Roti John

Roti John

Origin of the name Roti John according to Wikipedia : The origin of the ‘John’ in the name is allegedly due to the Western origin of the Baguette and the tomato sauce used in the dish. During the years of British Colonial rule, all Caucasians and Westerners were colloquially and affectionately referred to as ‘John’ in Malay,  and as such, the nickname of ‘Roti John’ (literally ‘John Bread’) was easily arrived at.
