Flying Dough at Mamak

This one is on my friend's "To Eat - city" list. We were thinking, now it's around 8:30pm, the quene outside has gone already? We were at the intersection waiting to cross the road and saw the quene was there but isnt lining up to the next shop. :) Should we wait or not? When we were at the front of the shop, it's not that bad. Majority of the people that we saw earlier were standing there to watch the chef flying the dough. The shop front has a clear glass window allowing the passer-by to see the chef making the roti.

After around 20-30mins of the wait, we were seated. As I have been to this place a few times, my friend has choosen the dishes for the night. We ordered the drinks first, as both of us were really thristy by that time. We ordered cham and teh 'O' ais limau.

The cham is half tea and half coffee drink. My friend said it is not as sweet as the teh tarik. The teh 'o' ais limau is ice tea with a splash of lime. This is one of my favourite drink, with a hint of lime taste. :)

The satay sauces is nutty and crunchy. It's not like the usual satay sauce that is from other places. We only ordered half a dozen which I feel it's not quite enough. But then I wanted to try more variety of the food, need to hold off my hunger for satay and its sauce! We used up the sauce at the end. ;)

The roti telur bawang is made with egg and onions. It came with 2 curry dips which one of them is a little spicier than the other. Both of the sauces match well with the roti. If you prefer more chilli, they also gave you spicy sambal sauce as well.

We have choosen lamb murtabak which the roti is filled with spicy lamb, cabbage, eggs and onions. The lamb version is not as tasty as the chicken which I have tried before.

How can we miss out the dessert after all these? hehehehe... so we asked the waiter for the menu. Since we have already tried the roti tisu, we would like to try something different this time. After narrow down to two choices, roti kaya and roti bom. We ended up ordered the roti kaya. Kaya is a traditional spread made from pandan and coconut.

We were so full by the time we finished the last dish. We walked out of the door with a smile on our face, another tick to the "To Eat" list. :)
