soft-boiled eggs and kaya toast

breakfast a few days ago was at kopi roti, which serves malay and singaporean coffee (kopi) and bread (roti), and they are most famous for their kaya toast. kaya is to malays what peanut butter and jelly is to americans. it’s a pandan-flavored spread on toast with butter. similar to our coco jam but not quite like it.

and then you dunk the bread into the bowl of soft-boiled egg swimming in some soya mixture (looks like taho, which is of course also soya). the black sauce is not arnibal (sugar syrup) though. it’s a bit salty, i guess light soy sauce.

all in all a hearty breakfast (though bad for the heart). he.he.

    that looks very intriguing. i've had roti here but never kaya. is the spread sweet or salty? i like the idea of dunking the bread in egg. i still do that when i'm too lazy to make myself a decent breakfast. i think i got it from my apu who likes runny eggs and pan de sal in the morning, with her sartin (tin cup) of coffee, of course.

    oh, and you mentioned taho with arnibal. i miss that VERY MUCH! stores in chinatown sell taho but it comes with simple syrup β€” AND NO SAGO. it's just not the same. healthier, i guess. but i prefer the brown syrup.
