Recipe: Kaya Toast from Susan Feniger's Street

Dear SOS:

A friend of mine and I were extremely lucky to go to

during a soft launch day. The one thing that stands out from that day of culinary exploration was the Kaya toast, a simply toasted piece of white bread topped with the most delectable coconut egg jam/cream we have ever tasted. I was lucky enough to stumble upon a recipe on the Internet for it, but both the source and measurements sound dubious. Please help!

Dear Sherrie:

Street's take on the snack food from Singapore may appear a little unusual at first, but it's highly addictive after that first bite. Sandwich thick, creamy coconut custard (or "jam") between two slices of warm toasted bread, with a little shaved butter tucked in for added richness. Dip the sandwich, cut into bite-sized wedges, into a soft-fried egg drizzled with dark soy sauce and a dash of white pepper for a surprisingly wonderful harmony of flavors.
