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.

Indian desserts.

Top left are the chili powder mix which brings lots of kick …. top right is sugar, bottom left is dhal vegetarian gravy and right the coconut chutney gravy. All these are unlimited refill and don’t waste.

The tosai in front were the ghee tosai with 2 vadai drenched with a lot chilli powder.
