Monday, 6 Feb 2017 : Roti John = long bread coated with scrambled eggs with minced meat (beef or chicken), topped with cabbage and drizzled with a generous amount of mayo.
In Melaka, apparently Roti John is one of the food that has an different version from KL.
There’s a differentiating factor for the roti john in Melaka. Normally prepared with sardine/minced meat and eggs. The Restaurant Barkat version was much nicer as it is prepared with lots of pounded anchovies. Crispy and aromatic- flavorsome!
It is devoid of the usual mayonnaise, cucumber or any other ingredients and instead came served with a chilli dipping sauce . The filling is much more savoury than the KL ones, thanks to the recipe which calls for anchovies and parsley.
It’s hard to locate if you are not a local as the location is really far from the town area. However if you use WAZE or GPS it is still accessible. Other than roti john, there are
Ayam Golek” – rotisserie chicken as well and it is only imperative that we sample one too!
Tanjung Kling is about 13km away from town center. Restoran Barkat Roti John version of Roti John is different from the one we get in KL and thus there lies its charm and the reason why it is “uniquely Melaka. If you observed from my pictures above, there are no lettuce or mayonnaise added into the sandwich. Its taste relies heavily on the minced anchovies and the parsley which gave it the fragrance while other spices contributes to its savoriness.
