I went to have breakfast in town this morning at a new place located near Ukir Mall. It's location is just right beside Kopitiam, Ukir Mall. The place was recommended by my Mom's friend. They said that the tosei there tasted so nice, so me and my Mom went to check it out after our visit to the hospital.
And to our surprise, it was really delicious. The tosei itself was just nice in taste....not too sour like some I've tasted before and the chutney was good too....but the best of all was the dhal! Special recipe from Kerala, India it seems! Well, that's what the tosei guy informed us. He said, his wife is from Kerala and in Kerala, that's how their dhal looks like and that's how they make it over there. Thick and light yellow in colour mixed with it's special spices. It tasted so good that you can even eat it on it's own.....(sounds like Gardenia's tagline doesn't it???? hahaha). :D
The couple are actually from Tandop.....and they were invited to do business at the new place by the owner of the restaurant because they are so good in making tosei. It seems that back in Tandop, their tosei are usually sold out by 8.00am!! So fast! That's how good their tosei is! I really think that they are God sent. :D Thank you God for sending them here to serve us yummy tosei haha! :D
The only thing missing in this wonderful tosei is it's lack in crispiness...I like my tosei crispy and hot. But this one is a bit soft on the inside and lightly crisp on the outside. Oh! How can I forget the podi!! Yes! If there is podi, that would make a huge difference in the tosei eating experience hihihi! I haven't had podi with tosei in a long long long time. Miss it so much. We told the tosei guy that if his wife can make podi for us, it would be so great! So great I tell ya! haha!
Hope to get the chance to go eat there again one of these days ;).
