The Como Cuisine Approach
With signature dishes from Como Hotels and Resorts properties around the world, as well as original concoctions, its modern take on cleanliving food is now a permanent fixture at Dempsey Complex.
The backbone of the Como brand (owned by fashion-and-lifestyle doyenne Mrs Christina Ong, who also owns retail empire Club 21) is the desire to provide luxury experiences. The latter include travel, retail and dining – for the discerning.
And Como Cuisine stands out in a world full of brave new food and brave new chefs. Some say it’s invigoratingly new, yet comforting. Some say it’s health-conscious food that tastes as good as it looks. They’re not wrong.
“Como Cuisine is an approach to food that is generous in flavour and quality, but restrained in execution,” says Timothy de Souza, executive chef at the Como Dempsey Complex. What he means: The dishes have minimal garnishing to allow the produce to speak for itself.
De Souza’s career has taken him as far as the Caribbean. It was his Anglo-Indian heritage that kicked off his penchant for fusing flavours from around the world, and this prominently features in Como Cuisine’s new dishes – mostly unique spins on traditional recipes from the region.
He adds: “In Singapore, cultural diversity is a catalyst for creativity, and we delight in this opportunity to bring together ingredients and techniques to produce something new and unexpected.” – HIY Como Cuisine, Block 18A Dempsey Road.
