Best Thosai in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

Thosai, a renowned South Indian dish that is widely celebrated among Malaysians, commonly for the start of the day. The thick rice batter which is adroitly fermented and infused with lentils is graciously gyrated over a sizzling griddle, forming a paper-thin, delicate and flavourful crepe. It’s usually accompanied by a range of titivating curries and chutneys for a thrilling spice ride. Oh yes, it does not only look like a plain canvas, but it acts like one as spicy potatoes, onions, egg, lashes of ghee and many other condiments are known to bring it a notch further. Foraging for the finest in Johor Bahru? Keep scrolling and salivating.

    Agneey's Cuisine

    Agneey's Cuisine is easily spotted with the mahogany awnings and huge signboard along Jalan Titiwangsa. This commodious restaurant is habitually filled with hordes of clienteles all yearning to chomp down a sheer spread of Indian cuisine. And among the headliners are thosais, which come in various forms that are equally satisfying. The plain crepe is pleasantly good but you'll have to look beyond if you yearn for that additional oomph. Either generously filled with spicy potatoes or infused with julienned onions, spices and green chillies, nothing is short of savoury. The platter is then filled to the brim with curry, coconut and spicy chutneys.

    Bindu Curry House

    This widely vaunted restaurant offers a true Indian gastronomic jaunt in a charming and sophisticated atmosphere. If thosai is your pick, you're absolutely in safe hands. Couple of variants are on the menu but the standout has to be their rava thosaiThe batter is flooded with diced onions, green chillies, carrots and crushed black pepper, then dropped onto the griddle in a slapdash way. This forms tiny pockets that offer a tad of crispness at each mouthful. Dunk the rugged-like crepe into their homemade chutneys and curry of your choice for optimal satisfaction.

    This famous restaurant has never failed to hog the headlines in Johor Bahru, offering mélange of South and North Indian through the food and ambience. Their thosais are among the best sellers on the menu - either loaded with potato masala or onions, glazed with ghee or the simply the plain version, it's pretty tough to pick the winner. The gilded brown surface of the pancake is crispy and the interior is lacy. Their freshly grated chutneys just elevate the whole pick and dip experience. The thosais do come in a big portion, yet if you’re craving for a bit of everything, opt for their breakfast platter -  just adorn the picture above.
