Roti-ness is next to Godliness
Yesterday I discovered a way to savor all the wonderful things I'm missing in American cuisine and today my gastro-thoughts are chanting American food, Schmerican food. I just returned from the Chow Kit Market where I ate my first—and subsequently second—roti canai [Malay translation: to knead bread]. Dipped in copious amounts of curry, locals eat this doughy goodness for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Me? I'm also adding hors d'oeuvre and dessert to the list of appropriate options. Heavenly!
