Roti Pisang

I never would’ve thought your regular roti canai could become extraordinarily tasty if you added bananas, and drizzled chocolate sauce over it. Well this was one thing i learned on the streets of Bangkok some two years back. Fast forward a few months to February this year roundabouts, a roti outfit was established at our usual Waterfront haunt in downtown Tutong. I asked the roti guy if he had Roti Pisang and he looked at me as if I had three heads! He obviously didn’t know what I was talking about, and he even asked me if people would really like it, with an annoying smirk. Fast forward again to June, and I saw the same guy this time making roti at the Tutong Hua Ho foodcourt. And guess what? He now had Roti Pisang on his regular menu!! I guess I was a little miffed, but not really- secretly I was rather pleased I could now have my Roti Pisang. But don’t tell him it shouldn’t just be bananas in the roti…
