Roti Sai Mai

Here's a real dentist's friend. It's roti sai mai.
Roti Sai Mai
It's threads of sugar, rolled up in a flour pancake.

If you like sugar, this one's for you.

Ugh! That sounds both delicious and terrible. I would probably eat something like that on the sly.

Yeah. Well put. I was actually rather surprised at how not bad it was.

@Kaela, Ugh get you some culturalization girl gawking at things that look weird but taste good as hell. Don't judge a book by it's cover and if you only knew how good it was, you'd hate people who said emo things were nasty. Roti Sai Mai is one of the best things on earth besides, Thai Food, Khanom Buang, and Skydiving~

im not a native thai.. and believe it or not, this is one of the best things ive ever eaten..!!! i have tried many MANY cuisines guys, so me saying its one of the best, its really something..

@Kaela.. dont be afraid to not try something just because it looks different.. you may not like but remember it is someone elses food.. you probably would not like it if someone called the food you were going to eat terrible..! We live in a global world.. Learn to appreciate the differences.. It is the differences that make us unique..
