Restaurant Review: Rotiboy Bakeshoppe
Founded in Bukit Mertajam, Penang, Malaysia in 1998, the first Rotiboy was a neighbourhood bakery which baked fresh breads and loafs for household, kids to bring to school, cakes for birthdays celebrations, home-makers were our best friends. We've been growing ever since, and our brand has evolved into specialty stores and bakery cafe concept stores at over 220 stores throughout Asia.
"Rotiboy" has its beginnings in the bond between the founder and his nephew. They are close ever since the nephew's birth in 1996, with the nephew crawling to the uncle's bed every morning and the uncle, sometimes drinking milk from his bottle. One fine day, the founder's brother was teasing his nephew by calling him "naughty-boy" and that inspired " Rotiboy ". "Roti" means "Bread " Therefore, Rotiboy literally, means "Breadboy" , a name very suitable for a bakery in a multi racial Malaysia.
In essence ... We celebrate life ...
