Ya Kun Kaya Toast @ Singapore

Just like how the Ipoh Old Town White Coffee franchise has spread like wild fire all over Malaysia, sprouting out in each and every corner that one can find, Singapore grew up with their own coffee expert.

When my friend suggested this place, i likened the name to Ja Kun (apparently in Hokkien, it means from the countryside) and i was made even more curisous because she made it sound like some chiq cafe.

Turned out she was referring to a humble franchise that serves nothing but bread and drinks.

Bread of all kinds including the sinful French Toast with Cheese, dipped with Kaya.

Got to wait.

Not for long, the coffee is indeed "kau" and at 2SGD a cup, its almost 1/3 of your usual Coffee Bean (which by the way is 5.80 SGD for a regular latte)

Their French Toast tasted steamed, you see the brown marks, the eggs and melted cheese. Nice but i still prefer my pan fried french toast, generous dipped/soaked in egg before it hits the pan. The Kaya though was really good but i am not sure to the extent that people can have this coffee and bread for lunch.

I also heard that their soft boiled eggs are HUGE as in much bigger than the ones we eat in Malaysia, this i didn't get to try (too full).

Now you know why the girls in Singapore all looked like they haven't eaten in months, surviving on a meagre looking sandwiches and coffee.

Available all over Singapore.
