Best Roti Canai in Kota Kinabalu

Written by Updated ago

Roti canai is without a doubt the simplest version among our wide array of national cuisine. It's made with flour, egg and water and done so in a very localised pancake-manner. Most people would just call it the Malaysian pancake. Goes great with curries and sambal as well. So without further ado, here is a list of the best roti canai in Kota Kinabalu.

    Taj Curry HousePork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Taj Curry House is your everyday mamak with a good variety and grasp on local favourites. One of their popular pick is definitely the humble roti canai. It is made with enough elasticity and crispiness that when dipped into a saucer of curry, it feels simply amazing. Despite it being so simple, it still is pretty comforting to dine here.

    Tips

    You can ask them to cut your roti in squares - making it easier to dip in curry.

    Things to expect

    A pretty clean mamak.

    Best with

    Fried chicken, rendang and teh tarik.

    Krishna Fish Head CurryPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    It is without a doubt that Krishna Fish Head Curry is something to die for, but do you know that their roti canai too is pretty damn good as well? Like every other curry place, a good set of roti canai along with its various fillings should compliment it well. Much like Krishna's roti canai, it's nicely crisp on the outside with enough elasticity on the inside and works great with Krishna's set of curries.

    Tips

    Cash only.

    Awesome fish head curry and banana leaf rice in a comfy setting.

    Sadong Indah and Catering is a fairly large place that is held at the corner of a shop-lot. There are plenty of things that are recommended to order but you should definitely give the roti canai a shot. After all, it's not exactly expensive. The dough of the roti canai is pretty good with several doneness to choose from - crumpled, chopped or normal. Their curry too has decent amount of flavour and spice that many would enjoy.

    Farvis Curry HousePork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Farvis Curry House is home to great nasi kandar and various other delectable dishes. One of which is the roti canai. With most of them done a little crispier than most, their version of the roti canai feels less guilty when you're having it for supper. After all, having one wouldn't make you full due to the thinness of it. The curry too is pretty good, but not mind-blowing.

    Tips

    Occasionally they have fresh coconut as well.

    Things to expect

    A mamak with both indoor and outdoor seating.

    Best with

    Teh tarik or 3-layer tea.

    If you're looking for some great Malay cuisine, Azlina Sulawesi will not disappoint. Among the variety of dishes available, their roti canai too is well worth the try. It's done slightly fluffier than most, but still gives a nice crisp edge that many would seek after. Though quite surprising, their curry is actually pretty modest with decent flavours, but nothing amazing.
