Wanted to have my kopi-C fix and a little snack one afternoon. I saw this little open-space counter selling kaya toast, sandwiches, and all the hot /cold beverages, similar to the likes of Yakun, ToastBox, Kiliney etc... Looking at the lighted sign box menu above the counter, I was pondering what to order. Usually we pay extra attention to the side of individual items with a "Must try!", "Highly recommended", "Chef's choice".... etc... I was not in the mood to have the usual kaya toast, until I saw "Steamed Kaya Bread" with a "Must Try" in red print at its side. This was the first time I saw "steamed kaya bread", so I thought why not give it a try. More healthy.
You can imagine my surprised look when the counter staff gave me my order. It was just a plate of warm steamed plain white bread cut into cubes, which came with a mix of butter and kaya spread plopped inside a small plastic container and a tiny wooden 'knife' to spread your bread. So, the "must try" steamed kaya bread is actually plain bread which I needed to DIY myself. Fooled.
