#13 Tea Eggs
The distinct aroma and deep brown appearance of tea eggs are unmistakable. Boiled in a spiced-tea broth consisting mainly of Chinese five-spice, soy sauce and black tea, the eggs originate from China in the Zhejiang region. It has become a common and nutritious treat not just locally, but also in Taiwan, Malaysia and Indonesia. This herbal snack is also known as Marbled Eggs due to the marbled pattern that appears on the eggs when you peel off the shells.
#14 Prawn Vadai
This popular Indian snack is basically a savoury donut topped with a prawn, but its origin dates back to 100 BCE-300 CE when Vadai was popular among ancient Tamils. The dough of Vadai used to be made with green bean paste, but these days the deep-fried fritter is made with normal flour and tastes just as great, especially when eaten with a green chilli.
#15 Roti John
Singapore’s very own omelette sandwich is a delectable treat for anyone craving French loaves with eggs, onions and minced mutton topped with tomato or chilli sauce. The snack was purportedly created during the 1960s in Singapore by a Malay hawker for an Englishman who was craving a burger. Since burgers were unavailable that time, the hawker improvised and came up with this fusion baguette, which he presented to his customer and said “Silakan makan roti, John”, translating to "Please eat this bread, John.” The name of the sandwich was born thereafter, with “Roti” meaning bread and “John” referring to Europeans.
