A gourmand’s paradise with bottomless coffee and wine: Forget about the omakase you know. Inside the sophisticated vinophile haven that is mato, the omakase they’re proudly serving is an all-you-can-taste curation of deluxe coffees and wines from all parts of the world. Next time you pay a visit, trust that mato’s expert sommelier and barista team will blow you away with their educated selections.

And just when you think savoring bites may not be their strong suit — a roster of Italian and Japanese feel-good dishes are eagerly awaiting their turn to impress.

Look & feel: “Let’s go get drinks, I know a place.” That place in question is mato. With a subdued color palette and cold metallic accents, the sleek interior is granted an intimate ambience thanks to the dimmed lights; which is everything you’d expect from a place that discerning drinkers call their “go-to”.
