Since 1944, this chain of air-conditioned kopitiams, Singapore's answer to coffee shops, has been a breakfast and lunch favorite among those not counting calories. At this, the original Chinatown location, and others, the signature dish is the thinly sliced toast spread generously with kaya, a creamy mixture of coconut and egg infused with fragrant pandan leaves and sweetened with brown sugar. Generous slabs of butter melt on contact with the just-char-grilled squares. Thick, black coffee and soft-boiled eggs round out the minimalist menu. Ya Kun is a family-run enterprise, modernized and expanded by the founder's children to include outlets overseas. But the decor remains simple—plain walls, metal chairs, and fluorescent lighting—and the local flavor simply can't be exported.

Open Mondays through Fridays 7.30 am to 7 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 8 am to 5 pm.
