This Sunday, the Brunch Bunch hit up Komali.
I have been there before for dinner, which was delicious. So I had very high hopes for their brunch.
It was the first time that Lolly has been able to make it to our monthly brunch, so we made her take a picture by herself as punishment.
Most of the girls ordered mimosas, which are only $2 a glass and cheaper by the carafe.
However, I was way too hungover to partake (only sushi for dinner + 2 martinis + 3.5 glasses of wine = no bueno). Thus the coffee...
As a starter, they brought everyone (not just us...everyone their eating brunch/lunch) a small bowl of soup. I didn't catch the name of the soup, but it was basically a tomato broth with chopped spaghetti noodles and a little cheese. It wasn't bad, but the consensus at our table was that it was very reminiscent of SpaghettiOs.
We also ordered the Queso Fundido with mushrooms and poblano chiles for the table. It comes with tortillas to wrap around the ooey, gooey cheese, and was really good.
Jill ordered the Migas, and was pleasantly surprised that the chorizo wasn't super greasy.
Erin got the Cazuela de Papa, which is "beef tenderloin & potato hash, fried egg, pico de gallo, Mexican crema, and queso fresco." She said it was good and was glad the egg to other stuff ratio was low because she is not a huge egg fan.
[On a side note, when I looked up the description of the menu item on the restaurant website, I noticed that they use the serial comma inconsistently. Blerg!]
The two Lauras ordered Chilaquiles...although only one could pronounce it :).
And Rachel and I both ordered the Machacado con Huevos, which is described as "shredded short ribs, scrambled eggs, pico de gallo, and queso fresco, breakfast potatoes and black beans."
Everyone agreed that the food was good but not great. All the entrees could have used a little more flavor/spice. I will definitely be back for dinner at some point, but probably not for brunch.
However, even though the food was a little underwhelming, the conversation definitely was not. We discussed new babies, new jobs, going back to school, a "weird uterus," and ordering condoms via Amazon's "subscribe and save" program...totally normal. Ha!
