Egg Mayo Toast @ The Toast in Taman Johor Jaya

Modern kaya toast and coffee cafés are sprouting up like mushrooms in the morning, in every taman (residential precinct) in Johor.

Friends recommended that I visit The Toast and suggested that I try their signature egg mayo toast.

I visited their branch in Taman Johor Jaya and found it really popular with the morning tea crowd. (Their main outlet is in Taman Mount Austin.) The café was packed with people like an old time kopitiam in contemporary white themed décor and setting. The cheery, convivial chatter punctuated by the occasional laughter that make kopitiams such happy gathering places has not change – just brought up to date with air conditioning and modern décor J

Egg mayo toast RM2.80 and coffee black RM1.50

Like many contemporary cafés, The Toast too had an easy to use electronic waiter paging system. The system worked really well for efficient, no fuss service even during peak hours.

Their much touted egg mayo toast was good indeed. It was freshly made – rich with eggs and mayonnaise whipped into a thick, creamy, smooth and tasty spread laid over a slice of thick, lightly toasted white bread. 

The coffee was aromatic, subtly bitter, robust and full bodied. A fine and pleasant way to load up on the day’s caffeine shot. 

The Toast café also has the full range of food and beverages such as popular local staples like nasi lemak and mee siam,

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