Beef satay roti wrap, $6.50
My "Asian style kebab" arrived on a disposable plastic plate (come on!! That is just lazy. Points off.) The roti itself was nice. They are pre-made and warmed through on a flat plate. The satay beef was also nice - very mild, very peanutty, and the beef my favourite way - slow-cooked for so long that it was so tender you could shred it with a fork. But I just couldn't get over the shredded iceberg, bits of tomato, and overpowering onion rings. I kept having flashbacks to my teenage years eating gut-mangling souvlakis from Hollywood Palace in Richmond, which came with the exact same toppings. Maybe if the filling was a posh baby lettuce mix I could have dug Roti Ria, but this time I just wanted "authentic". It might be a slippery concept, but sometimes you just dig your heels in and refuse to slide any further.
