Late Night Pozole at Comal!

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

Pozole is one of the most ancient of Mexican dishes that is still commonly eaten today. It has always been a celebratory dish in Mexico, dating as far back as the 1500’s, and is frequently served at quinceañeras, weddings, birthdays and New Year’s celebrations. All versions of pozole featured nixtimalized hominy in broth, typically pork broth. There are three common pozoles: blanco (white), verde (green) and rojo (red) – we’ll be offering pozole rojo.

It seems that I frequently cut out of work before the end of service, and crave a quick, delicious, and economical bite and a drink before I head home for the night, but there seemingly are very few options that fit the bill. That is the motivation behind adding “Late Night Pozole” to our nightly menu at Comal. After 9 pm every night, for $10 one can purchase a bowl of pozole rojo and a michelada or can of Tecate. The hearty pork and hominy stew which will come accompanied by a plate of goodies to add in, just like one might add bean sprouts and basil to a bowl of Vietnamese pho.   Cabbage, tortilla strips, radishes, avocado, cilantro and lime, and an ice-cold spicy michelada to wash it all down – what more can one ask for? Of course, our regular a la carte menu will be available as well, if fish tacos are more to your liking.
