Komali Serves Traditional Comida Corrida

by Steven Doyle       

Recently we had a chance to try out an exciting luncheon option at Komali  that is priced well and served fast, Comida Corrida. This is the traditional table d’hote, a small meal of several courses at a fixed price eaten between about 1 and 4 p.m in Mexico. In the case of Komali, this is a three course prix fixe mid-day meal.

For $14 you get whatever combination they may have served up that day with no substitutions. This enables the lunch diner to get in and out quickly while still having a satisfying and authentic meal.   

The day we were there they were serving a chilled cream of avocado soup, the chile relleno de queso Oaxaco with red rice, and this sinfully delicious flan that is made of chocolate cake and vanilla flan topped with goat milk cajeta called Chocoflan.

While visiting Komali we indulged in our favorite appetizer in Dallas, the Queso de Cabra. This is local goat cheese from Caprino Royale infused with Morita chiles, topped with a sweet piloncillo sauce and grilled bread. Even if we go to Komali late at night for margaritas we always make sure an order of the goat cheese is on the table.

Comioda Corrida continues through Labor Day, but we hope chef Salum extends the popular lunch option.

  1. drinks are superb, queso de cabra is devine; but skip the relleno with crab. its described as lump crab meet but what one gets is a mushy pepper with stewed fishy tasting stringy crab meat definitely not the lumps of globes of crab meat envisions a veggie crisp pepper should be stuffed with.
