Kaya and Butter Toast @ Kheng Guan Hiong Kopitiam in Pontian, Johor



Pontian locals have been congregating in this awesome kopitiam (coffee shop) since 1956. Kheng Guan Hiong kopitiam is now located right next to Pontian's wholesale fish market.

The towkay still personally brews the coffee
Kheng Guan Hiong is going strong into the 3rd generation. The towkay’s son is already helming the kopitiam’s operations.

This coffee shop is filled with cheerful, chattering customers all the time – young, not so young and from all races.

Kaya and butter toast RM1, coffee black RM1
One of their main draws is this classic kaya and butter toast with coffee.


Their popular kaya and butter toast is made with these freshly baked old style bread.


The bread or bun is toasted till golden brown over a simple charcoal stove.


The crispy golden brown toasted bread blends perfectly with the well balanced tastes of sweet kaya (coconut jam) and the mildly salty smooth butter.


Pontian style coffee is relatively light bodied but its flavour is robust, and it carries that seductive coffee aroma well.

This is a perfect spot to enjoy an excellent kaya and butter toast with fragrant hot coffee while soaking in the small town, rustic, friendly charm of Pontian J

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)
