Kaya Bun

$1.20 · 67 Reviews

You can have this for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and every single time, this never fails to disappoint as the homemade toasted bun with the spread of Hainanese kaya and slab of butter is just a magical combination. With a slight crisp exterior and a pillowy soft inside, the moment you sink your teeth into it will just make you want to go for the next bite sooner. Pair it with a cup of kopi/teh and this will transform any day to become better.

Haven’t been back to this place ever since the queues got so mad .

It used to be really quite nice and quiet 🤫 with manageable queues.

Like their white bee Hoon which is tasty and not greasy and you get to choose the type of egg that you like ( whether more cooked or more runny ) and the auntie at the service counter is always very accommodating.

The fluffy buns with kaya are faultless and needless to comment more .

What I found intriguing was the queue system .

After queuing for your bread and coffee - then you gotta queue at the bee Hoon / noodles counter for Your bee Hoon .

Isn’t that double queuing ? 🤣 not so time effective for a solo diner like me - no one to spilt the “ queuing work “ with .

I have been there countless times over the years, and each time my order will usually be the same few, as with the others in the long snacking queue. Besides the claypot ee-mian and sugar doughnuts, the latter with a fluffy texture and lightly coated with sugar, the one thing that you cannot miss out on ordering are their in-house baked buns that have been slathered with a layer of Hainanese kaya and a slab of butter added during the bread toasting for good measure. You can hardly find such classic coffeeshops these days, so head on down and get a slice of tradition.

This is what I would come back for! The bun was pillowy soft, but the exterior had a thin crisp layer - toasted buns should aspire to be like that. The Hainanese kaya was very coconutty, it’s good! This was a good kaya bun, the only thing is that I would have liked the butter to have been cold as opposed to the melty butter that was served.

Back here for their Kaya Buns and Donuts.

This place served the best kaya / peanut buns in town! Crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Drinks, toast and eggs are ordered separately. Old school traditional coffeehouse, crowded most of the time. Queues can be seen on weekend morning even before they are open for business.

Be prepared for long queues and scramble for the next available table. This old shop has hordes of diehard fans who will be queuing from 7.30am when they open. The toasted buns with kaya are the best, forget Toast Box and Yakun. Coffee is as Hainanese as it gets. If it’s available, do order the Claypot Yee Mee. Their chicken rice is normal.

I’ll be back for sure. No queues at this coffee shop is going to keep me away.

Most people might head over to YY Kafei Dian for their iconic kaya butter buns, but they have a special item that, quite literally, flies off the shelves once it’s out to the window. This sugared doughnut might seemed unassuming and you can probably find this at your neighbourhood bakery, but this is nothing like it. In fact, I do not know what magic they add into their baking dough or how they make these doughnuts, but each of them comes out fluffy and chewy. There is zero of that used oil aroma and the sugar coating complements these homemade doughnuts well. This is what I call, simple made into perfection.
