Banana Roti off the Streets of Bangkok

Makin' Banana Roti

Banana RotiDespite how great that beef salad was, the portions at that place were very small, and I was still craving a little more. Fortunately, a street vendor selling banana roti was waiting just as we exited the train station tonight. I actually bought some last night too, but I liked this guy's much better, as he made it a total cholesterol bomb with not just a crapload of oil, but also some butter, eggs, sugar, and condensed milk (not to mention a little bit of crispiness around the edges). This hit the spot, and only cost 20 Baht (US$0.50).
