Recently, my cousins from Canada and Australia were back for their annual holidays and it's been one long feast with them almost every night. Since it was such a large crowd and it was extremely rude to snap lots of pictures of the food, I have been restraining myself. We did the usual tour around town for food - Chynna, Pik Wah and Overseas Restaurant for Chinese Food, Raju's for Roti Canai, Madam Kwan's for Nyonya food and Ah Wa's for hawker food.
I finally managed to snap some pictures of the chicken curry in a bun we had. It has been ages since I ate this but my cousins wanted to try it. Their kids loved it so much especially the bread. In the picture above, you can see the bun in it's full glory - glistening and brown from the oven.
The waiter will cut the bun at the sides and remove the bread to the plate. Underneath it is a foil packet that contains the chicken curry. There's two layers - a plastic bag and foil which will be cut opened for all to tuck in.
Here's a close up of the chicken curry in the bun. It's pretty watery but full of flavour. I like their chicken pieces as it's nice and tender. Dip the fried bread in the sauce and it's yummy. My cousin's kids finished the bread as they loved it so much.
You can also have herbal chicken in the bun if you wish and this is usually a pre-order dish or only available during dinnertime. Eating Asia also has a blog entry on Kampar's version of this which is called Roti Ayam. I believe this idea of chicken curry in a bun originated from Kampar and mine is the restaurant version. You can also get this at Cecil Street, off Petaling Street in Chinatown at the Tang Food Court.
