While the name looks like a love letter, we can assure you that it’s not….well, maybe it is….about our love for toasts. For those of you who aren’t aware, Loti means toast/bread. So how can we not write a post about our love for loti?
In Singapore, it’s not all about the traditional toasted bread with soft-boiled eggs and coffee/tea anymore. We have evolved, having a wide array of different types of toast to choose from, in this post we will be talking about our favorite spots to get our toast fix. You will get to know the different types of toast available here and who knows, maybe one of them is your frequent go-to place.
First stop, we had Dazzling Cafe’s Hazelnut Chocolate Honey Toast. The most aesthetically pleasing / photogenic toast we ever had! Their service staff was meticulous in describing the dessert, telling us that their chef would inject nutella into the little toast cubes hidden within the toast. Great bite size toasts, crispy and buttery that goes will with the vanilla icecream and chocolate sauce. The exterior or the bigger size toast was however, a little too tough, and a heavy dish in overall, with the amount of whipped cream used. May not be the best in terms of taste, but definitely the best to look at!
PeanutLoti having some PBJ French Toast from Artistry! We could go on about our love for PB but let use share about this great dessert! Slices of brioche stuffed with PEANUT BUTTER and jelly drizzled with maple syrup and topped with vanilla bean ice cream, cookie soil and mixed berry coulis. The softness of the warm french toast goes perfectly well with the cool ice cream, it’s no wonder why they are always sold out during our previous visits! Use our code ‘peanutloti’ with the HollerOut app when dining in Artistry to get 10% with a minimum spending of $50.

Meet & Melt’s latest offering in the month of June! Thai Milk Tea Lava Toast ($14.90). Crisp and buttery exterior and hidden within, the creative and delicious Thai milk tea lava. Not your usual salted egg/chocolate flavor, definitely something memorable! Looking forward to them moving to *SCAPE!
Tuk Tuk Cha knows how to have fun with toasts ! Shiok cubes of bite size golden mini toasts and a dipping sauce of your choice ! Light airy and crispy, just the way we like it! Have it with the traditional Pandan Kaya or something adventurous like their Taro Kaya that compliments the toast! Now, you can enjoy a toast closer to home with their outlets in Sembawang and Bishan too!
The Bakery Chef’s Mao Shan Wang Durian Toast ! The pioneer of lava toasts craze which all started here with their signature salted egg lava & nutella lava thick toast. Available as a seasonal item for a limited period of time only, durian lovers should make a stop here and try this insta-worthy toast with a luscious durian custard within the crisp walls of well done thick toast with a scoop of ice cream on top! Other than toasts, you will be delighted with a variety of delicious cakes too!
Matcha Croissant from Antoinette. When it comes to french pastry, no one does it better than this French patisserie. Cut into a crisp, buttery croissant with a hot flowing of Matcha lava custard ! Using Matcha powder from Nishio, Japan, it leaves a satisfying strong Matcha aftertaste that wasn’t too sweet. For matcha loving readers, you might want to check out this post!
Is this a familiar sight to many of you? Finally we are talking about our traditional breakfast items in our local coffeeshop. Dubbed as the best kaya toasts in Singapore, there is nothing like Chin Mee Chin Confectionery’s charcoal-grilled round toasts with semi-sweet kaya and a slab of butter to get your day going.
