Hi from Batu Pahat! Loving the traditional kaya toast/bread breakfast. The kaya here is more towards the brown coconut-heavy style while Singapore seems to prefer the green pandan-heavy style. The kaya was sweeter than usual, since they added some gula melaka, with generous silvers of tiny chewy dessicated coconut. Together with the freshly toasted bun and hot kopi-c, my breakfast was awesome.
Having a very low impact holiday in Hong Kong visiting a friend and discovered this modern coffee joint right by the road side near his apartment at Tai Kok Tsui Road, a stone’s throw from Olympic station.
We all like to visit new places, and with the whole slew of new bakeries and cafes popping up the last 2 years meant we have little opportunity to do repeat visits unless we love it that much. I can safely say that I love Baker & Cook’s bakes that much. Started by Dean Brettschneider (www.globalbaker.com), they also do cooking/baking classes at their flagship outlet @ Hillcrest Road (Greenwood Avenue).
So I’ve never been to One-North/Portsdown Road area and as I walked the winding street to Jimmy Monkey one Sunday afternoon I can’t help but appreciate the peace and quiet of this reclusive developing part of Singapore.
Tucked at the end of a block at One-North Residences, a mere 5-10 minute walk from one-north mrt station, you know you’ve reached the coffee sweet spot when you see the bright orange sign and their monkey mascot.
