·3-min read

On the hunt for the best murtabak? We can help with you that. Check out our guide to the best murtabak in KL and PJ.

If you’re a fan of omelette pancakes, trust the murtabak to come to the rescue. Popular in Southeast Asia and the Arabian Peninsula, the dish varies in terms of name and recipe. Depending on the location, the name Mutabbaq means ‘folded’ in Arabic. In Malaysia, the mouth-watering meat foldovers can be found in Indian Muslim restaurants and street stalls. Ideal for dinner or supper, the classic Malaysian murtabak is a square pancake stuffed with minced meats, egg, garlic and onion. Crispy on the edges but fleshy in the middle, the murtabak is complemented with a serving of curry or pickled onions to balance out the flavours. Feeling hungry?
