COMO Cocoa Island opens its first ever pop-up dining experience, The Konro Grill and Bar
COMO Cocoa Island has launched its first-ever pop-up dining experience, The Konro Grill and Bar, which is set to run until April 10th, 2024. This unique dining experience combines the art of yakitori with an exquisite sake bar, promising a fusion of Japanese flavours amidst the picturesque backdrop of the island’s powder soft white beaches.
Guests can savour the tantalizing aromas of fresh vegetables, meats, and seafood skewers, expertly grilled on a traditional Konro grill right before their eyes. The menu features premium Tajima Wagyu with beautiful marbling that gives the meat a rich, buttery flavour; Glacier 51 Toothfish, sometimes referred to as the wagyu of the sea, with its delicate sweetness; and brussels sprouts with miso and dancing bonito for extra umami.
Japanese spirits enthusiasts can indulge in a curated selection of premium sake, including the illustrious IWA 5 Assemblage 2, Junmai Daiginjo crafted by Richard Geoffroy, former Chef de Cave at Dom Pérignon. Japanese beers and inventive cocktails, such as The Green Konro signature cocktail, featuring Shirataki “Pink” Jukusei no Jozen Mizunogotoshi, Midori liqueur, pineapple juice, and Scrappy’s Bitters, promise an unparalleled sensory experience.
The Konro Grill and Bar is open from afternoon until late, allowing guests to enjoy stunning views of the beach, especially during sunset or under a star-studded sky. The purpose-built pop-up restaurant is crafted entirely from local materials, aiming to bring the quintessential Japanese food-cart experience to life amidst the tropical paradise of COMO Cocoa Island.
Overall, The Konro Grill and Bar is a must-visit for those looking for a unique dining experience on COMO Cocoa Island. For more information or to book your next stay, please visit https://www.comohotels.com/maldives/como-cocoa-island.
