Raju Restaurant, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia…roti prata from heaven

I can never get enough of the prata/canai here and still hold it nostalgically on my tastebuds. Fact remains that they are doing something right. There’s hardly a day when their tree-sheltered tables aren’t full.

They serve the traditional banana leaf rice, roti canai and roti telur. The roti canai is this restaurant’s trump card with diners making a beeline for the delicious soft, fluffy on the inside, crispy on the out, flat breads. And they are not oily. If you eat roti, try their plain ‘ikan curry’, ayam goreng (deep fried chicken) and squids. There are all cooked a’la minute. They offer a pick and choose station of your favorite meats and fish. All pre marinated and placed in a tray. The seafood selection is good and includes pomfrets, mackerels, flower crabs, squids et al; the meat selection features chicken, its myriad parts (including gizzards) and lamb chops – and have the cook fry them up in his cauldron of hot bubbling oil.

Raju’s as it’s commanly known to the locals, is an ‘above the average’ price for Indian cuisine in Petaling Jaya. They have a sign up to justify their prices (see pix below). This is the true truth and I say it as it is.
