Roti canai is available in numerous stalls around Penang and each stall has its own variations such as the roti sardin, roti telur and the paper-thin roti tissue. They serve it with their own curry dishes, from the simple dall curry to the meaty curry.
A great place to get a bite of the roti is at the famous landmark in Transfer Road. This famous roti canai stall has been in operation for decades next to an old abandoned warehouse.
This stall has more than enough curries to complement the roti canai – mutton, beef, chicken and dhall. Chicken curry comes with tender pieces of meat in flavourful gravy. However, most customers prefer the tender mutton curry which is relatively spicy. The aromatic mutton is a crowd favourite. Customers can also order the curries without the roti canai.
However, the best combination is kuah banjir! The torn pieces of roti is served laden with moderately spicy curry, with wonderful aroma of spices. While many customers like the roti with curry, there are also others who prefer the roti topped with poached eggs or the roti telur instead.

The roti telur tends to be quite oily, but nonetheless tasty with egg flavor and crispy edges.
The roti canai is great to go with the teh tarik, available hot or cold from the neighbouring stall.
The flatbread is freshly prepared. Service is fast with the many workers helping around, with each manning a station – from twirling the dough, folding to grilling it over the flat pan.
Breakfast here is an indulgence — soak in the atmosphere and enjoy the slow pace of life in Penang. It is a favorite for many Penangites and tourist and is usually packed with customers waiting for a table as there are only a few narrow tables available. The stall opens daily except on the first three days of Ramadan and first day of Hari Raya. Click here for the Map Location.
