Ah Mei Kaya Toast
Here's a local speciality: kaya, which is a light green colored jam made from coconuts and eggs. Spread it on toast with a chunk of butter, and you've got kaya toast, a popular breakfast here. There are famous shops around the island; here is a lesser known one at Paragon #B1-37/38.
It may not look like much in the photo, but it sure is good (then again, I guess anything with butter tastes good - and they are excessively gratuitous with the butter on these little bad boys). It's not terribly sweet, and yet it's rich in taste.
It's also common to eat soft boiled eggs and tea (with milk) at breakfast. I guess it's a carryover from the English colonial days (?), but note that it's not without localization: you are supposed to season it with soy sauce and white pepper. All in all it's a light meal though. Hey - what time does lunch start??
