Roti Mataba

I have a new favorite– something that we could easily buy in the market near us. It’s called Roti Mataba! Funny how “mataba” in our language means “fat.” Umm, this does really make you fat– if you have too much of it, that is.

It is mostly sold by Thai Muslims in markets, stalls and restaurants here in Bangkok.

This is how Roti Mataba looks like.. inside are vegetables and ground beef or chicken

What makes it yummier is what you eat roti mataba with– these fresh cucumbers, onions, ginger and chilli with sweet and sour sauce

There you go… it’s ready to eat!

I so love the mix of spicy, sweet, sour and the tasty filling inside.  I have read about food reviews of Roti Mataba and always, food bloggers say it’s one of the tastiest foods they’ve ever had in Bangkok!
