Finally Trying Butter Kopi in Singapore
Yes, that's butter floating in a cup of local Singaporean coffee. I'd heard of this peculiar thing a few years ago, but it didn't seem to be very common from what I could see. We finally came across it this morning here at Tong Ah (the new spot at 35 Keong Siak Road across the street, not the old location at the intersection), and I was glad to finally get a chance to try it.
It tasted more of coffee than of butter, and if you think about it, it's really not that hard to make. One could in fact simply just take some of the butter from the accompanying kaya toast and put it in. If I read the history correctly, this was done many years ago when butter was a prized item, so having it as a topping for your coffee was a bit of a luxury. Interesting.
