London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 25, 2013 -- Federico, after leaving his native Argentina 15 years ago, has worked in some of the best restaurants in Europe, before his curiosity and the quest for knowledge brought him to the UK. He led kitchens at, amongst others, MyHotel in Chelsea, Selfridges and most recently at Hippodrome Casino at Leicester Square.
As could be expected from a country with the highest consumption of beef in the world, the menu features a broad range of steaks, divided into Classic, such as filet or sirloin, and Comedor Special cuts, such as Asado de Tira and Vacio . However, the menu is not only about meat - it also offers a range of smaller and lighter options, such as Empanadas, with 5 filling options, or Ceviche - a medley of fresh cubes of catfish & sweet potato marinated in lime.
"I want to give beef lovers a chance to experience authentic steaks, prepared and served the way we do it in Argentina. Equally, I am delighted to be able to demonstrate some of the other tastes and dishes that make up the rich tapestry of Argentinian and South American cuisine." says Federico
The new food menu is accompanied by an extensive, exclusively Argentinan, Chilean and Uruguayan wine list and an exciting choice of South American cocktails.
Comedor - Spanish for Dining Room.
Our quest is to make our Comedor become your Dining Room. Our promise to you is constant and consistent excellence in offering exciting foods and flavours, served proficiently in a warm, welcoming environment.
Our food is inspired by South America - a whole continent of often overlooked cuisine! And what a continent it is - astonishing diversity of flavours and tastes, plants and animals, arising from the historic melting pot of ancient indigenous worlds of Incas and Mayas and "new" European traditions.
Remember the time not that long ago when sushi was hard to find? With a growing army of devotees, dishes from Peru and Colombia, such as empanadas or ceviche, are fast becoming as popular as flavours from Europe or the Far East. Comedor offers a mouth watering array of Argentinian steaks, meat and fish, as well as a wide choice of chicken, prawn, seafood and vegetarian lighter options and snacks, including an innovative range of salads. In Comedor we can satisfy a broad range of needs and hungers!
