Madinat Zayed: Bread Shop

It doesn’t take long to discover some of the best shops in a small city like Madinat Zayed.  The other week as I was waiting for some photocopying to be done I came upon this wonderful roti shop.

You too can have authentic handcrafted bread for only 1aed (0.17GBP)! The table below the price list is the accounting tally sheet – companies which settle their account at the end of the month write down their daily order on this sheet – there must be at least 40 such accounts, some ordering hundreds of roti over the month!
