Hot in on our steam-powered press release machine come news of a new summer menu at Komali..
“Spicy food lovers hit a home run at Uptown’s Komali Restaurant. Chef/Proprietor Abraham Salum and Executive Chef Anastasia Quinones have cooked up a hot dish for the Contemporary Mexican eatery’s summer dinner menu. Costillas de Puerco (braised pork ribs) with pineapple habanero glaze, queso fresco mashed potatoes, and grilled nopal salad carries a “WARNING: very spicy.”
Other new menu highlights include Squash Blossom Quesadillas, Redfish with Texas Peaches, and Seafood Stew. For the sweet tooth summer diners can try Coconut Bread Pudding or Strawberry Tres Leches Cake.
While Mixologist Leann Berry’s award-winning margaritas will cool the palate, don’t look for Salum and Quinones to have the ER standing by for those who over-indulge in the new “too hot to handle” dish. They do promise, however, plenty of other cool menu items. Berry’s margarita was just listed as one of the best in the state by Texas Monthly.
