hosted by Santo Remedio > Cocina Mexicana
The Comedor or dining room is the centre of the Mexican home. Where everyone gathers round each afternoon to eat together. Everything stops for this focal point of the day. Then the dishes that have begun to be prepared since the morning arrive and are shared, together with stories, jokes and laughter.
In our East London flat we are opening up El Comedor, the dining room of Santo Remedio for you to enjoy our take on classic Mexican cuisine, slowly cooked with care and passion for you to enjoy. At our table, which sits only eight, you will see us prepare the food in our open kitchen, listen to our favourite music and enjoy the view of the London skyline.
We hope you will not only enjoy the food and the company but also get a taste of what it feels like to be in El Comedor of a Mexican home.
