I thought I had tasted it all...the good, the so-so and the bad.
Therefore when a friend suggested that I tried Good Morning Nanyang, I had the "how-different-can-it-be" kind of attitude... And different it was!
To start off, the kaya toast was among the best I've ever tasted. The bread had the right amount of crispiness, and it actually had a distinct flavour of toast. (It's surprising to me how many toasts are rather tastelss) The kaya was rather "home-made", and I mean this in a positive sense. One can taste the rich pandan flavour, without being overwhelmingly sweet nor eggy. It's a delicate balance but I think they've got it.
The orange ciabatta was interesting...and actually tasty. The bits of orange packs a welcome tangy flavour which I find refreshing. I'm guessing that this is one of those accidental discoveries by an experimenter, which turned out delightfully well with our local kopi.
And of course, the kopi - done very well in my definition. Not bitter and yet packs a punch. I can't help but wonder why so much other local kopi miss the mark completely, lacking flavour, being too diluted, too bitter, etc.
As far as I'm concerned with the other joints, they'll be let down by either of the core items...i.e. kopi or toast. The difference I've discovered in Good Morning Nanyang is that it's got both the kopi, toast and foodstuff right.
