Comal Oculto review image

Comal Oculto


37 Avenida General Gómez Pedraza, Mexico City
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Comal Oculto has a lot in common with Mari Gold: they’re both relative newcomers to the San Miguel Chapultepec colonia, located near famous art museums, and are smaller spots where you’ll sit at communal tables (Oculto actually only has one table that’s set up in the street). What Comal Oculto lacks in space, it more than makes up for in cuisine. 

The focus is heirloom corn in its many iterations, from wild mushroom sopes to enchiladas ahogadas to lamb shank gorditas. The menu is small and focused, so we can confidently say that it’s impossible to go wrong. Order yourself an hoja santa kombucha and turn this into a healthy(ish) meal, before their last call at 5pm.
