Great news for South Londoners: legendary foodie favourite Roti King is opening a third restaurant in Lower Marsh, Waterloo, following the much-loved original in Euston and last year's successful venture into Battersea.
Opening on Friday 1st December, the site will have a relaxed feel with exposed brickwork and Malaysian street art, plus an open kitchen so diners can watch those iconic roti being made. All Roti Canai will be available with four different options of Kari - mutton, chicken, fish and dhal - as well as the stuffed roti Murtabak with a variety of fillings. Beef Rendang and Nasi Lemak are served with fragrant coconut rice alongside noodle-based classics including CKT (Char Kuey Teow, stir fried flat rice noodles with egg, prawns and chicken,) and Kari Laksa with egg noodles in a warming coconut broth, served with seafood and tofu. A key feature of the menu is a focus on plant-based dishes with as much flavour as their meaty alternatives, such as Pulled Shitake Rendang.
Head Chef and Founder Sugen Gopal says “There is nowhere in the UK that makes Roti Canai the way we do at Roti King. Our attention to detail, fresh British ingredients and a few secret techniques makes this the most authentic place to eat Malaysian food in the UK. I am beyond thrilled to see my cuisine and heritage becoming so popular in the UK and Lower Marsh is the perfect spot to bring Malaysian food south of the river.”
