Every day in Italian fine fashion jeweller Pomellato’s Milan atelier, over 100 artisans craft one-of-a-kind jewels. Each gemstone creation is brought to life by their passion and expertise, forged by hours of meticulous labor and inventive solutions. This process brings together precious metals such as Pomellato’s signature rose gold, fine diamonds, and colored gems from all over the world. The good news is, we will soon be able to shop Pomellato's colorful creations with an unconventional twist & unmistakable style at their upcoming store at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
Synonymous with creativity and color, Pomellato was founded in Milan in 1967 by Pino Rabolini – the heir to his family’s goldsmith legacy. Introducing the prêt-à-porter philosophy to the traditionally conservative world of jewelry.
Rabolini revolutionized women’s fashion choices while shaping Pomellato with a powerful, fashion-forward identity. Fifty years later, his jubilant, distinctive designs have grown to be revered both in Italy and across the international jewelry landscape.
Expressing an avant-garde, original approach, Pomellato’s sophisticated colored stone combinations feature peculiar gem cuts and visionary designs. Impeccably crafted, Pomellato pieces have led the brand to embody a modern yet unconventional beauty, immediately recognizable per the Maison’s signature style.
In July 2013, Pomellato joined the Kering Group. A global Luxury group, Kering manages the development of a series of renowned Houses in Fashion, Leather Goods, Jewelry and Watches: Gucci, Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Brioni, Boucheron, Pomellato, Dodo, Qeelin, Ulysse Nardin, Girard-Perregaux, as well as Kering Eyewear. By placing creativity at the heart of its strategy, Kering enables its Houses to set new limits in terms of their creative expression while crafting tomorrow’s Luxury in a sustainable and responsible way.

Just as el mero mero is Mexican slang for “the main man” or “the go-to guy”, so is El Mero Mero the restaurant the go-to place for Mexican gastronomy.
Five years after it first opened its doors, the restaurant has reinvigorated its mission of being the venue that sets the bar for Mexican hospitality. El Mero Mero at Chijmes brings to life the vital energy of Mexican culinary culture in all its allure and complexity, and this refreshed energy is manifested throughout all El Mero Mero.
The space has been refurbished with care for a renewed impression. Soft ivory walls, marble tables and lush green plants frame the open- plan kitchen where chefs work together in plain sight, their precise movements drawing the eye to what guests will shortly be dining on. The counter seating offers up-close kitchen- side dining that will illuminate different facets of Mexican food and transform your understanding of Mexican dining. This attention to detail and deep understanding of presentation permeates the new menu, which is designed to reflect both Mexican culinary history and its dynamic modern foodscape.
Consider El Mero Mero’s range of botanas or Mexican small plates such as the classic Baja Fish, elevated, and the Corn Sampler, a dish that plays with different flavours to offer a new perspective on corn; the selection of cocktails based on mezcal including the eponymous El Mero Mero that uses orange-infused mezcal for a subtly smoky, and refreshing long drink.
El Mero Mero’s new menu showcases traditional flavour combinations, and also demonstrates the current Mexican culinary trends. As representative of a cuisine that has so much more to offer, beyond the tacos and burritos that Singaporeans are familiar with: El Mero Mero hopes to open our eyes, minds, and palates to the power of Mexican gastronomy and hospitality.
Thus, while remaining faithful to old mores, the new menu is modern and global, executed with finesse and sophistication. These are some of its highlights.
For classics with spirit and soul, look no further than their El Taco. With crispy tooth fish tempura and juicy salsa, their Baja Fish tacos are a celebration of classic Mexican flavours and an explosion of textures. The Wagyu Volcan’s combination of charred cheese, Australian wagyu beef and molcajete (mortar & pestle) sauce of tomatoes, jalapeno and garlic is a rich burst of juicy umami.
The Avocado Taco brings forward a very different idea: charred corn tortilla and cool creamy avocado – for most Mexicans, this is the taste of home. For novices to Mexican fare, it’s an eye- opener: absolute simplicity, done impeccably.
Other dishes that bring forth these flavours of history and memory include the Hamachi and Coconut Ceviche, a glory of fresh sashimi-grade Hamachi tossed in coconut milk infused with the tangy hibiscus; and Tortilla Soup, creamy comfort made with tomatoes roasted in the Josper oven,guajillo chillies, and thickened with charred tortillas.
A restrained hand with contemporary updates drive up the culinary excitement. Consider the Atlantic Grilled Octopus, a generous Josper-grilled swirl of tentacle that offers oceanic sweetness with an undertone of smokiness and the Corn Sampler, a tribute to the many faces of that essential Mexican staple, maize with skewers of Josper-grilled organic baby corn and donuts made in-house from huitlocoche or “corn mushroom”.
The Gordita expands on the eponymous Mexican classic: rather than simply filling the empty pocket of this corn pastry, it becomes a base to celebrate heirloom vegetables and frijoles. The El Mero Mero Fajita brings together two beloved Mexican flavours not commonly paired together – a poblano shishito crema and grilled beef – to richly savoury results while the Tequila Pecan Pie is a creative and sweetly aromatic combination of Mexican produce – cinnamon, pecans, and tequila – made a little edgier with a final grill in the Josper before serving for a subtle smokiness.
This approach weaves the past and the ‘now’ together for a culinary tapestry like no other.
El Mero Mero promises a new vision of Mexican cuisine and hospitality, saturated with warm generosity. The Mexican heart is all-evident. Make a reservation with them via this link today and be wowed.
