Roti Road – Footscray

Roti Road, appears to be a franchise. It always seems decently frequented by diners. We decided to have the Sambal prawns and Salt and pepper tofu, with steamed rice. Both were very well cooked. The Sambal prawns, obviously had a little heat and kick to the dish, but still very enjoyable. Beans were tender.
Salt and pepper tofu, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, with the right amount of seasoning.
Probably not my automatic ‘go to’ Malaysian restaurant, I would say Laksa King and Chef Lagenda would be first up, but definitely not a bad runner up.
No alcohol is served, however BYO is allowed.
All in all, I would come back and try other dishes again if I was in the area.

This is a local haunt of mine. It’s a cute little corner cafe, tucked away, with a calm, relaxed ambience. My personal favourite choice on the menu is the trout croquettes (18.50). It has a golden brown and crunchy coating, filled with trout, mash potato and herbs. Yum. Poached eggs are done just a little runny as one would expect. Hollandaise sauce is great, but the clean, crisp salad is the key necessity on the plate to cut through the richness of the double whammy of egg yolk and hollandaise sauce. I did love it when they had pomegranate in the salad, they seem to have cut that out of late.

I also had the buttermilk waffles with strawberries, nutella, vanilla ice-cream, coconut (and I asked for the white chocolate on the side) (13.50). Waffles were nice, thick and done perfectly. Enough, but not too much nutella, which was good.

All their dishes are fairly large portions. Coffee and the service is always decent here. Overall a family and dog friendly place I would return to again and again.
