If you fancied something local at the heart of Upper East Coast Road, then you might want to check out Killiney Kopitiam at Siglap. They serve very ‘Singaporean’ breakfasts e.g. thin slices of toasted bread, spread with butter and kaya, two half-boiled eggs, and a cup of steaming hot coffee. By the way, Kopitiam means ‘coffee shop’ in Hokkien, a local dialect.
We went for more substantial stuff like chee cheong fun, nasi lemak, mee rebus, and (surprise, surprise) fish & chips. They also do chicken curries. With 4 cans of softdrinks, the bill came up to about $26.
Next door to Killiney Kopitaim is a Starbucks outlet, where you can satiate your latte craving. Cost of coffee – $5.50 (tall size).
