--By Dionysus, translated by Cara Steenstra

There is a kind of traditional breakfast in Singapore with toast, coffee and egg, but doesn't taste like you'd expect. Kaya Toast is a piece of toast with a layer of specially made Kaya paste and butter. This recipe has remained the same since 1944. The paste is made from slow-cooking a combination of coconut paste, eggs, sugar and vanilla for several hours. It does not contain any food coloring or preservatives and is imported directly from Ya Kun in Singapore. Ya Kun Kaya Toast is very well known and many visitors to Singapore make a special trip just to try their breakfast. Finally, the fragrance of Kaya Toast has arrived in Taiwan. Situated in an alley in NeiHu's Science Park, Ya Kun Kaya Toast has a spacious seating area. Breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea are available at very reasonable prices. There are five different kinds of toast set menus, all for only NT$70, with flavors like Kaya, French and Cheese. The set menu comes with a soft boiled egg and a cup of tea or coffee, and is only NT$50 before 10 a.m. There is also an "ice cream toast" featuring a crispy outer layer with cold sweet ice cream wrapped within - quite the taste sensation. There are also different kinds of traditional drinks here that bring an air of retro atmosphere to the cafe.
