    With such a promising name, this restaurant is rather a pilgrim to Murtabak-lovers. The menu itself is a revelation with scrumptious choices such as chicken, beef, mutton, deer, sardine and vegetables. Moreover, you can stack up the meaty layers, single, double or triple. Man vs Food! Where are you! To further rumble your salivation, slid in a layer of cheese between the spongy dough and savoury meat. Slicing through the meat block is heavenly; the gooey cheese just oozes out, rounding up a flawless bite.

    Opt for the cheese murtabak

    The first Nasi Kandar restaurant in Penang that has been churning out Nasi Briyani and Murtabaks that is second to none. Upon entering the refurbished eatery, undulating stacks of meaty pancakes toss around the large scorching griddle. Multifarious fillings are available such as beef, mutton and prawn yet the chicken version trumps other counterparts. The mélange of meat and egg layer are toothsome and enveloped by thick and pillowy dough that complements the whole chomping experience. Dabble in their dhal and pickled onions, this moment imprints in your memory. Plus, plan accordingly as a single portion does fit for two bellies.

    Raffe Restaurant

    Among the pride of Penang Nasi Kandar, this bustling eatery also serves one of the best murtabak in town. Their mutton version tops the scorecard; the coarse meat is packed with flavours and blissfully blanketed with crispy and thin dough. To further enhance your meal, pair them up lip-smacking curries that are made with hand-grounded spices, as Raffe have zero tolerance to pre-mixed masalas. It’s a meal that is worth spending extra hours on the treadmill.

    This comfy restaurant hits the sweet spot between authentic Indian food, attentive service and charming atmosphere. You don’t usually hear Indian eateries being vaunted for Murtabaks yet Chettiar’s Tiffin Cafe breaks the frame of mind. Their Murtabak set comes with two thick and dense meaty servings, somewhat resembling pancakes and paired with onions and addictive curry. The dough is thin and dry, bundling the chicken meat that is bursting with rich spices.
