Just to clear any confusion first, Yeast Side is located at the West side of Singapore, specifically Bukit Timah.
Yeast Side at King Albert Park KAP, as the name suggests, focuses on bakes and coffee in the day.
It transitions into a local watering hole with 12 frequently rotating craft beers and hand-stretched pizzas after 5pm.
This is a double-storey space, and so you can choose to sit at the outdoor area ground-floor when it is breezy, or head above for a windowside view.
There has been an increase in micro-bakeries popping up in Singapore, with familiar names including Starter Lab (Havelock Road), Petit Pain (Joo Chiat), Micro Bakery (East Coast), and Woodlands Sourdough (Upper Thomson), which has brought about a new wave of demand for sourdough bakes.
Yeast Side serves up rotating types of Sourdough, including Country ($9), Seeded ($10) which contains sesame seeds, flaxseeds and millet seeds, and Honey Spelt ($10) with honey-sweet fragrance.
There is also an assortment of rustic pastries such as Carrot Cake ($6), Banana Bread ($5), Brownies ($5), Sourdough Sticky Bun ($7), Scones ($5) and Quiche ($6).
The bestseller is definitely the Sourdough Sticky Bun ($7), soft and fluffy cinnamon buns coated with salted caramel sauce and finished off with toasted walnuts.
Noted that they have increased price of this item, though it is sometimes sold out by early noon so head early if you want to get your hands on one.
If you prefer dense cakes that are not too sweet, go for the Yeast Side’s Banana Bread ($5) or Carrot Cake topped with cream cheese & walnuts ($6).
Though to be honest, it was not my favourite Carrot Cake as would have preferred the texture to be more moist.
I quite enjoyed the Quiche ($6) though, with buttery shortcrust base and toppings that was creamy-satisfying yet not overly heavy.
Also available are brunch items like Ham & Cheese Toasties, Smoked Salmon Ricotta Tartine and Banana Nut Butter Toast, which features their house-made savoury nut butter sauce.
Hand-stretched pizzas are offered from 5pm onwards (which I have yet to try), with flavours ranging from classic Margherita, Hawaiian to Prosciutto & Arugula.
Customers that are feeling peckish can also opt for bar bites like Truffle Fries and Mexican Wings to go with any one of the 12 rotating taps for craft beers.
