Short Talk:

Czech lost to Ghana 0-2. Can you believe it? Si beh Ghanasai.

World Cup Roti Canai

Interesting news in the papers today.

You gotta hand it over to roti canai makers in Malaysia for always managing to come up with creative names for a seemingly simple piece of pancake.

A few years back I've only heard of Roti Canai (plain), Roti Susu (milk), Roti Telur (egg). These days they're churning out new names as fast as Nokia churning up new mobile phones.

*cough*lgchocolate*cough*

An enterprising restaurant owner in Penang has banked in on the World Cup fever and came up with a range of roti canais named after teams in the World Cup 2006. Among them Roti England (potato and butter), Roti Brazil (banana and chocolate), Roti Korea (crabsticks).

What is Roti France? French toast?

That's all fine and dandy, because these are all popular teams in the competition.

But what about those lesser-known countries? Do they have a Roti Trinidad & Tobago? What about Angola or Tunisia? Who is gonna make a roti canai for them?

See, I don't like favouritism or elitism. I think the qualifying teams for the World Cup 2006 all worked hard and all deserve to have a roti canai named after them. No one should be left out.

So I've taken the liberty to create my own recipes for some of the lesser-known countries competiting in the World Cup.


First up, is a roti named after a first-time qualifying nation from Africa,
Roti Togo!

Delicious and flaky roti canai topped with an ornamental tribal mask, this roti is sure to make the African drums in your tongue beating through day and night.


Next, is my tribute to the richest oil-producing nation in the world,
Roti Saudi Arabia!

This is one roti canai soaked with so much cooking oil, you can build a freakin' oil rig on top of it.


If that's neither of those are your taste, maybe you'd like to take a bite at...
Roti Iran!

You've all heard of Roti Bom, but have you ever heard of Roti Nuclear Bom?

I tell ya, it's gonna be such a blast.

Unregistered

FIRST BITCHES

Unregistered

ah...miss roti canai alot...

Unregistered

Actually they have it few years back already but now the enterprise restaurant commercialised it. I remember last time I was just kidding by order a Roti Bosnia satu!!! My other friends did the same thing by order other countries name. And u know what? They really made it! Supprise? The only thing different is the ingredients only, as what I see was similiar concept as Pizza ingredients and they applied it on roti canai.

Unregistered

you're hell funny man.

Unregistered

Can we have Roti Kennysia?? Any suggestion for the recipe??

Registered

In Penang, most mamak shop will display their list of rotis such as roti bom, roti tissue roti hong kong, roti san francisco (wonder how they concoct such names) , roti disco. By the way, roti pisang or roti banana taste really delicious.
Best name so far is roti JANTAN, comes with two egg but minus the banana.

Unregistered

Many years back during the early 90's, do any of you remember the Mona Fendy trial. She was convicted of murdering a Dato mazlan who was chopped to 18 pcs. Well, during the trial, Mona Canai was very popular - you guessed it, the roti canai was chopped to 18 pcs and served!

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

I thought this post too forced and terribly lame. At least ya sense of humour was still intact with the lgchoc thing.

Unregistered

Roti Kenny, made of cheese and ham ahahha... nice entry man..

Unregistered

> Roti Kenny, made of cheese and ham

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Now THAT is funny, Cheryl. No offence, Kenny.

How about Roti Korea, with nice bits of dog inside. RM5 for purebreeds, RM2 for mongrel meat. Yummy.

Unregistered

If it's Roti Malaysia, it should be Roti Kosong

:P

Unregistered

Unregistered

Registered

Unregistered

I wonder what roti Australia would look like - maybe with kangaroo meat and a bomerang on top.

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

My god, Pratas of Mass Destruction!

Unregistered

My god, Pratas of Mass Destruction!

Unregistered

Roti Nulcear Bom..haha.. good one

Unregistered

Your comment about Iran is distasteful. It is thoroughly insensitive. Iran has repeatedly told the world that it has no nuclear bombs and do not plan to built one. And in one stroke of a pen or a type of a key, you have undone all the hard work of our brothers in Iran. It is not fair.

Unregistered

you should have roti saudi arabia with loads of petrol over it

Unregistered

We've already had so many varieties of PRATA (that's what we call it) until I also scared to try!!! :S

But creative lah they try to hype up with the soccer season thing, especially now everyone's out at the kopitiams hogging the tables. Grrrr!

Unregistered

Lame....

Unregistered

this really makes my day...

Unregistered

u r the lamest.

Unregistered

Haha~ Penang RULes!!! To bad i m in OZ now... T_T

Unregistered

Hahaha...
Interesting one...

