In partnership with the Les Amis Group, Kausmo at Shaw Centre is a dining concept that sparks conversations about thoughtful and conscientious ways of living.
The new venture promotes thoughtful living by challenging food norms that bring about unnecessary food wastage. Derived from the word “cosmos” – a system of thought, Kausmo is the brainchild of co-founders Lisa Tang, 24, and Kuah Chew Shian, 26.
Lisa, nominee for the Rising Female Chef award at the World Gourmet Summit 2019 and runner-up for the 2014 Les Amis Awards Culinary Competition, graduated from the Culinary Institute of America. It was her time in Primo, a restaurant on a farm that actively engages in zero-waste practices, that inspired her to start a thoughtful business back home. With Kausmo, Lisa hopes to creatively repurpose aesthetically filtered fruits and vegetables that are overstocked, over-ripened, and oddly-shaped and sized.
“Retailers are looking for produce that are of uniform shape and size, but nature doesn’t workthat way. We want to show that ingredients not ideal for retail can be perfect on our plates. AtKausmo, we celebrate imperfections,” shares Chew Shian, restaurant manager.
Every dish created at Kausmo incorporates thoughtfully sourced ingredients; seafood from small farming communities in the region, secondary cuts of meat which are often overlooked in favour of prime cuts, as well as forgotten native greens and florals.
Combining European techniques with Asian influences, Lisa, who has worked at Pollen, Jaan, and Les Amis, demonstrates how lesser-loved ingredients are no less delicious than their popular counterparts.
Kausmo will offer a 6-course Carte Blanche menu at $75++, with Kombucha tasting at an additional $20. Diners can expect flavourful dishes inspired by stories, as the team behind Kausmo takes supply volatility in their stride.
“We’ve learnt to embrace the volatility of our ingredients, because Mother Nature is just as beautifully unpredictable! Much more operational planning and preservation of produce has to be in place to better utilise our ingredients – a challenge that we willingly welcome. In a city known to be able to source almost anything at any time, perhaps it’s time to slow down; better appreciate and understand our food sources & produce,” comments Lisa.
Expect to be greeted with a sense of comfort too as parts of the menu draws inspiration fromthe team’s cultural roots, such as Lisa’s Teochew heritage. Each meal at Kausmo presents a thoughtful approach for guests to think about how they can all make more conscientious choices in their everyday lives and contribute to a more sustainable ecosystem, in Singapore and beyond.

The sake list (arguably the largest in Singapore, with over 50 labels) is the love child of in-house sake sommeliers John and Makoto along with Ki-Sho's head chef Kazuhiro Hamamoto.
Other than bringing in small handcrafted sakes that you probably can't find anywhere else in Singapore, each of the sakes on offer are only brought in once. A must-try is Kakure's house sake, the Tatenokawa Junmai Daiginjo, Nakadori Ki-âsho label which features a delicate aromatic brew with a fruity after taste. If you prefer something thats more soft and crisp, try the Kinshi Masamune, Matsuya Kyuubei Junmai Daiginjo label that features a fresh, clean aftertaste that goes easy on the palate. If you're up for something with a stronger punch, try the Fuurosen Junmaiginjo Nakagumi, Namazake Yamahai label that sees a more refined, robust taste that goes great with red meats like wagyu.

Delvaux, the oldest fine leather luxury goods house is set to open its first boutique in Singapore at Scotts Square.
Established in Brussels in 1829, the house has always enjoyed exceptional prestige and trust of connoisseurs, most notably the royal family of Belgium, holding the esteemed title of "royal warrant holder of the court of Belgium". Steeped in the spirit of Belgian surrealism, Delvaux's witty approach to all of its creations ensures each design carries a strikingly unconventional take on luxury.
Only the finest skins from the best tanneries in France and Italy are used for Delvaux’s products which are crafted by hand in their own workshops in Belgium and France. Architectural lines, daring proportions and innovative shapes are and have always been, key components of the house’s vocabulary.
Among its archives of more than 3,000 designs, Delvaux’s most iconic creations are the signature handbags known as «Le Brillant» (1958), «Le Tempête» (1967), «Le Pin» (1972) and «Le Madame» (1977).
The innovative boutique concept is created exclusively for Delvaux by Luxembourg-based artists, Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil, who participated in the Venice Biennale in 2011. They conceived elegant sculptural interiors for the boutiques, inspired by Flemish architecture and a boudoir-like aesthetic. Executed by the Italian firm, Vudafieri Saverino and Partners, a leader in luxury retail design and architecture, this original concept has recently been extended to Tokyo, Paris and London.
Located at Scotts Square, this new store is spread over a single floor and will be the second Alexander McQueen store to open in Singapore. The retail concept is conceived by Sarah Burton, Creative Director of Alexander McQueen and realised together with David Collins Studio.
Offering runway, commercial and accessories collections from both men’s and womenswear, you will be able to shop for seasonal items as well as iconic pieces such as the skull scarves and knuckle box clutches from the house.
Champagne and wine connoisseurs can look forward to Time & Flow Champagne, a premium organic champagne and wine salon and academy, where you can discover a plethora of distinctive flavours of exclusive wines and champagnes offered.
