Local Breakfast: Kaya Toast

Food — By mariannerogerson on December 10, 2010 at 6:09 am

The much-loved kaya is a Singaporean jam made from eggs, sugar, coconut milk and flavoured with pandan, and is a real favourite breakfast time treat for local Singaporeans.

This sticky sweet delight is usually served on charcoal-toasted bread with lashings of butter, and should ideally be enjoyed with soft-boiled eggs (and we mean SOFT boiled eggs – they might be a bit too runny for some so you can always ask for them to be done a bit more).

To enjoy your breakfast like the locals do, break the eggs into a bowl, smother them with pepper and dark soy sauce, dip in your toast, and wash it all down with a cup of thick black kopi-o.

This local delicacy is available from modern coffee shop chains around town (such as Ya Kun Kaya Toast or Toast Box), but for a more authentic experience, head to Killiney Kopitiam (the original is on Killiney Road), famous for dishing up its French toast version since the 1950s.
