Chinese roti prata (canai) stalls are rare in Johor. Restoran Furong 芙蓉华人煎饼 is the third Chinese roti prata shop that I have come across, so far.
The popular Furong Chinese roti prata shop 芙蓉华人煎饼 is run by a mother and daughter team for the past 16 years.
Notice how little oil there was on the pan?
I tried a plain roti (kosong) and another with cut onion (bawang) stuffing.
The plain roti made with wheat flour and vegetable oil was thin and light, and there was hardly any grease, even on the plate. The roti was flakey and crispy, yet it was slightly moist and soft inside the folds. The roti was light tasting and it was gently sweet from the wheat flour.
The roti bawang was also crispy outside and was moist and soft inside with juicy sweet chopped fresh onions.
Furong serves three kinds of gravies for their prata. All are made from curry spices and vegetables, with no meat used. The curry potato sauce was the mildest - it tastes of potato sweetness and was not spicy. The spicy curry has a slight sting and was spicy hot - I like my gravy spicy hot.
The sambal chili was also nice. The sambal was sweet, salty and spicy hot. All the three sauces went very well with my roti.
Restoran Furong is an excellent place to have a Chinese roti prata.
