Kopi bun! How I love the sweet aroma of hot coffee and a freshly baked bun! The smell of these two combined together is indeed heavenly. When I was young my lola always brought me freshly baked bread and I cannot remember a time that I was without it. Literally, I grew up with bread in my hands. haha 🙂 My love for coffee also started at this time. I remember liking its bittersweet smell and the the times when I would dip my bread in my parents’ coffee cups when they were not looking. hehe
Just imagine my delight when I came across a real coffee bun, one which has all the goodness of bread and coffee without needing to dip the bread in a cup of coffee and getting it soggy. I first came across a Kopi bun in Kopiroti Makati, the one in Ayala avenue. We were looking for the National Statistics Office to get data for our thesis and we didn’t know where it was and so we entered Kopiroti and bought something to be able to ask for directions. haha! and boy was it destiny! Right in front of me was a goodie worthy enough for my ultimate favorites list.
This coffee bun is indeed a piece of heaven. It has a crunchy coffee flavored crust with hot soft bread and creamy butter filling inside that will leave you wanting for more. One bite is indeed not enough to taste all the creamy, buttery and coffee goodness of this delectable Kopi bun.
Aside from the Kopi bun which is their specialty by the way. Kopiroti also serves other kinds of toasts such as French toast and Kaya toast.
Kaya toast is a toast filled with coconut jam and butter. It has a sweet and buttery taste that will somewhat give your tongue a tingly feeling.
Kopiroti also serves a side dish that makes eating toasts and buns more fun. This soft-boiled eggs dish is ordered and eaten together with the toasts or the coffee bun and is usually used as a dip. One dish consists of 2 soft boiled eggs mixed in with a little soy sauce.
After all that eating surely one is bound to get thirsty and what indeed is the best way to quench that thirst? For me it’s simply Nai Cha or milk tea. This is what I usually pair off with the buns or toasts that I order. It’s a combination of milk and tea and a little bit of condensed milk. I have always been a fan of milk tea and I like mine cold and not too sweet and Kopiroti’s milk tea meets my standards. yahoo!! 😀
Kopiroti originated from Singapore. This is one coffee shop that’s fun to visit and we usually go here if we want to have coffee or tea and something real good to go with it. 😀
Kopiroti can be found all over Metro Manila and selected provinces nationwide. In Davao City it’s located on Jacinto extension.
