Quezon’s Coconut Jam, a spread made with coconut milk and muscovado sugar, is the Asian equivalent of Nutella, says HLing. It tastes like coconut candy, “except this is spreadable like soft caramel.” It tastes great on a piece of baguette, in place of the usual sweet butter or strawberry jam.

In Singapore, says Louise, the coconut spread is known as kaya and is the featured substance at the ubiquitous kaya toast cafes. “Usually it’s served as part of a set: kaya toast, soft boiled eggs, and coffee with sweetened condensed milk,” says Louise.
