Singapore: Toast for National Day

Tong Ya Coffeeshop - Keong Saik RoadThe National Day holiday rendered the streets of Chinatown noticeably quiet as we sat in the Tong Ya Coffee shop in Keong Saik Road enjoying Kaya toast and sweet thick coffee with the consistency of warm Nutella. Kaya toast - Tong Ya CoffeeshopMrs M woofed the buttery coconut bread with gusto and then, surprisingly, decided it was time for lunch.

The Chinatown Complex hawker centre was packed with lunchtime diners crammed into every available seat near wall fans that barely moved the heavy air. The kway teow was slippery, but filled a hole.

Unrelated to this slight over indulgence, Mrs M then went in search of a Chinese Traditional Medicine Hall for some liquorice root and ginseng extract. Like you do.
