Roti and Mataba

Banglamphu's Phra Athit Road is where restaurants keep changing hand; however, opposite the Prasumain Fortess a Thai-Muslim roti joint remains a landmark for decades.

Roti-Mataba is named after two of the restaurant's best selling items - roti and mataba. Also available and good are massaman curry, green curry (during Rama V regime, green curry served with roti were so fashionable among the nobles), samosas, khao mok gai and fish cakes.

I like green curry too.
And I like to eat curry dipped with French Roll Piggy Bread(in the Vietnamese Restaurant).

This little restaurant near Khao San Road is pretty unique and good. After too much spicy salad and tumyumgoong, a meal switch to roti is a real treat.

Yes, I was also told about the same the roti with green curry once being very popular in the old time. I guess I might have passed by this area only once or twice. :)
