The intrepid and indomitable Travelling Gourmet TM goes to sleepy Bedok in the East to discover…
MOST appetizing Sunrise Garden Café in Blk 537 Bedok North Street 3, unit 01-539. It is a new café that has opened recently.
I went there a few days ago to try the Breakfast Set of Coffee or Tea, Two soft-boiled Eggs and ubiquitous Kaya Toast. It came promptly on beige melamine plates, and my Kopi with Condensed milk was in a white porcelain mug with the Republic of Singapore Police Force logo on it. I must say that the triangles of Kaya Toast had more butter and more kaya than the one at Toast Box (part of Bread Talk with its con job “freshly made” Soya Bean Milk) and is also better than the one at Ya Kun Kaya Toast! A lovely crunch and flavor with the salty butter melding in to the sweet coconutty sweetness of the Kaya Egg Jam. Moreover, it is half the price of the equivalent Breakfast Set at those aforementioned places! FINALLY, a nice Kaya Toast served as it should be!
Enjoy food and drinks with a good price to quality ratio, plus the café is spotlessly clean too. The owner, Jimmy and his wife, are very nice and friendly too. Jimmy was a Ship’s Captain and Mariner and still works in this line as a Ship Class Surveyor, in between helping his wife at the café. Lunch and dinner with local favourites are served as well. Airy and bright, I recommend this café for when you want a yummie local style breakfast to start your busy day!

I was with Jason at Michaels housewarming when you gave me your web address. If I knew you were a Kaya expert I should had consulted with you.
The reason is that I like Kaya on toast, and so does my daughter. She had requested me to buy Kaya in Singapore. As an amateur on Kaya I bought one jar Hollyfarms Nonya Kaya, a bit greenish. And a jar of Kaya House Premium Kaya. One is for my daughter and I’ll keep the other for myself. Non of the jars have been opened yet. So here’s the questions. Which one is the better one? Honestly I intend to give the better one to my daughter😉
I have read some of your articles with great joy and bookmarked your page!
Regards and a happy SG50!
I think that the Kaya House Premium Kaya is better. You can make your own too. Use eggs, Gula Melaka or Palm Sugar, Sugar, Santan or Coconut Cream and Pandanus leaves or Pandan leaves.
Thank you for your kind comments.
Can you do a post where we can find good traditional Hainanese coffee please? 🙂
