Be My Guest Cafe at Tai Seng serves up a wide array of western-fusion cuisine, cakes and pastries as well as weekend brunch. Some of the dishes on the menu include their Green Curry Seafood Pasta, Lion Prawn Mala Mee Kia, and the Wolfberry & Osmanthus Cheesecake.
Dishing out innovative fusion dishes at affordable prices, Be My Guest Cafe truly is a cafe worth stopping by at if you happen to be in the area.
Their menu is straightforward and features a selection of fusion dishes with strong influences from East and West. If you add on S$4 during lunchtime, you get a meal which entitles you to a soft drink as well as either a cake or tart.
After hearing so much about their Lion Prawn Mala Mee Kia (S$13.80), we just had to try it for ourselves. The dish comprises angel hair pasta and six decently sized prawns tossed in a mixture of chilli padi, Szechuan pepper and prawn roe.
The prawns were sweet and immensely flavourful and the pasta was seasoned well. We liked the tiny chunks of mala peppers that provided a nice crunch and a hint of spice as well as the prawn roe that acted like little nuggets of salt.
One of the highlights of this humble establishment is their Green Curry Seafood Pasta (S$13.80). Beautifully tossed in a Thai green curry sauce, this pasta dish is so fragrant that it just fills up the entire room.
Linguine pasta is served with a generous portion of clams, mussels, squid and prawns, all nicely coated in the luscious, flavourful sauce made up of what seemed like coconut, kaffir lime leaf and chillis.
To balance out the spicy and the savoury flavours, we got a slice of their Wolfberry & Osmanthus Cheesecake (S$4.80) which is essentially a floral jelly inspired by the Chinese gwai fa jelly, atop a decadent cheesecake.
You have a luxurious cheesecake that is rich and creamy, and a refreshing floral jelly that seems to balance it out well enough without overlapping in terms of flavour.
Overall, we were utterly impressed by the food here and coupled with the absence of GST and service charges as well as the great service rendered to us, there is no doubt that we will return. Perhaps next time, to try their other dishes like their chilli crab pasta and crispy pork belly that we noticed other tables ordering.
