Toast Box is nothing special, it is a Singapore chain store with several outlets across Hong Kong but I really enjoy their freshly toasted bread with kaya and a strong & sweet tea, coffee or both (yuanyang).
Toast Box specialises in Singaporean/Malaysian fare such as beef rendang, laksa, pandan cake and Nanyang coffee. There are several Toast Box Cafes across Hong Kong, and I’ve been a regular to the one in the basement of Times Square – but recently I tried the one in Tai Koo (that’s where the photos were taken) as we were visiting the ArtisTree and the Island East Market.
It mirrors a typical cafe from the 60s-70s, with its design and menu. It is cheap and cheerful, a lunch menu of soup and a drink will set you back around 45 HKD – and if you are still hungry, you can add on a slice of pandan or banana cake.
Would I go there again? Yes, for a quick snack and a strong/sweet drink. It is nothing fancy and not a place where I would spend lots of time, but the food is solid, the service is quick, it is good value for money – and it reminds me of all the good times and kaya toasts I’ve had in Singapore!
