Tong Ah Eating House
Filed in best kaya toast | April 23, 2019
Tong Ah Eating House is one of the traditional coffee shops where kaya toast lovers visit for a nice cup of coffee and some kaya toast. Tong Ah serves kaya with white bread, which is not easy to get in Singapore these days.
New location, unchanged quality: After 75 years standing at the triangular building on Keong Saik Road as an iconic kopitiam, Tong Ah has relocated to its current place with just some stalls away from the original spot. New home, but flavors are familiar. Kaya toast and coffee are still the ones pleasing the palates of many Singaporean generations.
Extra crispy toast, a special menu item: If you want your bread toasted thrice until super crispy, ask for a thing called extra crispy toast. Tong Ah always listens to your preference and makes it best for you.

The morning menu is all about the traditional breakfast with some types of kaya toast, steamed kaya bread as well as soft-boiled eggs, steamed pork buns and coffee. The dinner menu is more about yi chaz dishes like claypot tau foo, coffee ribs, and scallop rolls, but diners still can have the toast and coffee.
LOOK & FEEL:
New look and new environment. Most of the Tong Ah seats are inside an air-conditioned room while only some are placed in an open-air area in front of the shop. The old-world charm of the original shop is a thing that Tong Ah cannot bring along to the new address.
