I have been requesting (begging, really) mama to bring me to this place. yeah, i know, what is so great abt this place that i want to go so much right? well well well, my dearies, you are in for a treat! this place sells THE chapatti la, let me tell you. i have never tasted chapatti so nice and so fresh and so damn HEALTHY! (no additional gooey oily fat added).
ok, if you really don't know where this place is, you will have trouble to actually find it. this is due to the fact that this place LITERALLY has no name and it's open doors are facing the backstreet of JALAN TUANKU ABDUL RAHMAN, kl. since this place has no name, i have taken the hounour (and liberty) to name it KEDAI CHAPATTI SEDAP TERAMAT SANGAT KAT LORONG BELAKANG or to make it easier for those who suffer from short term memory, i will name it, espcially for you guys, KCSTSKLB....ooooo kkkkk.... still too long. ahhhh... whatev la, janji kedai ni ada jual chapatti sedap kan?
as you enter, you are welcomed by the workers who are preparing the chapattis. as you can see, there are 2 hot plates there. i have no idea why they have to have 2 hotplates to make their chapattis. i guess this is the secret to making it fluffy inside and crispy outside. first they place the raw dough on the bigger plate, and as the thing has already puffed up, they quickly take it and put it on the 2nd hotplate to crisp it up. the heat as you pass this point is unbearable but the taste that comes after it is definitely sought after.
on the left is the chicken with the masalah. on the right are the fishes swimming in the curry.
the chicken has finally emerged from its masalah and the fish was caught from the sea of curry. the indian-style cabbage was...ermmm.... indian.
muka di kanan: kelaparan tahap ketua kampung yang baru sahaja menang pencalonan kawasan adun (apa aku merepek nihh?)
muka di kiri: nak nasi.....:(
other than their famous chapatti, they also sell roti canai (for morning only), rice and other condiments (for lunch onwards), and the usual mamak type of drinks (no shake, no juice. just the normal chai, coffee, milo, horlicks, limau... the usual lah).
but seriously, people come here mostly only for the chapatti. if you want to eat rice, tempat lain so melambak kan? if you want to eat roti canai, also can go other place. but if you want to eat chapatti, HERE is where you should be heading. FRESH, HOT, YUMMY and HEALTHY!
they are very the famous among the big big peeps. shall i name some?? like urmm... they cater for government functions that include the PM, the ministers and whatnots. kira they are the godfathers of chapatti la. only can get them by the backway (literally....). the owner is a lawyer by profession. he comes around in the mornings and then go off to do what he does best, practice law. if there are any big shot function, he'll take the day off and make the chapattis himself on site. how uber cool is that?!??!
anyway, the bill came up to RM33.50, yeah, abit of a shocker right? but check this out, these were what that made the bill:
- 7 chapattis (RM1.20 ea)
- 4 fishes in curry
- 2 servings of chicken bermasalah
- 1 serving mutton curry
- 1 serving indian style cabbage
- 1 less-sugar ginger tea with milk
- 1 bad ass iced milo
- 4 satisfied stomachs to boot!
location: if you are on jalan TAR, heading towards the dataran merdeka, you'd see some carpet shops on your right at the end of the road. there will be one turning to the right just before the traffic lights at the dataran merdeka junction. take that right turn. this will lead you to the back alley. go along the alley and you'll see a lot that has no name with the chapatti hotplates. stop and (don't just) stare. park your car/ass and go have some CHAPATTIS!!!
don't forget to bungkus oso k.
