We had our first Kaya Toast when we went to Funan Digital Life Mall in Singapore with our friend Paui (http://pauicardeno.multiply.com/). He was the culprit of this craving actually. Thanks dude! Its time for a break so he encouraged us to try the famous Kaya Toast. We went to a stall full of old-timer staffs, ordered toasted bread with soft-boiled egg and coffee. Not a typical set-meal here in the Philippines. We tried the combination, and to our surprise, it tastes Great! The next thing we asked, "Is this coffe-shop available in the Philippines?".
Loi Ah Koon, from China, started this mouth-watering food on the year 1944. Ya Kun is a Hanyu pinyin equivalent of Ah Koon. That's why it is called Ya Kun Kaya Toast.
The first stall was located in Telok Ayer Basin. Now, they have over a hundred stalls across different Asian countries like Singapore, Japan, Vietnam, South Korea, Indonesia, Taiwan and of course the Philippines.
Kaya Toast is a popular snack among Singaporean. This is a combination of toasted bread, kaya jam and butter, cheese or margarine. Kaya is made of eggs, sugar and coconut milk and flavored with pandan. Good for anytime of the day. Match this with coffee or tea and soft-boiled egg. Whoooo... Simply Perfect!
The first stall here in the Philippines is located in the departure area of the NAIA terminal 2 (Check out Our Awesome Planet by Anton for details). We were really excited that this yummy toast conquered the Philippines already. We won't be any happier when we accidentally passed through it in Robinson's Place Manila. Second stall in history. The stall is near Mercury Drug, Savory Chicken and Robinsons Supermarket.
Grab the Kaya Toast Set (4 pcs kaya toast, soft-boiled egg and coffee or tea) for only Php 150. This is a starter for those first timer.