Unregistered

it's 'roti PRATA' lah, dei...! Singapore and Malaysia can't even agree on what to call this fried-dough, so how to talk about bi-lateral issues? Haha

Unregistered

sniffs.hungry.

Unregistered

nice post! i especially like the roti saudi arabia...

Unregistered

I read shifa's comment. Can't help but go "Awww. :( *sniff sniff* :( Poor Iran. :("

Unregistered

Have you heard of Tau Sah Naan and Lin Yong Naan? Apparently someone had the sudden initiative to try, in PJ.

Unregistered

hahaha,....
good one kenny..
:D

why crabsticks for korea though...
:S

roti USA = burger

Unregistered

cameron,

Roti USA = decorated with blood red stripes, made of blood.

Unregistered

WHAT A FUCKING BRAINLESS ENTRY...ONLY IDIOTS WOULD FIND IT AMUSING!!!

Unregistered

roti japan
roti canai stuffed with sushi? eww..

nobogy goes there to eat...lame place.

Unregistered

mahathir is hilarious...

Unregistered

Roti Japan is synonymous with sanitary pad - jipun loti, ha ha ha.........

To Shifa: Cool it, if you can't take blatant humour. If you cannot differentiate sarcasm and accusation, duh, retreat to your shell please.

Unregistered

ZOMG!!111 KENNY VOTE FOR ME!

Unregistered

Man, you're heavily inspired by SixthSeal.com aren't you? Your entries are starting to read like his old archives except he doesn't PhotoShop. I think you plagarize from a lot of different blogs for ideas, but the SixthSeal.com connection is unmistakable.

Registered

surfer, can I write anything these days without being accused of plagiarism?

Layout-wise mine is definitely inspired by him... as well as 2,841,697 other Movabletype-powered blogs out there.

Unregistered

Hahahahaha

Unregistered

Kenny, I felt so hungry after looking at the pratas.. (Stormed off to kopitiam to have some now)

Unregistered

Cheeky roti photos. Heheh. My friend last month ordered a roti tampal in kl, which came with a medium sized cockroach lying dead on top of the roti but under the telur. Any ideas on the country of origin of such bizaare delicacy? Yum Yum!!!

Unregistered

Mahathir, you better watch out, i'm coming out from my grave to choke you. You disappoint me!

Unregistered

Mahathir, you fucking brainless animal... I thought only people like PAS will say something like that... u really dissapoint me... Tonight I'll awake from my grave and pinch your face...

Unregistered

lol..what's this?

the return of the prime ministers??!!

Unregistered

Sighs. If you intelligently challenged people want to accuse a good blogger like kenny of plagiarism, you should come up with valid, reliable, concrete proof.

Not implying vague statements along the lines of," oh you sound somewhat similar to.."

Even if Kenny got inspired by many other blogs, he built upon that inspiration by forming his own imaginative ideas, didn't he? That doesn't really equal plagiarism. Have you ever thought of the notion that two people, or two groups, might think up the same idea independently?

Before you want to fling vehement accusations at someone, re-evaluate the facts and remember to be logical in your arguments. *roll eyes*

Unregistered

Actually there is lot of others type of roti canai. it is not just roti kosong, roti susu, and roti telur. But there is roti pisang, roti banjir and so on. sorry la i don't know how many variety of roti canai in Kuching, but for sure there is lot of variety.

one more thing, it is not a favoritism as it is upon the person to name their products. What they favor of or not it is depends on them

Unregistered

Eh kenny, i don't understand why Brazil gets bananas and chocolate. I understand that nuclear bomb one lah, but COME ON. BANANA AND CHOCOLATE?

Like, MEH?

And the pictures are lame la kenny... hahaha


AND I SWEAR THE PRATA SHOP NEAR MY HOUSE (ok, the prata SHOPS more like) NEVER SELLS ROTI SUSU!!!!

WHERE GOT ROTI SUSU ONE?!?!?

Unregistered

I gotta say this, you the ROTI BOMB!!! hahaha.. Kudos

Unregistered

roti kennysia? hmm.. must be hairy...

Unregistered

I think I read this THREE years ago on SixthSeal.com and I know you read him then too.

http://www.sixthseal.com/2003/05/upgraded_dextroamphetamine_sul.html

Kenny replies: I seriously do not see the similarities at all. Wait, are you trying to advertise his website for him?

Unregistered

haha, maybe because banana is yellow and suits the yellow jersey of brazil. but chocolate.. hmm, maybe like the player's skin colour ahha..

Unregistered

Sorry for late coming....
Guess who's back?

PM's back,
