Kopitiam – soft boiled eggs, kaya toast with a slab of butter and dark soy sauce and white pepper and the obligatory strong sweet coffee – boiling hot. Breakfast is served, Singpaore style.
Love the traditional Singaporean breakfast. It’s cheap and delicious. Something funny happened though on this occasion.
As I am a largish Caucasian, the lady that was serving at the counter initially refused to give me the soft boiled egg, insisting I would not like it. I tried to explain that I had had it many times and am quite fond of it.
Lucky for me, a compassionate Singaporean standing in line behind me explained to the lady behind the counter in Chinese that the large white man in front of him, did indeed want the soft boiled egg. Owing to his intervention I soon walked away happily with my Set A.
I would like to thank my anonymous benefactor. Without you I might not have been able to secure one of my favourite breakfast meals that day.
Breakfast at the Hyatt.
Need I say more?
I have stayed in many hotels in cities all around the world over the years. The breakfast buffet at the Hyatt in Singapore is by far the best.
Peruse the pics at your leisure.
The ambiance, service and variety and quality of the food are all outstanding. Even though it is a large space, they have managed to create a cozy and comfortable atmosphere, intimate and exclusive even. At an extremely reasonable rate.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough – Die, die, must try!
