16 Must Try Food That Are Only Found At Pasar Malams

#13 Muah Chee

Addictively tasty, Muah Chee is a light snack consisting of sticky glutinous rice dough that is cut into bite-sized pellets and coated with fine peanut and sugar. This sweet mochi-like delicacy originated from Southern China where it is commonly eaten for breakfast. It is also considered a vegetarian food and is therefore often served in Chinese temples during religious festivals. Although there are several hawker stalls in Singapore selling Muah Chee, the night markets also offer decent servings for a quick fix.

#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.
