Roti Jala

I’ve eaten differet kinds of roti all over the world, but had never even heard of Malaysian roti jala until I hit Penang. I found it for the first time at the breakfast buffet at the Shangri-La Rasa Sayang where I was staying…


"Jala" means "net", which you realize is the perfect name for this flat bread once you get a glimpse of what it looks like…


Roti Jala has a crepe-like texture made by drizzling a thick batter on a hot grill into these doily-esque shapes…


This Malaysian delicacy is savory however, typically served with curries and chutneys, as you can see here…
