Comal Next Door Now Open!

Monday, April 16th, 2018

We’re excited to announce the opening of Comal Next Door, immediately south of Comal at 2024 Shattuck Avenue in Berkeley. Comal Next Door is our take on the classic Mexican taqueria, featuring burritos, tortas and tacos. We’re also offering a delicious salad with a cilantro-lime vinaigrette, vanilla soft serve ice cream with a choice of several housemade toppings, our classic frozen margarita and two daily aguas frescas (the cantaloupe-mint is an early standout).

                                                                                Burrito featuring housemade chorizo, egg and potato

Comal Next Door is currently open from 11:30am-9pm Sunday-Thursday and from 11:30am-10pm on Friday and Saturday. These hours may shift in the coming weeks, so be sure to check the website for our current operating schedule.

                                                                                       Comal Next Door salad w/cilantro-lime vinaigrette

Comal Next Door will continue to evolve in the coming weeks. Here’s what you have to look forward to: sidewalk seating along Shattuck Avenue, online ordering through our website (or through the CND app) that will allow you to place your order online (and specify when you’d like to pick it up) and delivery through Try Caviar. We are also planning to ramp up our catering operations for gatherings of all shapes and sizes – keep an eye out for a special group catering menu by this summer.

                                                                            Buttermilk fried chicken torta with jalapeño slaw, jack cheese and chipotle aioli

We’re thrilled to be bringing a new offering to the East Bay and to be offering our food and drink during the day as well as the evening. Please come visit us soon at Comal or Comal Next Door!

Bay Area Bites names Comal’s wood-grilled fish tacos the best in the East Bay

Friday, January 22nd, 2016

“The best fish taco of all, in my not-so-humble estimation, is Comal’s wood-grilled local cod. The fish is delivered daily, and the grilled preparation infuses a bit of smokiness without obscuring the fish’s delicate, buttery flavor.”
