Los Comales, located on the northern cusp of Edmonton’s Chinatown, is hailed as Edmonton’s first authentic Guatemalan restaurant. Although this cultural hot-spot turns out a fine dish of El Chapin (a Guatemalan classic), Los Comales is so much more than just a taste of the region. The vibrant colours and sounds, the spicy foods on the menu, and the sizzling atmosphere of Latin America all combine to make your visit to Los Comales unforgettable.
Where it all began
The name “Los Comales” is a derivative of the Guatemalan word comal, which is a metal or mud plate. Traditionally, a comalwas used by the Mayas in Guatemala to cook tortillas or toast cocoa grains. True to its name, this restaurant carries a large variety of enchiladas, nachos and pupusas on its menu.
We are family
Jorge and Elba, the friendly owners of Los Comales, pride themselves on providing their clientele with a fine family atmosphere. They love being a haven for dining families, and also enjoy including their own family in the restaurant business. The joyful, upbeat atmosphere of Los Comales is only enhanced by the presence of the owners’ children and other family members. It’s enough to put you in the party mood!
No matter what time of day you wander into Los Comales, the food will be fresh and hot! In addition to Guatemalan fare, there are a large variety of dishes, including a number of vegetarian meals, to choose from. From chicken fajitas and Sopa to El Chapin and rancheros, this lively fare will leave your mouth watering. Foods from Mexico and El Salvador, and traditional Latin American peasant dishes also grace the menu. Pan-fried steak, rice, beans, corn and much, much more complete the delectable line-up. Isn’t it time you stopped by Los Comales?
