Ya Kun – A Chain, But Still Tasty Kaya Toast
Ya Kun is a chain of Singaporean breakfast restaurants that are all over Singapore and also has branches in Indonesia, Taiwan, Korea, Japan and the Philippines. They serve a variety of different types of toasts, coffee, tea and soft boiled eggs. All these are fairly staple Singaporean breakfast items.
As I mentioned in my post on Wu Shi Nian Dai kaya toast is one of my all time favorite breakfast items to eat. Kaya is a spread made of eggs, sugar and coconut milk and flavored with pandan. You spread it on toast with butter.
We were walking around Orchard Road and decided to stop by the branch at Far East Plaza as my gf had eaten kaya toast there on a business trip her first time to Singapore, so she wanted to go back again.
We got the following:
This was pretty good, not the best kaya toast I’ve ever had, but I’d be very happy if they had a branch in NY. The toast was crispy, the kaya was pretty good and they put a little bit more butter than I like, but overall it was pretty decent especially for a chain. 8.25/10
The coffee was standard coffee with condensed milk in it, still very good though. If you’ve ever had Vietnamese coffee it tasted pretty similar. 8.25/10
Soft Boiled Egg:
I love soft boiled egg, they are simple, but taste really great with the kaya toast and coffee. 8.5/10
Overall, a pretty decent place and surprisingly good for a chain.
