Kaya butter toast and a cup of traditionally brewed Hainanese coffee has always been a heaven-made match. Ah Wang cafe make both of these even better together for your afternoon tea.

You probably didn’t know much about this real hidden gem tucked away in an unobvious food court, surrounded by low cost government flats around the Tanjung Tokong area.

Ah Wang Cafe has been around for decades, and there’s no fancy menus — just toasts, coffee and runny eggs in a cup.

What they are really famous for, is their home-made kaya (coconut jam), sandwiched between two slices of benggali toast.

The toast usually comes with a balanced spread of butter mix with kaya, or more well known as the “roti kahwin”. It is best savored by dipping into a cup of hot coffee or half-boiled eggs.

There is also another way to enjoy this well known Hainanese coffee and toast combo, the eggs on toast set along with a cup of Iced coffee (if you prefer the iced version).

If you ended up liking their coconut jam (kaya) just like we did, they do sell them in cans that you can bring home.

This place is better suited for afternoon tea-time fix as they only starts serving from the noon (12:30pm onwards)
