Malaysia's murtabak takes its name from an Arabic word for "folded," though this etymology glosses over the entertaining way in which the dough is flattened and flipped. The stretched-thin, translucent dough eventually encases minced fillings featuring mutton (rarer than reports suggest, and not available at this stall), chicken (shown), or beef (my choice this evening, rm 2, about 65 cents at the time). Whether my murtabak was further folded inside a newspaper wrapper, or downed on the spot, I leave you to guess.
