Tong Ah Eating House

The first time we went to Tong Ah, we tried their dinner, zichar style.

This time, we went for breakfast and it is a distinctly different feel. The hot morning air set the background for the eating experience while the server deftly carries plates of eggs, bread and coffee/tea freshly made to the tables where customers wait in anticipation for the first meal of the day.

I don't really drink coffee, so I ordered milo. I don't eat butter, so I asked for the bread without butter. In essence, I would make a person who loves the egg+bread+coffee combination shake his head wondering how much joy I would be missing out.

In any case, the bread was crispy yet fluffy in the inside. With a layer of kaya thinly spread over it, it felt just like a quintessential Singapore breakfast. Apparently they have this kaya toast known as the Grade A Kaya Toast where the bread has been toasted and re-toasted many times so that the bread is super crispy. If not, you can also ask for the steamed kaya bread.

Away from the crowded chains of air-conditioned Ya Kun, this is where you may want to find yourself on a weekend morning to enjoy a good and simple breakfast. Service might be a little slipshod when things start to get busy though.
