When we ate at The Spice Table two months ago, our group could NOT get enough of their version as well. I figured this dish was simple enough to make at home – there are recipes to make Coconut Jam from scratch, but I was relieved to see all the hard work done for me at my local Thai Market.

Spotted at Silom, right next door to my favorite Thai restaurant Ruen Pair, the bakery Bhan Kanom Thai, and this scary-ass motel.

Similar to Bangkok Market, except a little larger, with more prepared foods…

Along with the coconut egg spread, they have everything else you would need for Kaya Toast…

I compiled a number of recipes I found online – have yet to test…
