If you’re a fan of coconut, then you’ll love Kaya toast.
Kaya toast is a snack found primarily in Singapore and Malaysia. A breakfast staple, but also great as a snack anytime of day, Kaya toast is thin brown toast with a thick coconut jam (kaya, that’s made with sugar, coconut, coconut milk, eggs and pandan) and then a thick slab of butter. You can also have it with a soft egg, but we’re purists and prefer it with out. This stuff is so yummy and costs less than $2 USD.
If you’re in Singapore, you can find Kaya toast in many local food places. Two local chains that are known for their Kaya toast are Ya Kun and Killiney Kopitiam. Ya Kun Kaya Toast has been around since 1944 and has a location in T3 at Singapore’s Changi Airport. Killiney Kopitiam has locations in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia.
