Kopi Roti - a superb stress-buster place

Last Monday, was an epic.It was the last day of our board exams...Finally!
Allow me first to tell you a short story.Please?
 4 months of sleepless nights, book readings, coffee and Cobra Smart (a local energy drink) madness, & we're off the hook...(we just have to experience the 2-3 longest days of our lives, waiting for the final results)..=) God Bless us all.
Party?..  Swimming? ..Out of Town?.. or better be, Retreat?
Maybe, these are all  lining up in your minds guys..but for me, it will definitely be Food Trip! CaptainFood will be active again!Yey!

As an appetizer, here's a review of Kopi Roti

After taking the exam, me and my sister went to St.Jude for prayers, then went straight ahead to Mall of Asia. Since my palate is in search for something relaxing to wash the stress away, we entered this Singaporean Coffee Shop.

Just a little bit of trivia, "Roti"  is generally a South Asian bread made from stoneground wholemeal flour, traditionally known as atta flour, that originated and is consumed in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.(thanks Wikipedia)!

I ordered Hot Tea, Kaya toast, and Soft Boiled Eggs.
Home Made "Roti" Kaya Toast, 55 pesos, 4 pcs

my toast explored. It has Kaya jam, and butter inside
The toast is great. If you like eating bread with coco jam, then, this will be a hit for you.The crustless bread itself is toasted equally well. The butter inside managed to blend with the taste of Kaya Jam, without overpowering each otherAs for the sweetness level, out of 10, it is a 6. Immediately above the neutral zone, making it perfect for a light snack.

Here's a shot for the soft boiled eggs,
Soft Boiled Eggs, 35 pesos
From the name itself, it is simply soft boiled egg, with a bit of seasoning (soy sauce i guess?). It may not look  well in the picture, since, it was already mixed. It taste fine, but not highly recommended. Personally, out of 5 stars, an average of 2.5 will do.

The hot tea with milk is a basic hot version of the Milk Tea. The leafy taste was partly covered by the sweetened milk (condensed, I guess?). If you're tired of coffee, then try this.

The Tea with Milk (60 pesos) goes perfectly well with the Kaya Toast. Cheers!
(sorry for the picture, I can't rotate it..)
Next time, I'll post some reviews for their famous Kopi Bun. As for now, here's a link for their yummy menu with prices. They have Combo's if you prefer to have numerous snacks at one seating.
