Best Thing We Ate This Week in LA: Kaya Toast at Spice Table

We first fell in love with the creamy coconut jam during a trip to Malaysia, so we were pleasantly surprised to find a version of it in the Singaporean-Vietnamese restaurant Spice Table right here in Little Tokyo. While we've usually had it for breakfast or as part of dessert, here Bryant Ng uses it in a savory application paired with buttered toast, a perfectly cooked slow cooked egg, soy sauce and white pepper. The result is a super satisfying mix of textures and flavors - the crunch of the toast, the sweetness of the coconut and the richness of the egg blended with the salt from the soy sauce and spice from the pepper - comes together to create one addictive bite. We would have this every day for breakfast (or at dinner) if we could ($7; 213-620-1840).
