Solid Kopi and Kaya Toast at Food Glossary

I'm not a big kopi/coffee drinker but when it comes to the one brewed from a sock by Byron and his team from the former Good Morning Nanyang Café, I'm happily lapping up their fragrant, rich and creamy kopi-C. That awesome kopi can now be found at his new venture, Food Glossary at the JTC Summit in Jurong. 
A perfect nibble to accompany the kopi is the Kaya Toast. On the day of my visit, there was a special black charcoal bun, which had a delightful chew. The kaya bore their signature pandan-infused, eggy goodness to add a sweet edge to the salted butter. Try the orange ciabatta kaya toast for something different yet strangely comforting if it's available!
Food Glossary also serves a selection of local favourites such as Mee Siam and Mee Rebus. I enjoyed the former's spicy kick and tanginess from the assam while I felt the latter was a bit bland and lacked depth.
As a proud Eastie, I got to say those people in the West have it good this time with Food Glossary there! Moohehe.

JTC Summit
8 Jurong Town Hall Road
Opens: 8am to 5pm
Closed: Weekends
Chew On This: The kaya here is made in-house from scratch every day. I have personally seen Byron mixing and stirring his big pot of eggs, sugar, pandan leaves and coconut milk over a long time until it becomes kaya! Support this local business and the art of handcrafted kaya before it goes the way of commercialization and mechanical machines.
