Cafe Toast 'n' Toast Kopitiam @ Danga Bay, Johor

Cafe Toast 'n' Toast had it's humble beginnings in Malacca and today they have a total of five branches, three in Malacca and two in Johor. I remember having read a write up in NST sometime back and it is by mere luck that I discovered their branch here in Danga Bay, Johor Bahru. This outlet is located along the same row as Tune Hotel Danga Bay and it is road fronting and hence, it is not difficult to find this place. During business hours, parking can be a little difficult though.

A Little Write Up on Hainanese Cuisine

Interior of the Restaurant

Interior of the Restaurant
I was here rather early, a little earlier than the usual lunch hour and when I was here, the place was almost empty. Come 12.30, the entire restaurant is filled with people working around this vicinity and it is buzzing. They have a decent size restaurant with outdoor and indoor seating areas. On one side of the wall, a number of write ups that have been published in the local newspapers are framed and put out for customers' viewing. The staffs were all Malays and they were really efficient. I liked the way one of their waitress was handling the crowd. She was really swift and she could remember who came first and who came later and attended to them accordingly.

The Menu
They have a brief yet comprehensive menu. It covers a great array of cuisines but they all come with a Hainanese touch. They offer Chinese, Hainanese, Western, Vegetarian, Malaysian, Malay and Terengganu Cuisine. It is sad that I am alone here today or else I would have been able to try out more dishes as they all look great. Having firmed my orders, I placed them with the waitress. 

Ice Lemon Tea @ RM 3.50
I would usually go for the Hainanese Coffee but since morning, I have already had four glasses of coffee and I just wanted to avoid it. As a result, I settled for the above Ice Lemon Tea. It comes at a price of RM 3.50 and it was just so so. I would only rate this drink at 6/10 .

Chicken Chop Stew @ RM 13.90

Closer Look at the Chicken
I have had Chicken Chop with a number of different sauces but this is the first time I am having it with vegetable stew. I must say that they have been able to deliver this dish in 15 minutes and that's great. This dish comes with a half of a Roasted Potato though I may have preferred more , some onions, baked carrots and a lovely sauce. The slice of Chicken is lightly breaded and fried to perfection. The coating is very light and that allows the juices from the chicken and the flavours from the stew to seep in. I am not saying that this dish was perfection but what I am saying is that this dish was nice and unique and that it is a result of great innovation. Overall I enjoyed this dish. It is definitely not the best Hainanese Chicken Chop that I have tried but it is good. I would rate this dish at 8.5/10 .

Other Outlets

On the whole for the price paid, I am happy with the service and the food. If you ask me if I would return to this place, yes I surely would. I am definitely eager to try their other dishes especially their toasts and Nasi Lemak. I do hope that I do get that opportunity and I shall surely publish another entry when I get a chance to visit them again.
