The Commodore Hotel is continuing its commitment to the new Armada Bar and Grill opened recently in the east side of the city, on Hay Street.
The recently refurbished hotel has just named Bonnie Sulistyo as head chef for the restaurant.
Mr Sulistyo cut his teeth in Perth working at the Globe restaurant at the Parmelia Hilton under Cheong Liew, known as the ‘father of east/west fusion cuisine’ in Australia.
It was under Mr Liew’s stewardship that the Globe garnered much praise for its innovative, fusion-styled cuisine, a skill that has now taken him to the multi-award winning The Grange restaurant in Adelaide.
Mr Sulistyo has just released his new menu for Armada and hopes to continue the themes of innovation in his cooking with this latest challenge.
