This is an iconic street food in Singapore. It is a very simple omelette baguette sandwich. It all started in the 60s when there are still British soldiers in Singapore. They would visit this Union Jack Club in North Bridge Road just behind Capitol Cinema. Almost every one of them will pick up this omelette baguette sandwich from this Malay stall. It is like their supper or snack before or after a few drinks. So much so that when the owner, Abdul, whenever he saw a British guy, he would ask, "Roti (bread in the Malay language) John (which is a very common British soldier's name)?" So that's how a question became the name of this sandwich.

It is traditionally just plain eggs omelette baguette sandwich. Even the baguette they used is those similar to the Vietnamese's Banh Mi. Over the years and generations, Roti John had been handcrafted to suit the modernized tastebuds. The most famous version is the one with ground chicken and smeared with mayo, BBQ and chili sauce. I decided to make my own spicy BBQ sauce. I made a tomato ketchup based BBQ sauce with simple sambal, then mixed with Kewpie mayo. Everything tastes better with Kewpie.

This sandwich is usually served sliced into bite-size pieces. But who eats a sandwich with a fork and knife? In closing, I hope you will give this iconic street food a try and have a bite of Singapore's heritage.
