Penang Specials #3 : Best Tosai and Vadai at Lintang Pasar Dato Keramat

Those were the days when I was still working in Penang, the cheapest and best breakfast I had almost daily was an Indian food. It is Tosai and vadai.

The restaurant was a roadside stall which do not has a name and has been operated since my grand father’s generation and this has past down to several generations.

Tosai were prepared upon order and vadai are constantly fried to preserve the heat and crispiness.

This is A MUST TRY! Is the best you can find in Malaysia I would say.

This is a bit hard compared to the other one. Still it is flavorful with a lots of dal beans.

Idhili to be eaten with masala potato.
