Komune is one of the latest additions to the ever-evolving district of Wong Chuk Hang, and if there is one thing to celebrate, it’s the incredible outdoor terrace (when the temperature is right, go there. Seriously.). Located in Ovolo Hotel, you’ll be greeted by a welcoming and attentive staff. It’s an all-day drinking and dining venue lead by chef, El Palanca (Alvaro Ramos), who uses flavours from hometown, Madrid, to influence to create unique dishes.

Komune Sichuan style ribs

I recommend you start your meal with the Ceviche – it’s a light portion of Hamachi served in Peruvian tiradito style with tiger’s milk. The fish is fresh and bursting with the ideal combination of citrus and milky goodness. The tacos on offer are a good beginning as well (I enjoyed the vegetarian option with edible flowers). But don’t fill up too much, because there is one dish here that is an absolute must order. Sichuan-style Slow-cooked Ribs ($368) is a best seller for a reason. Marinated in Asian flavours, smoked with pine tree wood, and cooked sous vide for 24 hours – the result? The meat is so tender, moist and flavourful you won’t believe your tastebuds. This was an absolute showstopper.

Komune churros

For dessert, it was hard to decide between the Churros ($65) and the Liquid Cheesecake ($65), so we had both. The Churros were fluffy and delicious, served with a salted caramel sauce and Sichuan chocolate sauce, but the winner was definitely the Liquid Cheesecake. It was a savoury-sweet delight, made with blue cheese and Camembert. Served warm, it was the perfect end to our meal.

For early birds who want breakfast with a fantastic view, there is an à la carte menu (including Broken Eggs with Pancetta and a Hipster Toast), a European inspired continental breakfast buffet, tapas, sharing plates and sweets.

Specific dietary needs are catered to here, too, because at least a third of the menu is vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free.

If you just go for a drink (and, truly, Komune’s outdoor terrace a fab spot to do this), you’ll be happy to note Komune has teamed up with international cocktail consultancy Cocktail Professor to create whimsical yet delicious drinks for any time of day. Beer and wine lovers, worry not – there is a wide selection of craft beers and international wines on hand, too!
