Best Roti Jala in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

Among the trump cards of Malaysian culinary, Roti Jala always draws a decent crowd at any time of the day. Literally translated as “Net Bread,” the batter is first dropped like swirls onto a sizzling griddle which solidifies the batter, and then the net is pleated pleasantly, forming a bed of spongy and crispy interplay. A bowl of chicken curry usually teams up this ochre cue bread. Mediocrity is rampant, therefore, we have sifted the finest Roti Jala that wins your heart with the first bite.

    The façade and interior of the restaurant just teems with nostalgic flourishes, somewhat like a revamped colonial house with artistic lightings, arched windows, and ornaments. Staying true to the name, they have been dishing out authentic Nyonya cuisine, from lip-smacking curries to myriad of kuihs and Roti Jala. What sets them apart is the net pancake is made to order and has a tad of crispiness draping the spongy layers within.  Rich chicken curry, brimming with chunks of tender chickens and potatoes tags along the impeccable treat. Ticks all the boxes for a perfect Roti Jala feast.

    Redtro Cafe

    Truly a hipster hunting folk’s need, it’s a lovechild of red backdrop astutely adorned with retro portraits of artists, brands and quotes stamping onto the wall, in short, one of the most Instagrammable spots. The menu comprises a melange of Western and local delicacies, where their roti jala is among the standouts. The lacy pancakes are elegantly rolled like batons and served with a bowl of treacly curry as well as a wallop of fresh greens that adds a layer of crunch. Dabble in the curry for each mouthful and pair your meal with a glass of lathered tea, which just tingles the aftertaste.

    This regular breakfast joint is where locals make their mark to kick start their day, gunning down whopping choices of authentic Malay delicacies. Never denying breakfast should be heavy and savoury to get you going all day long, if you think Roti Jala is rather a snack-like meal, think again. Here, the lacy pancake is lusciously layered, resembling like a yellow brick and leaves you with a little space only to sip their teh tarik. Accompanied with addictive chicken curry with smatterings of chicken and potatoes, it’s a daily obsession for many.
