Kaya Toast

Kaya Toast

On the hunt for the best kaya toast: crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside with a good kaya (not too eggy, coconutty or sweet)!

While the kaya/ butter portions and taste was rather nice, the toast could have been more crisp. This ended up pretty meh.

The toast was crisp and light - q similar to yakun standards; the bread itself tastes different but still nice to me. Kaya was rather sparse but butter portions were generous. Their kaya is not too sweet! Am pleasantly surprised, I’ll add it to my list of places for good toast.

I’ve reviewed ya kun before, but I would like to just give a quick shoutout to the West Mall branch as they consistently make good toasts - crisp bread & an optimal kaya to butter ratio. I’ve never been disappointed!

Ya Kun serves one of the best kaya toasts in Singapore! I love the thinly sliced crisp toast filled with great kaya and butter slabs; their steamed bread is really soft and delicious as well.

I feel that the quality is dependent on the outlet though. The food prep people at the Raffles Place outlet make good toasts but in some outlets, the toast is either not crisp or the kaya to butter ratio is off. But most of the time they get it right, thankfully!

The toast here has a crisp outer, with the right proportions of butter and kaya. It’s an unexpectedly good place for kaya toast! The steamed bread is fluffy and nice too, but I prefer their kaya toast :)

The toast was not crisp enough but I’ve had better toast from this fun toast outlet before, where it was more crispy. The kaya is not bad! Bun was average. Probably would not revisit, unless I need a quick breakfast (their outlets are pretty conveniently located).

Wholemeal bread was used, didn’t really like it. There was a decent amount of butter, but the amount of kaya could have been more generous. The toast was crisp, but it was too thin for a satisfying crunch. Personally not a big fan of their toast!

Enjoyed both toasts! I liked that the traditional toast was crisp, but the kaya taste wasn’t v prominent and there was no cold butter slab.

The orange ciabatta toast was clean tasting and I liked it! There were orange zest bits within the ciabatta which provided an interesting flavour. The kaya was more pronounced in the ciabatta too.

Coffee was decent!

The soft, crisp, charred buns was delicious! Together with the cold butter and kaya which was not too sweet/eggy/coconutty, this made for a satisfying treat.

Was really impressed with the toast here! It was ultra crisp which I really like.

Not a big fan of the homemade kaya though, it was too lumpy for my liking, and didn’t have a distinct taste. The french toast was decent, but what I would really come back for is the classic kaya toast :)


The kaya toast was relatively crisp and came with a pretty thick cold butter piece. The homemade kaya was nice, texture is slightly similar to tong ah’s but not as lumpy (which I appreciate), and it had a light pleasant taste and wasn’t too sweet! Would have preferred if the toast was more crisp :)

Coffee is interesting! A bit sour and has q a strong coffee taste bc I ordered kopi o.

Toast was crisp with a generous square of butter. Kaya was decent; it had a good balance of pandan and coconut, and not too eggy nor sweet.

The soft bun was not bad too - slightly crispy edges with comparatively softer inner parts. They sliced the bread into halves so there wasn’t the ‘soft pillowy centre’ effect, but I’ll take it.

(Preferred the toast over the soft bun!)

Kopi o kosong was q strong and bitter, but in a good kind of way. It wasn’t the kind of bitter that makes u wince. Will revisit :)
