3.50 for one thick slice (exactly like the one posted in CK’s pic)! I ordered one ordinary kopi, and it’s thick and not very sweet.. hooray, up to my high expectation! If one order the ordinary peanut better spread, it’s only RM1.80.. :)

Peanut butter is not good for health – it can cause cancer – pls reduce the consumption – thanks.
