Como Hotel

In another life I used to spend a lot of time at the Como Hotel. Ok well not a lot of time, but I went there reasonably frequently. Actually even spent New Years there one year….. left with an armload of helium balloons….. I returned there last week for a catch up with a lovely lady that I hadn’t seen for ages! And the Como fit the bill as a venue for us both being central to South Perth and Mt Pleasant.

I don’t mind the layout, it’s nice and open with plenty of comfy chairs and lounges throughout and as the weather had cooled down they had the windows open in the restaurant area, so it was all very lovely and breezy. We sat ourselves at one of the tables near the windows and decided that our long overdue catch up sesh would be further enhanced with a bowl of wedges (with sour cream and sweet chili of course) and also one of the Roasted Veggie Pizza (Mediterranean vegetables, spinach and fetta on a homemade tomato sauce base, with mozzarella cheese and fine herbs) to share. It was going to have us sorted for dinner also, which was another bonus.

The food didn’t take long to arrive and I actually didn’t mind either. Wedges are pretty hard to stuff up and I thought serving side it was a generous enough amount. The base of the pizza was really nice and light, probably thicker than I normally have these days, but not deep dish or anything, and it had a pleasantly fluffy centre. The toppings were nice…. I often find with vegies like this and also pesto that it gets to a point where I just max out on that same flavour. Fortunately this really only happened on my last slice.

So we chatted and chatted and decided to end on a sweet note and share one of their apple pies along with two coffees. The coffees were fine, nothing particularly special about them but they did the job. However the same can’t be said for the disappointing dessert. The pastry on such a small pie was actually quite thick…. To the point where we questioned whether there was any apple in the pie at all! The ice cream on the side was pleasant, as was the crème anglias and the fresh strawberries made for a refreshing garnish, but the star of the plate definitely didn’t shine. So much so that when they collected our plates and asked how it was I actually told them. He confirmed that they weren’t made on site but we suggested that they get a new apple pie supplier because a Sara-Lee would have been better! He did offer to reimburse us for it or have it replaced, but I wasn’t overly phased and for $8.50 I perhaps should have gone in with much lower expectations.

So in all only a short review, but I wanted to share my thoughts. The company, as is so often the case, made for a really lovely visit.
