COMO Cuisine: An All-Day Dining Spot With Wholesome Juices, Pandan Crepe & Delectable Dishes At Dempsey Hill

Como Cuisine

Dempsey Hill is indeed a melting pot of flavours, from Mexican to Italian to Indian. One place that reflects this multitude of cuisines is COMO Cuisine.

As an all-day dining establishment, its dishes strongly represent the best of Asian cooking, taken up a notch with a modern flair.

Its interior is warm and inviting, as well as pleasing to the eye with its clean lines and spacious dining area. The addition of hanging greenery adds a touch of nature to this naturally bright and contemporary space.

As an all-day dining venue, there are plates for all appetites. Looking for something light? The Salmon Cracker (S$8) with house-smoked salmon and jalapeño cream is just the right portion for you — think of it as a slightly spicier version of gravlax.

I loved the union of the slight chewiness of the salmon and the brittleness of the cracker. It made for a great textural bite, and in fact, opened up my appetite for the next few dishes to come.

I don’t normally gravitate towards choosing a salad, but COMO Cuisine’s Wild Rice (S$18) is a generously high-fibre bowl loaded with mushrooms, cabbage, corn, avocado and tahini tamari dressing. I especially enjoyed the nuttiness of the wild rice, and the exceptional sweetness of the crunchy corn.

The salad was evenly tossed in a savoury tahini tamari dressing that really brought out the intended earthiness of this dish, especially the mushrooms.

Out of all the dishes, this was my top pick. The Falafel Flatbread (S$22) is a densely-packed wrap stuffed with eggplant relish, carrots, parsley and radish, served with a side of tahini yogurt.

At first glance, it may not look like much, but that first bite just made me go in for the second, third, fourth, and more.

The tahini yogurt was really flavourful and bright, with its evident hint of lemon juice. That truly helped balance out the heaviness of the eggplant and made the wrap enjoyable and effortless to polish off.

Typically, Chicken Schnitzel (S$28) can be a hit or miss, given that it often turns out dry and bland. However, I really appreciated that the version at COMO Cuisine is anything but.

The breading was toasted perfectly, while the chicken meat was tender and moist. More importantly, it was well-seasoned throughout, with an extra oomph of flavour from the jus that sat atop the creamy mashed potatoes.

Curry is one of my favourite indulgences, and the Snapper Curry (S$32) was pretty phenomenal. Accompanied by saffron rice, the curry was spicy and aptly thick.

There was also a potent coconut aroma that wafted from the bowl, which made this dish extra decadent.

The fish itself literally fell apart and was flaking off into the curry effortlessly. Despite the strong flavours from the curry, I could taste how sweet the snapper was on its own, which was surprising and always very much appreciated.

As for the saffron rice, the sprinkling of pomegranate seeds added a touch of sweetness and fruitiness to the entire dish as a duo, rice and curry together. The harmony of these two clearly was carefully thought out, and worked its magic for me.

How about drinks, you ask?

The Green and Clean (S$12) made me feel like I should be going on a juice detox because it really did taste very ‘organic’ and green. In spite of its earthy flavour, I actually took to it quickly and the taste gradually grew on me.

They also serve a Fresh Juice of the Day (S$9), which sees a daily change. That day we had grapefruit, and it was quite tart. Not for those like me who believe fruits should be sweet.

I also had an order of their Wellness Juice of the Day (S$12), which was a berry quencher. That would have to be the most pleasant of the three, making me think of blueberries, blackberries and red grapes. It was berry delightful, to say the least.

These pillow-soft parcels are their Pandan Crêpe (S$12). When they arrived, they looked so fragile, I couldn’t bear to tear them open. Also, the pandan fragrance was intoxicating even before I laid eyes on it. Within it bears mango, passionfruit and coconut sherbet.

The crêpe fell apart with just a spoon to reveal its bright yellow and creamy white centre. On the palate, it tasted just as luxurious as it looked, and the trio of ingredients made for an utterly sweet and satisfying end to a delicious meal thus far.

Simply named Parfait (S$12), this final dish was almost too pretty to cut into. Made with butterfly pea, pineapple and lemongrass ice, you’ll love this one if you’re into sorbet. I, for one, am not the hugest fan, but the lemongrass ice really won me over.

The main bite was an icy and a mildly sweet combination that cleansed the palate and was satisfyingly refreshing. If you’re looking to wrap up your meal on a light note, this dessert would suit you perfectly!

The vibrant space of COMO Cuisine is something you don’t come across often in Singapore’s dining scene. It’s the sort of place you’d want to set aside time to not only catch up with friends, but also pore over a good book and give yourself some idle time to take in the surroundings.

So, the next time you want to find a place to kick back and watch the world go by, head up to Dempsey Hill and nestle yourself into a nutritious and delicious meal at COMO Cuisine (Make a reservation today).
