light fluffy and crispy roti canai from Valentine Roti with Joshua Redman jazz just made my night
Joshua Redman rocks big time! We watched him last night at the MPO (Thanks to the Bald Eagle and Lyrical Lemongrass!) and it was excellent. I reckon I have become a big fan of his music. If you love jazzy tunes with saxophone, bass and drums, it is your last chance to catch him tonight at the MPO. Believe me, you should not miss it.
Despite being very "filled" with all that great music, the tummy was craving for something else, i.e.roti canai at that late hour. It was been ages (I reckon about 12 years ago) since I dropped by Valentine Roti at Jalan Semarak. Ironically, I was introduced to this place by an Australian expatriate who lived around the Bukit Tunku area. Being so long ago, I have vague memories of good roti canai here and was surprised to discover how incredibly good it is.
Here the texture of the roti biasa extra garing (crispy in Malay) is similar to the fluffy stretched out versions you get when you order roti planta. However, unlike roti planta, this is non greasy hence it is a crispy, light and fluffy version (90 sens per piece). I also loved the dhal, sambal ikan bilis and curry sauce they gave on the side. We enjoyed it so much, we had to order an extra one more to share between both of us. Aside from rotis, they also serve mee goreng, nasi lemak in packets and etc. While it is different from Raju's roti canai, I like this especially late at night when I want something light but not too filling.
Stor No. 1
(Pork free. Open from 4pm to 2am daily. Place is diagonally opposite Wisma Celcom and along Jalan Semarak or Gurney Road. Can't miss the brightly lit stall on the side of the road and their sign that claims they are the best roti canai. Turn in from Jalan Tun Razak and make a u turn to get to this stall.)
