Roti Tisu @ Kayu Nasi Kandar

Kayu is my favourite place to be for supper, it's air conditioned and the roti's are made to perfection. It is situated behind the Vistana Hotel. Though it is a mamak restaurant, but 70% of their customers are chinese.. The place is even crowded when football season comes.

One of their famous for is the 2-3 feet tall Roti Tisu @ RM4.00.

We came here with kk's grandparents and parents as they were in Penang that time. They were surprised by this Roti Tisu which needed 3 plates to put on.

If you are wondering how it taste like, its very thinly and crispy flour made (mix with other ingredient) snack. We are eating a piece of Artwork, not many mamak stall could make such a tall and firm to its position roti tisu.

Other than Roti Tisu, Kayu serves variety of delicious Nasi Kandar, you'll be surprise Penang ppl's apettite are huge! There are still many ppl queueing up to have their heavy late night supper of Nasi Kandar. I'll take more photos for posts to come.

J2Kfm: Yep, eating together is much more fun! Kayu is the one near vistana hotel, before reaching Bukit Jambul Complex.Their lunch time is indeed very few ppl coz they oni sell nasi kandar during d day! Its more to a night life down here!

Selba: Roti tisu is what i opt for when i wanted something sweet and light! Kayu's is the best so far as it is not too sweet for my liking^^
