I know this is a long shot, but does anyone know of a place that serves Malaysian roti cani in the Dallas area?

    Try Lion City Chinese Cafe in Plano (2109 W Parker Rd, northwest corner of Parker and Custer). It's a Singaporean/Malaysian restaurant. I've never ordered roti there, but I think it's on the menu. If not, there's plenty of other good stuff. The service is slooooow, and the whole place is very casual, but the food is good, and authentic. Call first to make sure they're open because the owners sometimes close if they're going out of town ,etc. (972) 867-8803

      I've seen some other threads recommending this place as the only (?) Singaporean place in town. I am eager to check it out. Thanks.

        Lion City does not have it. I took picture of the menu and the white boards on my visit, I do know that Secret Recipe does have it. Most of the dishes are Malaysian and a few Singaporean.

        Secret Recipe in Carrollton has roti canai. Ask them for the Malaysian menu.

          The new Malaysian Restaurant in Plano, Blue Ginger Garden, has Roti Chanai. I was there a few weeks back and the food and service were both really good. It is located very close to Lion City Cafe (they do not serve Roti).

          Check out their website.
