Seoul, South Korea.
According to our Korean friends who visited Singapore one of the things they missed about our country or perhaps our region is kaya and kaya in Korea just doesn’t taste quite the same.
Ya Kun Toast is one of the few Singaporean establishments you can find in Seoul along with Bee Chang Hiang and Crystal Jade (Sorry Ding Tai Feng is from Taiwan! =p). Hoping to find some nice Nanyang style coffee, we headed down to Ya Kun Kaya Toast located at the Seoul Finance Center located near City Hall Station.
The Yakun Coffee (3000 KRW) was more milky than the ones we had in Singapore but fortunately taste wise, it was a nice break from the Korean coffee we had for the past month.
The Kaya Toast (2800 KRW), the main highlight of our “Singaporean” breakfast was just so-so. It has a thin layer of kaya and was sweeter than the ones in Singapore. My friends commented that this tasted more like sweet butter toast. Nonetheless, it was better than what I had expected.
The “Soft-boiled Eggs” was a major disappointment, it lacked the runny yolk and the soy sauce was light soy sauce.
