Start your day at this quaint shophouse in Singapore’s colourful Katong district. Chin Mee Chin has been a breakfast institution for generations. The interior has barely changed over the years and little has changed in the kitchen either: they’re still toasting coconut jam buns over a charcoal fire and using a sock to pull coffee the traditional Singaporean way. Trays of delicious, freshly baked cupcakes emerge from the kitchen every 15 minutes or so. If you ever see a batch of the chocolate ones, grab some before they’re all snapped up by bulk orders.
