Best Thosai in Kota Kinabalu

Written by Updated ago

Thosai is another great way to be guilt free when you're craving for some roti. Made mainly from fermented batter, the total calories within it is far less compared to roti canai or with its various fillings. The fermentation also resulted in a slightly tangy taste, which is both appetizing and great to pair with some curry. All and all, we understand that you might have odd cravings in the middle of the night, hence here is a list of the best thosai in Kota Kinabalu.

    K Sanba's Curry House

    K.Sanba's Curry House is a fairly small place that is famed for their banana leaf rice. However, another thing worth going for is definitely the thosai rawa. It's done with a nice crisp layer on top while still remaining a slightly chewy interior. It is also a great pair to the fish head curry that is well packed with flavour and spice blends! 

    Tips

    Cash only.

    Things to expect

    A rather small place with limited seating.

    Best with

    Teh tarik or milo ais.

    Price

    RM3.00 to RM5.00

    Sri Latha Curry House is another popular place to get your daily fix of banana leaf rice, especially when it comes to their side of mutton and squid curry - delicious! Anyway, their version of the humble thosai too is not too bad. It's thin and crisp with a good balance of chewiness, it is pretty delicious indeed. Goes great with their mutton curry too!

    Salam's Curry HousePork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Salam's Curry House is another popular mamak that offers a humble but delicious serving of thosai. Served relatively larger than most, their version of the thosai isn't exactly crisp nor crunchy. In fact, it's pretty dense with a good bite. It also has a nice tangy flavour that goes really well with curry or mint sauce, which is provided on the side. In short, it's a simple yet delicious dish to have. 

    Tips

    Cash only.
