Singaporean Breakfast: Ya Kun

I posted years ago my breakfast of soft boiled eggs. But I noticed in that post it was a picture of the steamed sandwich version.

A typical home-style favourite in Singapore, especially for the Chinese here, is soft-boiled eggs with kaya toast. Kaya being a coconut pandan jam. However if you’re a true blue Singaporean, regardless of race, you’ll tend to incorporate the other cultures into your homes and for many Malays, eating soft-boiled eggs for breakfast wasn’t the exception.

I remember eating this when I was young and so did The Hubster. I think many Singaporean mothers back in the 80s and 90s believed in the nutritious value of eggs on their children’s intellect.

A few days ago, I had the opportunity to eat this again at Ya Kun for breakfast on a weekday before work. What bliss.

And this time, I made sure I took a snapshot of it with the crispy and creamy and buttery kaya toast that goes along with it. Sipped with coffee, this is the go-to breakfast of champion Singaporean kids who rule over PISA scores and our humble taxi drivers.
