This is my first time visiting a Killney Kopitiam outlet, and I ordered the staple breakfast value meal that all Singaporeans are familiar with: Kaya toast set with 2 soft-boiled eggs and coffee. However, I was rather disappointed with the overall dining experience.
Ambience and setting: the small coffeeshop looks clattered with several tables and chairs. You will see several tables and chairs joint up together. Ideal for groups, but not for individual or pairs who wanted some quiet time for themself.
Food and beverage: ordered their Kaya toast set ($3.80) which consists of a coffee/tea, 2 soft boiled eggs and kaya toast. Note that the kaya toast is not your usual wafer thin toasted bread that you will get to eat at Ya Kun or Wang cafe. That is fine with me as it is still common to see kaya toasts serves in two slices of traditional baked bread, rather than slicing it into thin slices and toast them.
The kaya toast was cut into 4 small pieces, and when served, it looks sad and miserable. The bread is only lightly toasted, where the bottom part of the toast is still soft, rather than crunchy. The toast is served with a thick slab of cold butter which goes well with warm toast. However, the amount of kaya spread over the toast is miserable. I could barely taste the kaya, which Killney Kopitiam is famous for. Overall the toast taste very dry without much kaya. The soft-boiled eggs that I've got: one is just nicely done, another is overboiled, where the yolk ends up hard.
The coffee taste very weak and diluted, where I could only taste the condense milk and evaporate milk mixed together. Not much aroma and body from the coffee itself, which is rather disappointing.
Though the service is efficient and staff is polite, the kaya toast set is not to my liking. At a cost of $3.80, I can find other kopitiam outlets that serves better kaya toast set at a more reasonable price.
The experience makes me very unlikely to make a second visit again.
