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)!

Aunties were nice and friendly but unfortunately the kaya butter bun was rather average. Bun is chewy but could have been more crisp outside and fluffy inside; the kaya is nice even tho it’s the generic kind; could have been more generous with the cold butter as it was so little it melted quickly. Would rather have the kaya toast from Choon Seng coffee - they use generic white bread but it has better execution!

Love their crispy thin toast! It’s super crisp and the type that the crumbs fall everywhere. Butter is cold and v generous, kaya is lumpy but I can overlook that bc of the bread.

I usually get their crispy toast, but I find their kaya a bit too lumpy for my liking, and could be more fragrant. Good thing is, their kaya is one of the least sweet ones I’ve tried. Anyway, I tried their steamed bread on a cold rainy day and it was vv nice!! I think it is the best bread option to go with their kaya. Butter is cold (they place cut butter slices into a bowl of ice) and generous as usual. Was v satisfied with this breakfast!

I liked this! The toast was crisp outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. Different from their crispy toast but still enjoyable. Their kaya is on the lumpier side and not rly my fav but I really do like the way they do their bread, tho I think I still prefer their crispy toast!

This was quite alright, toast was decently crisp, kaya didn’t really make an impression. Although it was quite average, it still managed to satisfy the kaya toast craving!

Found this a little drier than usual - the bread is usually softer and more fluffy. Peanut butter was p fragrant, smooth and creamy, but I think I still prefer kaya butter - the butter adds a richness and some moistness that I prefer.

This toast was really good too, it’s lightly crispy outside, but rather soft and fluffy inside. The kaya is great as usual, and again they give a lot of butter. Between the two, I prefer the French loaf, but give me this anytime and I’ll still happily eat it.

Ahhh this was super good. The French loaf had those nice crisp edges bc of the browned skin of the bread, which I absolutely enjoyed. The bread is more dense and substantial than regular toast so it’s actl quite filling. I like the Hainanese kaya here, it’s sweet and aromatic without being overly saccharine. They’re super generous with the butter here, perhaps a bit too much butter for my liking but I can’t complain. The butter drips out when I bite into the bread anyway so it’s all cool. Come early for this! Once I arrived at 10+am on a weekday but it was too late, they had already sold out of this.

Yakun toast may no longer be $2.40 ala carte, but this one still is! Standards are a little inconsistent here tho, I’ve gotten limp and non-crispy toast before, but thankfully this time the toast was rather crisp and toasty. I like the kaya here - it’s pretty aromatic and is extra shiok with the butter bits spread throughout the toast. A satisfying breakfast!

The bun was pillowy soft, while the exterior had a thin crisp layer - all toasted buns should aspire to be like that!! The Hainanese kaya was not bad, not too sweet, nicely caramelised, but I wish that it was more consistent - the first time I had it, it was quite fragrant, but on my second try it didn’t taste as good. But the combi of the kaya + butter was very good! The butter added just the right amount of flavour and richness. Just be sure to eat it immediately / separate the buns if not it’ll melt too quickly bc of the heat from the buns.

The toast was lightly toasted, rather soft & fluffy, but it had a strange buttery taste, a bit like packaged butter bread :-( Kaya was nice tho, fragrant and sweet. Kueh was pretty soft, not bad too.

Rather decent, it’s crisp and is sufficiently filled with kaya and butter. It falls slightly short compared to my favourite crisp kaya butter roasts from Yakun & May’s Kopi Bar (at sixth ave), but it still satisfies!
