Kaya Toast at Wang Café, Singapore

It’s a well-known fact that one of the best Singaporean breakfasts/snacks in existence is kaya toast.  A generous layer of kaya (a type of coconut jam), topped with a slice of soft butter, sandwiched in between very thin pieces of toast.  It's sweet and rich.  What's not to love?

A few pieces of this, coupled with soft boiled eggs and tarik (pulled) coffee, and you have yourself one filling breakfast/snack.  Ever since having a serving of this simple, but completely satisfying, meal when I first visited Singapore last 2007, it’s got me craving for it ever since.  

I usually associate kaya toasts with Ya Kun Kaya Toast coffeestalls (FYI:  We also have them in the Philippines.  Read my review about them here.), one of the more famous eateries selling this delicious meal.  But aside from them, another place that also serves a mean kaya toast is Wang Café.

Wang Cafe's kaya toast butter sets (S$4.40/Php145*), composed of the sandwiches, coffee, and eggs; taste almost the same as the ones sold in Ya Kun Kaya coffeestalls.  Looks almost similar, too (I do doubt if there ever can be any other way you can present this.  J

So sweet and delicious… *Sigh*  Heavenly…

I usually eat my toasts dipped in soft boiled eggs.

And the tarik coffee?  Let’s just say that ever since having my first cup of this drink, also last 2007, I’ve since started taking my coffee with condensed milk instead of just sugar and cream.

Another variation to this is their French toast, served with kaya jam and a slice of butter on the side (S$1.70/Php56*).  Just as tasty and satisfying as a regular kaya toast.

This usually doesn’t come in a set so you’ll have to pay an additional S$2.90 (Php96*) for coffee and 2 eggs.

Kaya toasts, the stuff sweet dreams are made of.  J

  1. Hindi ba weird taste yung butter and jam? I haven't tried it yet.

    1. Hindi naman. It's actually a really good combination. =)
