Best Roti Naan Cheese Tarik – Ehsan’s Shah Alam
Malaysians love their roti — Roti Canai in the morning and Roti Naan Cheese Tarik in the evening.
The origin of this delicious flatbread we call Roti Naan comes from India.
But the outlet that makes the best Roti Cheese Naan Tarik is not at an Indian or Mamak Restaurant, but a Pakistani Restaurant in Shah Alam, Selangor!
Have you heard of Ehsan’s Shah Alam restaurant?
If you’re a big fan of Cheese Naan, you would have heard of this restaurant or been here before.
Ehsan’s Shah Alam Restaurant offers vibrant Pakistani food.
This restaurant is one of the most famous restaurants around here.
The bestseller at this restaurant is the must-order – Roti Cheese Naan Tarik which is on the cover of their menu.
The Roti Naan Cheese Tarik
Of course, this is not the usual Cheese Naan that you find at the Mamak restaurant.
I am sure you’re like me and wish you could find a thicker Naan with a filling of quality instead of sliced Cheddar Cheese.
The Roti Naan Cheese Tarik bread is thick with good quality Cheese.
When our order arrived, the moment it was cool enough to handle, we pull the bread.
The cheese is very interesting and it’s very long!
What are the types of Roti Naan Cheese Tarik?
There are two types of naan cheese available –
- Roti Naan Cheese Special
- Roti Naan Cheese Garlic
Both Cheese Naans are equally delicious.
The size of the lattice and its versatility of the Cheese as you pull makes it unique.

I will use the pieces to scoop up saucy main dishes.

Why is Roti Naan so good?
Naan is made from Maida flour, a finely milled refined white flour from the Indian subcontinent, made from wheat – it closely resembles cake flour.
Maida has used extensively in traditional flatbreads.
Roti Naan uses Maida flour, yeast, oil/butter sugar milk.
The fermentation and resting time adds to the softness of the bread and makes it yummy.
