Roti Jala at Bedok Corner
In addition to nasi padang in the previous post, hubby decided to go for some roti jala. I like roti jala but I can't even remember ever having in Singapore. I don't see it much around or I haven't been looking hard enough. Anyway, this set (S$2.80) comprised four pieces of roti jala, a serving of curry with entire chicken wing, a boiled egg and token salad. The curry was luridly thick and spicy! It BURNS but in the way that makes you want more! A stark reminder that roti jala in itself is nothing if the curry isn't good.
I thought the roti jala (the griddle-fried, lacy pancakes or crepes) were a little underdone. Maybe I've been fed burnt pieces while growing up, but my image of roti jala has always been of that which are slightly browned on the surface, with the bonus of a crisp edge here and there.
The scent of jackfruit completely envelopes this stall. They sell mainly fritters (like banana, tapioca, jackfruit), satay and ayam penyet along with roti jala, sundry cakes, cookies and a couple of desserts. I should try the "Satay Power" next time!
