Gæstis finally having a dinner menu, and i was fortunate enough to tag along for thisGæst-edmic dinner tasting. Serving fresh, handmade pizzas for dinner, this predominantlyalfresco dining cafe is much to be hyped about. So here goes: Cold smoked salmon & Fennel  smoked salmon spread over a thiny crusted dough with creme cheese. topping off with some rockets and fennel, really a treat and can do no wrong. one of the must trys!Zucchini & Potato never knew potatoes could go with pizza, but here it is. the zucchini gave the pizza more texture during a bite. if you're a fan of potatoes, do try it. Black forest salami & pickled cherry tomaotes $18 interesting mix of ingredients imo. the roasted hazelnut was the perfect compliment of the salami and tomatoes, giving this pizza a crushy feel when you eat it. Green kale & roasted pork $18 Personally, the best of the lot. roasted pork cracklings! yes they have brought over their pork crackling sandwich and made it into a pizza. how brilliant! the red apple, generous sprinkling of black pepper ensured that there were sweetness and spiciness to subdue the salty pork. Every bite is a charm. The crackling of the pork with the crunchy apples. yes i have gone back a couple more times after that.and lastly, we come to desserts.another pizza? Yes! and i love every bite of it.Rhubarb & strawberry $12 Have always loved good dessert pizzas but they are hard and far to come by. This is one such dessert pizza which is so yummy. spreading rhubarb and adding strawberries, the slightly salty dough does so well with their sweetness. worthy of a try.For my full reivew: http://shauneeie.blogspot.sg/2014/08/gaest-place-for-guests.html continue reading

The CBD area had been known for the wide variety of exclusive cafes in the region, and GAEST just adds on to the list of cafes situated there. Run by a couple of Caucasians, GAEST serves homemade food; from the cakes to even the bread of the sandwiches.Only sandwiches and salads were served for lunch. The Potato Sandwich ($12.00) that my dining partner ordered was somehow a fusion of Baked Potato in a sandwich, especially with the clever use of bacon bits and sour cream which brought out the flavour of the soft potatoes. The bread was crusty at the sides, while fluffy in the middle. Watercress was added, and the sour cream helped in ridding off the bitter aftertaste of the vegetables.Roasted pork is something that I cannot resist, which was I went for the Pork Sandwich ($13.00) straight away knowing that it contains roasted pork. Red Cabbage is known to be particularly bitter, however they have marinated them with orange which therefore managed to reduce the aftertaste of the vegetables. The crackling skin of the pork fitted well with the crusty bread, and there was enough fats to chew. Apple slices are also added to give it a fruity and refreshing taste.There was only one cake offered the day we visited which was the Valrhona Chocolate Brownie ($4.50). We also opted for Greek Yoghurt and fresh fruits to come with it which came at no additional cost. The brownie itself was crusty on the exterior but really smooth and melt-in-the-mouth despite its cake-like appearance. Bits of walnuts were added to give it another dimension in texture. While the Greek Yoghurt did not seem to relate well with the brownie, the sourness paired up nicely with the sweetness and juiciness of the pear which turned it to a rather healthy side dish to the brownie.The blends used for the coffee here are from Smitten, which ensures the quality of the coffee. The Short White ($4.50) has a smaller milk to espresso ratio compared to the White ($4.50), therefore more suitable for those who prefer stronger coffee. continue reading
