Finally visited the refurbished Chin Mee Chin, and it took me long enough to come to this traditional yet charmingly nostalgic coffeeshop. The Kaya toast set doesn’t look like what you’d expect, the classic square toast, but was made with a round bun that was just slightly toasted, but well-buttered and soft. A nice alternative to the other kaya toasts out there! I personally did not enjoy the yuan yang I got together with my meal though, for the texture was a bit too thin.

Rate:🌟🌟🌟

pretty pricey for a small bun, but the otah to bread ratio is still generous. ive been having CMC’s otah buns since i was a kid and this sure brings back great memories.

the place has underwent a renovation and its less gloomy and stuffy, with added outdoor seats. prices have increased but standards have dropped a little. the coffee is still rich, kaya still has the same rustic home-made texture, and eggs perfectly jiggly. but the bread was neither warm nor toasted. and it just somehow lacks that smokey flavour it used to have.

I ordered their kopi set (comes with Kaya toast, kopi and egg ) and luncheon meat bun.
It’s not as good as I remember, the toast not really crispy, the egg one is ok one is runny . The luncheon meat bun not as soft as I expected and the luncheon meat is half size only 😅.
💰$4.9 for toast set and $2 for luncheon meat bun.

Breakfast at @chinmeechin.sg
Kaya Toast Set (S$4.90)
Served with 2 soft boiled eggs and teh C
Topup S$0.50 for iced version
Why the roti not crispy one?
Can’t really taste the evaporated milk in the drink. Kind of weak too.
Why only 1 piece of butter on 1 side of the roti?

Sugee Cake (S$2.30)
Plain Cupcake (S$1.60)
Lovely buttery delicate cakes.

Hainanese coffeeshop 真美珍茶室 on East Coast Road. Went there on a weekday morning, hence the queue was reasonable. Waited about 15mins to get seat.

I tried the signature traditional charcoal toasted bun with authentic kaya and a thick slab of butter reasonably priced at $4.90. The petite size Chocolate Peanut Butter Tart priced at $2.20, caught my attention, decided to grab one and tried. To my surprise, the tart is really good. Thick rich chocolate with slight saltiness from the peanut butter.

Tabao-ed their otah bun home. They were pretty good. Big piece of otah wrapped with the bun.

Overall experience: The kaya and butter ratio were reasonable and the service staff was friendly and proactive. I probably find CMC better than YY kafei
