A typical Singapore-style breakfast at a coffee shop often consists of soft-boiled eggs, along with kaya toast and a cup of kopi or teh.

The Singapore-style soft-boiled eggs differ from soft-boiled eggs in the West. In Singapore, our soft-boiled eggs are runny and wobbly, and you crack them open like you would a raw egg, whereas in the West, the white is almost fully cooked – the egg can be topped or peeled like a hard-boiled egg – and the yolk, goey and runny.

Learn how to make the Singapore coffee shop-style eggs at home (and you don’t even need a stove for this), in the step-by-step gallery and video below:
