The irrepressible and audacious Travelling Gourmet goes to a…

MALL in Bedok, namely Bedok Mall…to check out the Kaya Toast in Ya Kun Kaya Toast. I ordered Set A which comprises two half boiled eggs..Coffee or Tea and Kaya Toast! I had Kopi O Kosong which is strong black coffee. ย The Kaya Toast is made with brown bread taosted on a big grill. The Singaporean lady told me emphatically it was made with butter. Is it really?? The moment of truth…I opened the bread to find…

ANOTHER SCAM! Very little Kaya Jam (Egg Jam) and a small rectangle of butter..smaller than the “butter” at Toast Box! It was haphazardly placed and not cunningly placed like at Toast Box to mislead you the diner. The amount of Kaya was very little and the thickness of the bread was only 3mm thin! Only dribs and drabs of Kaya Jam despite the name of this establishment…The coffee was not too bad. I scoffed up the two eggs with a dash of Soy Sauce and some sprinkles of pepper. The liquid yolks exploded in my mouth…my palate was almost overwhelmed by their gooey rich flavours. It was satisfying.

I must mention that here if yooou want ice cubes or even water…it is chargeable. I think this is very bad! If you want tissues to wipe your hands and mouth…yes, you guessed it. It is also chargeable at 30 cents a packet! No free paper serviettes like at MacDonald’s and Burger King and KFC!

So, my dear readers….looks like the Kaya Toast SCAM is also at Ya Kun Kaya Toast. Next place to investigate is…Killiney Kopi Tiam…

Well, I reiterate…if you want a really good Kaya Toast you have to DIY – Do It Yourself!

The Sting is a classic movie about Con Artists…the themes song is by Scott Joplin.
