Como Taperia Co-Owner Shaun Layton On Restaurant Life, EnRoute Success And Why He Loves Hosting

Jamie Mah / Mickey Mcleod/Shaun Layton

In this episode, we couldn’t help but bring on for a second time our good friend Shaun Layton. Shaun sat with us a little over a year ago to discuss the imminent launch of his new restaurant, Como Taperia. It thrilled us back then that he wanted to chat and talk about what he had in store for us as a city as we no doubt knew his venture would be fantastic. 

Well one year in, we can confidently say that we were not wrong in our initial assessment. Como came out with a bang and we love it. Beautiful room. Delicious food. Excellent atmosphere. They’ve hooked us since day one. 

Also, let’s just say we haven’t been the only ones to feel this sentiment as Como was recently awarded runner up status on EnRoute’s coveted Best New Restaurant list. Amazing stuff! 

For this one we wax on what a year it’s been for Shaun and his team, the experience of EnRoute, goals for the coming year, restaurant philosophies and a bit of Vancouver dining culture. This was a fun time. Shaun is endearing and very candid. We hope you enjoy it. 


** If you’ve never heard of Shaun, you might have seen him in the past behind the bar at either Juniper or L’Abattoir. He’s a past recipient of Vancouver Magazine’s Bartender of the Year Award. 


Como Taperia is located in Mount Pleasant. They’re open nightly seven days a week. They have an excellent happy hour. We recommend that you try the Bamboo Martini.
