Selera Selatan in Johor Jaya (Rosmerah) is my favourite place in JB now for roti canai (or prata in Singapore).
The roti is so crispy it's almost like a cream cracker but thicker and more moist.
Then, there is the spicy fish curry and sweet spicy sambal chili with lots of anchovy flavour to add spice to the savoury sweet crispy roti.
Besides the roti kosong (plain), we had a roti telur (with egg). The egg yolk and white were spread between the folds of the crispy pan fried, slightly flaky bread. An eggy taste was added to the same savoury bread along with sweet spicy curry and sambal chili.
We also had a roti plaster - it's two crispy roti kosong stacked one on top of another and then crowned with a fried egg with runny yolk. The eggy flavour is more pronounced than in roti telur and it has a more interesting contrast of textures. One of my favourite ways to eat roti canai.
Friendly owner chef Encik Farul has been serving roti canai for over 20 years.
Encik Farul's griddle is relatively dry as he uses peanut oil and only sparingly.
The result is heart friendly crispy roti canai that tastes even better than those that are practically deep fried in a puddle of ghee or margarine.
I unconsciously popped over to the next table because I couldn't resist taking a picture of these gorgeous sunny side up eggs. I am
->> My favourite roti canai in JB now - plenty of spicy sweet flavours and a nice crisp without the grease. I love the runny eggs here too.
