Johor Breakfast - Half Boiled Eggs @ Restoran Kin Wah 锦华餐室

Kin Wah coffee shop 锦华餐室 in old downtown JB is well known for its Hainanese coffee, kaya toast, mee siam, mee rebus, and nasi padang. One other thing that sets it apart is their half boiled eggs (or some prefer to call it soft boiled eggs).

Unlike other coffee shops, Kin Wah uses kampung chicken eggs for it's half boiled eggs. Kampung chicken eggs are from free range hens that have not been injected with growth accelerating hormones. 

Expertly half cooked to perfection by Kin Wah’s boss, the simple half boiled egg here becomes a signature favourite. The boss personally ensures that the eggs are perfectly half boiled and the only way to be 100% sure is to open the shell to inspect it - so Kin Wah's half boiled eggs are served opened by the boss.

Look at the yolk. It has a deep rich orange hue. It is also firmer unlike the runnier consistency of the usual farm eggs. 

Stir in a teaspoon of soy sauce and a dash of white pepper and it brings out the unique aroma and flavour of fresh eggs. The eggs are so smooth it gently massages your palette and taste buds before it slips easily down your throat.

This treat of coffee black with two half boiled kampung chicken eggs costs RM3.40.

Ah…. Life’s simple pleasures.

Try also Kin Wah's toast breads and buns which are very popular. Kin Wah's nasi padang is also a favourite among the working lunch crowd.

  1. Beware the expensive fried noodles/yong tau foo stall. I had to pay RM4 for a small box of takeaway fried mee the other day - no meat, just very ordinary fried noodles - perhaps fame is getting to their heads...


I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
