Roti Canai in Kuala Lumpur

Roti Canai in Kuala Lumpur

Oh, Indian food!

I find it absolutely irresistible. After a grand total of four days in Kuala Lumpur, I had already turned myself into a regular at one particular establishment – Restoran Anuja.


Located directly across from Puduraya Bus Terminal, this was the first place I set foot in after arriving from Melaka and it won me over instantly. Restoran Anuja had a simple menu, friendly service, and fresh tropical fruit juices – the perfect combination after a long journey.


Kuala Lumpur has a large Indian population and when it comes to their cuisine, that translates into roti, roti, and more roti. For those of you who have never tried roti before, it is a flat bread eaten across much of South Asia. It is usually accompanied with various curries, but I’d argue that the roti itself is the star of the meal; let’s not forget all the different kinds you can order up: plain roti, cheese roti, garlic roti, banana roti…

At 2.50 Ringgits for a plate of cheese roti with curry, I was only paying the equivalent of $0.80 to feast on one of my favourite dishes. And I didn’t eat just one platter, oh no, I went for seconds. Here is the video proof of how superb this place is.


p.s. Lest you think I’ve only been eating Indian food while in Malaysia (big foodie faux pas), let me affirm that I have tried many Malaysian dishes including a refreshing bowl of cendol.

What’s your favourite Indian dish?
