While Heng Heng Coffee Stall 兴兴咖啡 at Bukit Merah View Market & Hawker Centre became popular due to its “UFO Buns”, another reason is for its inexpensive prices.

A cup of Kopi goes for $1.20, which is affordable considering escalating prices in Singapore.

There is always a queue at Heng Heng Coffee Stall, but the line moves on relatively fast like clockwork.

The stall is renowned for its “Space Buns” 太空包 ($1.60), with an obvious char on the outer layer, layered with kaya and butter.

The kaya itself, noted for its pastel-green hue, has accordingly been reduced in sweetness to cater to the more modern health-conscious customers.

It was eggy with a light aromatic fragrance of pandan leaves. And yes, not overwhelmingly sweet.

If not, go for the Kaya Toast ($1.60) of lightly charred top and thick slab of butter that melded seamlessly with the stall’s homemade kaya.

Between the two, this was more ordinary to me as one would expect a crisper layer.

I liked the coffee at Heng Heng and usually get the Iced Kopi O ($1.40).

Yes, only $1.40 – smooth, with good intensity for local kopi standards yet devoid of strong bitterness.

Another popular beverage is the homemade Ice Lemon Tea ($1.50), shaken in a cocktail shaker for that extra touch of finesse.

Plus point: operating hours starts from 4 am, accommodating to early risers and those who start work before others.
