Food Review: Gaest

Inspired by the modern Nordic cuisine, Gaest is a small cafe that serves hearty sandwiches on freshly baked homemade bread, vibrant salads, and freshly ground coffee. Their lunch menu is simple – sandwiches and drinks. Service is extremely warm and friendly too.


Pulled Pork Sandwich ($14)

A popular dish here is the Pulled Pork Sandwich. An absolutely satisfying and generous combination of succulent and juicy roasted pork with crispy, crackling skin, refreshing slices of green apple, orange marinated red cabbage and mustard mayo. The sandwich bursts with a cacophony of flavours – sweet, sour and savoury. It was incredible although the toasted sourdough bread crust was a bit hard to cut through.

We also ordered the Smoked Salmon Sandwich ($15). There were thick slices of luscious smoked salmon with plenty of rocket leaves, beetroot slices and topped off with horseradish cream. Odd combination but it went well together. I also loved their concept of open sandwiches that were beautifully presented.

I enjoyed this meal very much and would definitely be back again.
