What they are really well-known for, is their home-made kaya (coconut jam), sandwiched between two slices of benggali toast.

The toast usually comes with a balanced spread of butter mix with kaya, or more well known as the "roti kahwin". It is best savored by dipping into a cup of hot coffee or half-boiled eggs.
