Roti John (15/26)

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.
