Be blown away by this deconstructed Kaya Toast, part of Heritage Discovery Menu ($128++) specially crafted for Singapore Botanic Gardens Heritage Festival.

Chef Jason's tribute to our beloved Kaya Toast was a perfect finish to the meal! Luscious Pandan mousse sandwiched between crunchy muscovado sablé, a sweet symphony of coconut foam and gula melaka, plus refreshing pineapple sorbet to balance the flavours.


Interesting and delightful dessert course to round up the overall meal!

So good! Soooo good!! So so good! 😊

I appreciate that Chef Jason chose to end the meal with an homage to his Singaporean roots, with none other than the beloved kaya toast. And what an elegant and thoughtfully composed interpretation—smooth kaya parfait sandwiched between crunchy muscovado sablé, amped up with more intense flavours from the coconut-y kaya coulis, pandan snow, gula melaka espuma, balanced with a refreshing pineapple sorbet to keep the saccharine scale in check. A memorable, well-excecuted finisher.

But in the meanwhile, I'm staring at Chef Jason's interpretation of Kaya Toast, that's so Lemak and reeking of gula Melaka and got us all nodding in agreement.


I was absolutely blown away by the deconstruction of this iconic brekkie item into a dessert. It came as a surprise that we did not get the usual bread and coconut jam spread, instead these ingredients of pandan, coconut, gula melaka and muscovado sablé were transformed into something magically. I can't crave enough about that pineapple sorbet that's so tangy yet refreshing.
