With a well preserved splash of heritage in its shop, the original branch of Ya Kun Kaya Toast at China Street was surprisingly empty at noon on a weekday. Or so I thought. Soon after we had our orders taken, a huge Japanese tour group arrived with their floppy hats, along with many people from offices nearby.As always, the kaya toast never fails to satisfy. You might agree that the traditional toast has amazing contrast ability. It is first warm, rough and crisp, standing somewhere between a biscuit and soft wondrous bread. Then somewhere between that airy texture, you’re greeted by a cool buttery surprise and nanoseconds later, the sweet and creamy entrance of the legendary coconut jam.On the whole, I do particularly prefer this Ya Kun outlet to the many others around Singapore, just for that air of tradition flowing through the entire shop.For a full review, read: http://aquaintsense.wordpress.com/2013/09/01/ya-kun-kaya-toast-original-branch/ continue reading

Ya KunFar East Square18 China Street, #01-01 S049560Chinatown, SingaporeAugust 2012Merlion Wayfarer was recently in Chinatown coz of a food craving - to try a 76-year tradition of coffee and toast. A picture of the toast and coffee set...Ya Kun does the toast just right - using browned bread roasted over a grill, the old way with charcoals. Unlike many outlets they don’t scrimp and save on the butter and kaya. Neither do they use Planter Margarine which leaves a bad aftertaste. That’s why the toast tastes so good!The full blog is available at:http://merlionwayfarer.blogspot.sg/2012/08/toast-roasted-over-charcoal.html continue reading

Mrupupup felt that the Ya Kun Coffee and Kaya Toast is the best at Far East Square outlet, 18 China Street #01-01. Ya Kun at this outlet serves the toasted bread and coffee that tastes more authentic than the rest of the stores in Singapore. The Ya Kun store was super busy on a weekend morning. With such long history of making coffee and toasted bread (since 1944), there are many outlets of Ya Kun's in other countries like Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Indonesia. Anyway, Mrupupup was at Ya Kun to have a nice cup of coffee and the kaya/butter toasted bread. Kaya is a coconut based jam spread and the ingredients that goes into making this spread is a closely guarded secret by Ya Kun's. It is weird that Mrupupup has cravings for toasted bread and coffee, espcially Ya Kun's. continue reading

Tucked in the CBD area, you will find this little traditional breakfast place. I always love how Ya kun does their watery eggs. It doesn't have those translucent sticky runny stuffs floating in the eggs and it's not overly cooked also. Best of all, they open the eggs for us. There are other places that just gave you the eggs and you have to break them yourselves. Those are good once in a while but I certainly don't wish to dirty my hands much. However, whoever cracked the eggs for me left some shells inside the dish. I managed to pick them out before slurping the entire watery eggs.The charcoal grilled bread is yummy also. I like how they put the whole slice of butter in the spread instead of using margarine spread.Who would have known that the then 15 year old Loi Ah Koon would have traveled all the way to Singapore back in 1926 and started this successful business that is springing up all over Singapore and other parts of Asia. His determination brought a normal traditional breakfast to extraordinary heights. continue reading

Setting is great as in Far East Square which has shophouses that are unique and pretty. Low rise buildings make it special in the CBD. Very clean, tidy area.Value is bad since it is the most expensive kaya toast chain! It costs more than any other place for a breakfast set.Service is great since they take your order and leave you alone after sending your order. The coffee comes in a small cup and saucer which makes it moreish and authentic looking, rather than a large mug which can be overdosing and sickening.The eggs come all cracked, hot and perfect! No need to burn your hands or mess yourself opening the hot eggs!Food is great! Everything tastes great. Still prefer the Kiliney Toast (9/10) which is really perfect. But the toast at Ya Kun (8/10) is pretty good too. Not enough fire taste but toasted perfectly with enough spread inside.Recommended for food and service but not the price. continue reading
