The array of food in Malaysia is among the main factors which has made it a popular tourist destination and without doubt, the popular roti canai stands out.

The local favourite recently achieved global recognition again after it was voted among the 'Top 11 Best Dishes in the World' list.

The list was released by international food and lifestyle website TasteAtlas and lists the best dishes for 2023/2024.

According to the list, roti canai was ranked in second place, with Brazil’s picanha taking the top spot.

It also named the three best places in Malaysia to have roti canai, namely Nasi Kandar Pelita, Tg’s Nasi Kandar, and Sri Nirwana Maju.

Aside from Malaysia, the website said roti canai can be found in Saudi Arabia and Yemen, while a similar variation known as roti prata is usually found in Singapore.
