If we’re ever on Death Row, the last meal we request will be brunch.
And if possible, it will be shipped in from Komali, whose new executive chef (Julio Peraza) is peppering the menu with inspired dishes that bring a fine-dining level of execution to eggs and other morning faves.
Start with a chipotle Bloody Mary, a super-spicy house-made mix created by always-smiling bar manager Leann Berry to wake up the taste buds and prepare your soul for a delectable meal of Mexican flavors. After just one, you’ll be ready to move on to a tamarind mimosa or two, ideal for sipping on the patio while you await your main attractions.
Appetizers of chorizo and potato sopes are a wonderful way to kick things off with plenty to share with friends.
An adorable little crock filled with beef and potato hash (beef tenderloin, potatoes, fried egg, pico de gallo, Mexican crema and queso fresco) is best appreciated in one of the piping hot homemade flour or corn tortillas served alongside. Or stuff those carby discs with a flavorful brisket scramble or migas made with eggs, chorizo and corn tortilla chips.
Then bring things to a sweet conclusion with corn pancakes (pictured) topped with whipped goat cheese, molasses, bananas and walnuts.
Of course, you can never go wrong with Komali’s Chocoflan, one of the best desserts in the city, no matter what time of day you wander in.
Best of all, brunch at Komali isn’t just for Sundays. It’s served on Friday and Saturday, too.
Much more convenient for scheduling that pre-execution meal.
