When in Malaysia, you must sample Roti John, a MALAYSIAN STRET FOOD which is both popular and tasty! We sample Roti John at Roti John Titiwangsa arguably one of the best Roti John stalls in Kuala Lumpur. Roti John is basically an omelette sandwich. A soft baguette or French stick is halved and slapped onto egg which is cooking on the grill which then coats the bread. The eggy bread is then filled with shredded cabbage, mayonnaise, a protein of your choice such as tuna, chicken, and beef, cheese and a range of other condiments. The sandwich is then cut into pieces and topped with fries. SO. GOOD.

How does it get its name? The story goes that in the 1960s an Englishman asked for a burger from a hawker. With no burgers on offer the hawker crafted a sandwich filled with mutton, eggs and onion. All foreigners were referred to as ‘John’ and so he handed the sandwich to ‘John’ saying: "Here’s your roti, John” and voila! The Roti John was born.

A must try when in Malaysia!

Roti John Titiwangsa
199, Jalan Datuk Keramat, Kampung Datuk Keramat, 54000 Kuala Lumpur
Open Monday to Saturday
