Yay! It’s Friday once again and we decided to have our end of the week dinner at Greenbelt 5’s Toast Box. Toast box is a coffee shop which serves Singaporean meals and is under the same company as BreadTalk.
Being a coffee shop, we know that it’s a must for us to try their Toast Box Sets (Php 150.00). We decided to go for their Traditional Kaya Toast Set (Php 150.00). Kaya is the Malay term for coconut jam. I love how the coconut jam blends perfectly with the butter. It’s sweet and tastes light at the same time. It also came with 2 soft boiled eggs. Honestly, we’re not sure how we should consume the soft boiled eggs so we decided to use it as some sort of a dip for the bread. For our set’s partner coffee, we decided to go for Kopi. Unlike normal coffees which is blended with sugar and cream, Kopi uses condensed milk as its sweetener.
I’ve tried several bagoong (shrimp paste) rice before but their Nasi Goreng (Php 195.00) is surely not for the faint heart. Personally, I feel as if their rice has too much bagoong on it. I wasn’t able to finish my rice because the taste of bagoong is just too strong for me. Luckily, there were some vegetables included in my meal so I literally munch all the vegetables just to clear my palate from the taste of the bagoong.
I’m not sure if I mentioned it before but I’m not a fan of any kind of noodles. However, my boyfriend is a fan of Laksa. The Nonya Laksa (Php 235.00) is a spicy coconut-based curried noodle soup. Their laksa has a really nice presentation and is loaded with lots of toppings. According to my boyfriend, he likes it and is one of the quality laksa he tasted in Manila.
I love breads and their toasted bread is really good. I’m craving for more as I write this review. My only concern on their menu is that their prices are expensive. However, I don’t think it’s bad to eat here once in a while.
