Grilled Saint Paulin Toast, Strawberry Pepper Coulis Ease into the weekend mood with Gastrosmiths Bistro's Grilled Saint Paulin Toast with Strawberry Pepper Coulis ($9.50)! A intriguing take on the classic, the combination might sound odd to most… but superbly done, the melted cheese and sweet pepper coulis glazed loving atop worked together in perfect sweet-and-spicy harmony; possibly outdoing their Signature Grilled Camembert Toast. Specially imported, the creamy semi-soft cheese was surprisingly mild and instead matched up nicely with the smooth jam as well as charred toast without overpowering the individual elements. The touch of spice with the bits of pepper also balanced well with the savouriness and buttery hints from the gooey french cheese.

30-Day Dry Aged Natural Angus Bone-in MBS2+ Ribeye Exploring outside of their more familiar and casual grub, Gastrosmiths Bistro's latest menu sees quality indulgence in the form of their Specialty Claypots. Thus an easy favourite and the highlight of our meal, their 30-Day Dry Aged Natural Angus Bone-in MBS2+ Ribeye ($118/ 650G) was absolutely divine and overall worth the splurge for a sharing party of 2 to 3 pax. Grilled on a cast iron and served atop a fragrant bed of claypot rice; the meat was all tender and succulent with a great aroma to boot. Done to an ideal medium-rare, the delectable chunks also possessed a fine charred exterior while having the lovely moisture locked in. However, the heady, smoky perfume of the claypot rice was what ultimately drew me in. Flavoured with soy sauce, mirin, red wine, natural juices of the meat and beef stock made from the trimmings, the dish would certainly excite any beef lovers' taste buds. Furthermore, the added sweetness of the mirin complemented the smokiness nicely, giving the item a heavenly umami punch. So shiok! *Note that the claypots are subjected to availability with an estimated waiting time of 20 minutes. Pre-ordering is encouraged. Thank you @gastrosmiths for the warm hospitality and @Burpple for the invite!

This is definitely not your regular toast. This is in fact Gastrosmiths’ Signature Grilled Camembert Toast ($9), which is a pimped up version of the regular ones as it contains gooey French Camembert on top of grilled bread and finished with a dressing of rosemary honey. Camembert has a sharp cheesy contrast which might not appeal to many, but the floral sweetness from the rosemary honey cancels out some of the strong cheese aroma. For desserts, I would recommend the Warm Gula Aren Cake ($8.50), a housemade palm sugar coconut cake which is accompanied with a scoop of vanilla ice cream drizzled with more palm sugar. _________________ Gastrosmiths Address: 112, East Coast Road, i12 Katong, Unit 03-06, Singapore 428802

Ondeh ondeh hotcake [$15] After the descent of Earl grey charcoal hotcake, ondeh ondeh hotcake is back on the menu once again! ✨ Pandan flavoured hotcake embedded with salted coconut ricotta creme, topped with Pandan coconut gelato, sprinkled with toasted coconut flakes and served with a side of gula melaka sauce. A deconstructed and revamped version of the Peranakan kueh that we are all familiar with, the hotcake was soft, fluffy with a slightly crisp surface layer that carries off a lingering aromatic pandan essence and fragrance. The texture was done to an ideal perfection- soft, light and sufficiently moist 💖. Unfortunately the salted ricotta creme got outshone by the distinct Pandan essence, harbouring a negligible effect to the overall flavour unless you were to consume it in silo. The colour of the Pandan coconut gelato got me turned off initially with an artificial shade of neon green but fortunately the taste did not disappoint, a pleasant sweetness of coconut that was also refreshing though the texture could have been better if it was smoother and less icy. The toasted coconut flakes added a crisp, fibrous mouthfeel to the hotcake, a complimentary and perfect pairing to the hotcake, where the resemblance to ondeh ondeh kicks in. Unfortunately, this would not be available anymore, with the cease of operations at @artistrycafesg 👋🏻 . . . #burpple #smitteneats #smittenchoice

Peanut butter & Jelly French Toast [$15] . And so... today marks the end of @artistrycafesg ‘s service and operations 👋🏻😭. Apart from the brunch, one thing I would miss most is this French Toast that surprisingly far exceeded my expectations, officially one of the best I have ever had (apart from @sarabethsofficial that I tried in Taiwan). Had initially wanted to try it last weekend, but it was already sold out by 12pm😭. Came back on a Friday afternoon (and reserved this just in case) which certainly did not disappoint, to which both my dining and I enjoyed it truly, polishing it off in no time, although she doesn’t even have a sweet tooth in the first place, unlike me. The brioche toast soaked in spiced custard was soft, fluffy with a pillowy texture that is filled with peanut butter and raspberry jam. A nutty, roasted flavour and aroma coupled with a subtle tartness from the fruity jam, it was clearly a winning combination that surprisingly didn’t turn out to be overwhelming or saccharine as expected! 💖 Served with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream that was smooth, creamy with a fragrant milky flavour, the addition of the mixed berry coulis provided a tinge of acidity; a good counter balance to the other sweeter elements. Wouldn’t mind giving this a 2nd try... but unfortunately its extinction prohibited me from doing so 😭 . . . . #burpple #smitteneats #smittenchoice
