both places only the toast and coffee/tea are fresh.

other items like curry chicken / etc all are pre prepared and warmed up.

Both are expensive. YA KHUN got a branch in the Bangkok Siam shopping mall. When visit only can see houseflies but toast box in hong Kong can see crowd.

I had TB curry chicken once, and the chicken had that old, frozen chicken taste. It was severely off putting and I’ve not eaten their curry chicken since. I like the lu rou fan but the serving keeps getting lesser so I stopped ordering.

Yakun’s mains suck.


Prefer fun toast curry chicken thicker and power....gotch new branch at Jurong point and amk

But the chup not enough.

I also don’t understand the hype for Yakun/TB’s beverages. As an established brands, their standard isn’t consistent. Almost every Teh bing I’ve had from TB is overly milky. The worst Yakun I’ve been to is Changi City Point, the tou shou looked good but the drinks were crap. The outlet closed down already. Some outlet in the north side also quite Chui, can’t remember if is north point or causeway point. The funan one asked me what is di lou lol.

The chains I’ve found to be quite consistent so far is Fun Toast and Kopi & Tarts. But I tried the JP Fun Toast kopi recently and it was TERRIBLE. It was bitter without coffee fragrance/taste, almost as if the water wasn’t hot enough when they made the coffee base.
