After Shibuya-style Japanese honey toast has generated long queues in Tokyo, Taiwan and Thailand, Haraju Cube founders Daichi Fukuzato and Kent Ong decided that it’s high time KLites are introduced to this Japanese treat. The brightly-lit café has cheerful yellow and white walls, huge windows and minimalist furnishings that seem to be sourced from Muji (they’re not). The honey toast in Taiwan and Japan are excessively decadent, but Haraju’s versions are almost austere in comparison, even though they’re already quite indulgent. Here’s how to make one: Eight bread cubes are carefully slathered with butter, toasted on each side, and assembled in a square bread crust before the toppings are heaped on. Remember, these toasts are made for sharing (we recommend coming in a group of four). As a final touch, drizzle Haraju’s local honey blend over the toast, take a photo (or ten) of the concoction and dig right in.
