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)!

Kaya toast wasn’t crisp enough, kaya was alright. There was a few small pieces of cold butter! My dad said the coffee was okay but not amazing. Probably wouldn’t get either again, but will try their french toast next time.

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.

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 kaya toast here! The bread was ultra crisp which I reaaally like.

Not a big fan of the homemade kaya though, it was too lumpy for my liking.

The french toast was decent, but nothing to shout about.
