Roti Canai in Padang Besar...

roti canai
The prices of the different types of Roti Canai in Padang Besar.
Roti Canai is a favourite in Malaysia. It cost RM0.80 per piece in Kangar, Perlis. But, it might cost you RM1.20 in Kuala Lumpur.
Guess how much it cost per piece in Padang Besar, Thailand?
6 Baht. (RM0.60)....
And... it tastes quite different from the one in Malaysia...
I think you should taste it yourself...

Have a nice day...
