The French pastry chef behind it, crowned World's Best Pastry Chef at the 2018 edition of the World's 50 Best Restaurants awards, is best known for his surrealist ‘trompe l’oeil’ (French for “optical illusion”) creations that resemble the fruit they’re made with.
This 40-seat dine-in outlet marks his first foray into Asia, and features Singapore-exclusive confections like the Mooncake ($52 for two pieces), Dragon fruit ($26 each) and Lychee ($26 each). Currently, five different desserts are available for pre-opening orders on his website, with the earliest collection date set for 14 September. The Como PR rep tells 8days.sg that these pre-opening sales items are available for takeaway only. Which means you’ll likely have to join the hordes and queue if you want to enjoy these desserts at the cafe.
