Be My GÆST – The Nordic Affair

You probably seen me coming to GÆST infinite times; but I actually have not written any reviews about them. The good folks brought us divine Nordic food in the central business district and I trust that GÆST well-deserved all my votes. 

Despite the tiny space of the kitchen and its interiors, you will be amazed how could they churn out high quality food from the limited space, and you will be pleased to know that everything here are made from scratch.

SCRAMBLED EGGS WITH SMOKED SALMON


The usual Scrambled Eggs menu comes with freshly smoked salmon, sourdough bread and eggplant salad. I actually tried the smoked salmon sandwich before, so I requested to take it out from the plate. This was not a common practice for the staff, but they were so kind and just charged me for what I wanted. 

POACHED EGGS WITH EGGPLANT AND GOAT CHEESE
Two portions of poached eggs served on Danish rye bread with eggplant and salad on the side. 

For those who have a low tolerance to goat cheese, you can request to replace it with feta or creme cheese (whichever ingredients are available). Just make sure you inform the staff when you are placing your order. 

*Menu may subject to change depending on the availability of the fresh ingredients. 

VERDICT
Try EVERYTHING on the menu. Yes I mean everything, GÆST has a lean menu that serve simple, honest, homemade food priced comfortably below $20 that will not break your wallet. From the number of frequent visits you see on my Instagram and Burpple posts, rest assured that you will not be disappointed.
