Komyuniti brings together small plates and cocktails in a multi-concept co-working and restaurant space

If you’ve been too preoccupied with spending your hard-earned pay checks at any of the malls along Orchard Road, you may have missed out on Yotel, the tech-driven hotel next to Shaw Centre. One year after its debut in Singapore, its dining room has been overhauled and replaced with a new concept. Taking up the 10th floor now is Komyuniti, a multi-functional space that opened late last year, offering food and drinks to workaholics and serial networkers.

Named after the Japanese way of spelling out “community”, the place is home to a 238-seater restaurant/bar, alfresco terrace, and co-working area. Essentially, it’s another spot to chill and escape from the Orchard Road crowds, especially if you’ve tired of all your usual haunts in the neighborhood.

Oh, and the drinks menu of under-$20 cocktails is a plus, too, for those keeping their wallets on a tight leash this year.

With its communal theme, Komyuniti naturally serves up small plates that don’t cross the $18 line, with items such as tomato soup ($9), salmon poké ($13), beef tartare ($14), cheeseburger sliders ($18), crab rillette ($14, a take on chilli crab), and buttermilk fried chicken ($13).

The selection isn’t massive, but if you find yourself still peckish after a few bites, order a round of mains like roasted pork belly with brussels sprouts and green apple ($19), pan-seared snapper with romesco sauce ($19), or slow-roasted duck breast with braised red cabbage ($20).

Then add on a spoonful of sugar to your meal with desserts including apple walnut cake with salted caramel and brandy cream ($10) or hay panna cotta with mixed berries ($9).

If you’re staying on a little longer to wash away those work worries with a splash of booze, peruse the cocktail line-up for $18 concoctions that are divided into categories like “bittersweet” aka spirit-forward; “tropical” for those breezy beach vibes; “sours”, a play on the whisky sour; and “timeless”, as in classic recipes.

These creations aren’t anything like your regular martinis or Manhattans (although they do have those here too), with unique options such as Fat Roger, made of fat-washed bourbon, cacao-herb liquor, chocolate bitters, smoked ham, and dried cranberries, or Chaussettes, a mix of truffle vodka, cheese syrup, lemon, egg white, lemon biters, grated parmesan, and truffle oil for the truly truffle obsessed.
