Home Food Reviews Puteri Erra Roti John, Melaka


This Chinese New Year, rif and I did a lot of eating in Malacca. We’ve been stuffing our faces since we arrived at 8am. While most of the places are our regulars, we did check out a few new places, including Roti John Puteri Erra at Medan Selera Bunga Raya.


It’s pretty easy to locate this food court; Medan Selera Bunga Raya is opposite Majestic Hotel, behind Putra Specialist Hospital. We got there just before closing time and managed to try the Roti John Biasa (RM2.30 for ½ portion, RM4.50 for full portion) and Roti John Special (RM3 for ½ portion, RM6 for full portion).


Roti John Biasa


Roti John Special – similar looking, but with more ingredients

Both looked similar, but the special version comes with more ingredients so ordering depends on your level of greed and stomach capacity. The bread was better than the hotdog buns used at many roti john stalls – almost like a baguette or French loaf.



Eating roti john can be a messy affair because the bun often gives way because of all the sauces. But Puteri Erra’s Roti John is a composition of crispy bread and saucy centre. The filling comprised fish flakes, mayonnaise, thousand island sauce, cabbage and onions. Good stuff!



Both the Roti John Biasa and Roti John Special were tasty, but I personally prefer the biasa version. If you want to taste more ingredients than bread, the special version would suit you better. After stuffing my face with the roti john, the apple juice (RM2) was a refreshing finish.

wah, this looks a lot more generously stuffed and better prepared than the roti john that i used to munch in malacca (somewhere in a warung in klebang, but that was more than a decade ago, so it might not be there anymore). cool name too for this stall that u visited … wonder if there might also be a puteri hang li poh roti john anywhere! :D

Speaking of Melakan food, have you tried the prawn mee at Yung Lai Siang? My friends said the prawn mee soup is very rich but not overly salty and oily like what we typically find. And I heard they serve awesome piping hot curry puffs too!!! Previously it is located in a pre-war shophouse behind Putra Specialist Hospital but I heard it has recently relocated to a new shoplot in Jalan Tamby Abdullah. Perhaps you should try it when you happen to be in Melaka next time and share with us your findings;D
