Back to my favourite y y cafe after they closed a short while for renovation .

Freshly toasted fluffy toast and kaya to start the day .

I love how smooth their tea was ... definitely not so cheap tea dust that most places use .

Got this instead of the donuts because they weren’t available till afternoon.

This is just a quick snack or to-go option but it’s not particularly delicious. The puffs weren’t warm, and the fillings weren’t that generous either. I preferred the sardine puff over the curry puff in this case as the taste of the filling was more prominent.

If you’re not in a rush, just skip this and get the Kaya toast as they prepare it pretty quickly anyway.

Finally got to try YY Kafei Dian and I was shocked by the long queue snaking out of the unit at 8.30am. This was actually the queue for the bee hoon and cooked food. There was also a queue for the Kaya toast and drinks but it moved much quicker.

I can see why the Kaya toast here has a following. The thick fluffy buns are grilled so they achieve charred perfection on the outside while retaining incredible fluffiness. The Kaya also isn’t too sweet. The bun comes with a slab of butter in between, but it was unmelted so I scraped it off. The Kaya toast here is seriously addictive and I can see myself returning here for more of these or the donuts (which apparently only come out in the afternoon).

I was a little disappointed with the yuan yang as was too milky for my liking. This overpowered the taste of tea and coffee, which is a shame because I’ve read other reviews saying the coffee is good.

Lemon Chicken Rice ($6.50):
Added a fried egg to go along with it. Just an average bowl of lemon chicken rice. Nothing really special. However, if you are here, you can try their claypot noodles with gravy.

Happy Birthday Singapore! 🇸🇬 What’s a better way than to enjoy a good nostalgic tea break with your loved one? After the closing of Chin Mee Chin, I guess this would be my choice to come to for an old school kaya toast treat.

It’s so satisfying just by looking at them toast the buns till fluffy with crispy edges, and the smearing of a thick traditional Hainanese Kaya. The donut was pretty decent too, not as greasy and sweet as the traditional types which I would have preferred, but that’s just the unhealthy me. I loved my yuan yang while the boyf was happy with his Kopi gao. Could almost imagine them filtering with the traditional coffee sock filter in those metal cans!

We had 2 kaya soft buns, 1 hot yuan yang and 2 eggs (not pictured) for a total of $5. The eggs were really good btw, perfect soft boiled eggs! The soft bun is slightly crispy on the edges and fluffy in the middle. A good alternative to my normal kaya toast breakfast (think yakun style).
