What If the Roti Canai at Hutong Were an Outfit?

Hutong, the new iteration of Betelnut on Union Street in Cow Hollow, is a super-hot place to dine these days, according to the SF Eater Heatmap, and just about every food-obsessed person we speak to in SF (which is everyone).

We are carbohololics around here at Racked SF, so naturally we were drawn to Hutong's roti canai, a delicious Indian-influenced flatbread often found in Malaysia and Indonesia. We were also inspired by the lovely, mellow colors of the bread and it's accompanying sauces. It reminded us of a pale-colored Chanel suit, but we tried to create a slightly more economical version. Behold: Hutong's roti canai as an outfit.
