Toast with kaya (coconut jam), half-boiled eggs and coffee are the quintessential Malaysian breakfast.
Love it! The bread is soft and fluffy, and as the name implies – the slices can be pulled apart without using a knife. Check out the video on our Instagram account here to see us pull it apart easily.
It’s sorta like a low-key brioche – but not too sweet and oily like the typical brioche.
As the bread is enriched with eggs, butter and milk – the bread is really best when toasted for the lovely flaky bits and dairy richness. However, when paired with the homemade kaya – it’s heaven on bread.
Started during MCO when he was craving kaya, Trevor uses only the freshest ingredients for his recipe with a generous amount of kampung eggs. This yielded a fuller and creamier texture; and it’s not very sweet. He also uses freshly-squeezed pandan juice and santan.
Pair these with half-boiled eggs and kopi – that’s the life, yo.

The Lady Gloom had recently started offering Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread (did someone say Christmas?) and also Durian Doughnuts (We tried this as well – these were so good. They are kinda like Italian bombolini – donuts with filling. The donuts were perfectly soft and fluffy with a good crisp skin).
