Our first visit to Komali was with a friend of Chef/Owner Abraham Salum.  At lunch, Salum had blushed as our mutual associate relayed word about how much the Bushes had enjoyed his food.  Yes, those Bushes.  Agents had surveyed the restaurant soon after it had opened in order to arrange dinner for the presidential guests, and we can’t imagine that the VIP treatment the couple received was very much different than the excellent service we experienced while we were there. 


With an easygoing, hospitable staff and upscale contemporary décor, Komali’s clean, fresh vibe is a bright contrast to the heavy, dark hues of the area’s typical Tex-Mex restaurants.  The stark whites and soft, muted tones of the interior provide a ready canvas beckoning to be enhanced by Salum’s vibrant array of authentic dishes from his native Mexico.


Taking its name from the Aztec word for an open fire griddle used to prepare tortillas, Komali serves handmade tortillas, homemade queso fresco, tender meats, delicate sauces, and more along with an assortment of tequilas at its full-service bar complete with communal table and hand-designed fireplace.


Our favorites? 


The Crema de Poblano soup (pictured above) with tortilla strips, corn, and queso fresco was both hearty and refreshing; the Chile relleno de Jaiba (poblano pepper stuffed with crabmeat and topped with roasted tomato salsa, also pictured above) was succulent and flavorful; and our honey ice cream was still delicious even after it began melting as we lingered a little too long over the Chocoflan (chocolate cake and vanilla flan topped with goat milk cajeta).


Refreshing happy hour options include the award-winning Komali Margarita containing prickly pear puree and mango or a fruity glass of Sangria accompanied by a generous scoop of delicious guacamole or a plateful of bite-sized pork sopes.

Komali Restaurant is pleased to cater events and will even assist you in developing a suitable menu.  The same is true for Chef Abraham Salum’s restaurant Salum which is located right next door.
