Café Cómodo has been around for 2 years but we had never tried their food, until now. The café/restaurant has entered into a partnership with a talented, Argentinian chef that has been cooking at a high level for years at the Hyatt in Mendoza. Expect honest dishes, straight from the heart, with a good dose of Argentinian creativity!
Located in Amsterdam Old West district, near the Kinkerstraat, you’ll find Café Cómodo, a cozy looking café where people come to socialise. With their brand new menu and all star chef, they offer South American dishes with a twist!
The new chef at Café Cómodo
Exiting news because Café Cómodo have a brand new chef by the name of Emiliano Gurrera. Originally from Argentina, Emiliano is combining South American cuisine with the inspiration he has gained on his travels. Previously, he has been the appointed chef at the Hyatt Hotel in Mendoza for many years, before moving to Amsterdam.
At Café Cómodo I get the freedom to cook food that makes me happy. My cooking style is a lot easier than before, but I hope the guests will enjoy the taste even more!
The brand new menu
On the menu are dishes such as Cómodo’s Octopus (baked in breadcrumbs – red pepper jam – pickled beets – fruit vinegar, our favourite!), Sea bass ceviche (marinated in spicy sweet and sour sauce – avocado mousse – roasted corn), Belly Malbec, Tamales de Humita (corn – red pepper – onion – roasted red cabbage), Poulet Noir (chicken marinated in salmuera – lime – spicy sauce), Côte de Boeuf and Brownie (with dulce de leche and coffee crumble). The perfect South American comfort food.
Catch up with cocktails
As you may know, Amsterdam is full of tasty hotspots but not all of them offer a place that is nice enough to stay around after the food is finished. At Café Cómodo you can stick around because they offer a lovely cocktail menu, plus I personally like the atmosphere. When you enter, Cómodo looks a lot like a typical café in Amsterdam, but walk ahead and you will find a seating area and the open kitchen.
Thank you for inviting us, we will be back!
