Killiney Kopitiam

Killiney_Kopitiam1One of the most authentic Singaporean breakfast you can ever have would be the grilled toast with butter and kaya or soft-boiled eggs, accompanied by a fresh aromatic cup of coffee or tea, at Killiney Kopitiam.


The toast comes in a sinfully generous amount of kaya and butter. A bite into this breakfast will have you swooning in happiness. What I love about Killiney's toast is also that it is slightly crunchier on the outside and soft and warm in the inside. The kaya's just sweet enough for me and the butter melted just nice – as compared to some other places that leave their butter unmelted.

Yummy as it is, the toast wasn't enough to fill the hungry tummies of two ladies yet to have their lunch at 3pm. So we ordered the Curry Chicken set with rice and the Hainanese Chicken Chop. I would have loved the chicken curry to be slightly thicker with perhaps less of the coconut milk. However, the chicken was tender while the potato was clearly fried before added into the curry.

We didn't have much expectations for the Hainanese Chicken Chop but was pleasantly surprised by the soft, succulent chicken in sweet sauce though it was hardly authentic. We finished it up since it felt less sinful than the curry.


Even on a weekday afternoon, the place was fairly packed with a fair mix of elderly people and youths attracted by the authenticity and the affordability respectively. The age-old self-service system works fast and efficiently here too.
