Comilonas Private Kitchen Special Spanish Eatery in Sai Ying Pun

[01/11/11] 

We love our private kitchens but once they open they tend to be quickly overrun and lose their unique intimacy. Not so with Comilonas, a Spanish private kitchen in Sai Ying Pun. It’s far enough away from Central to put off plenty of casual diners so let's hope it remain as hidden as Mubarrak’s billions.

Serving homely Spanish cuisine, highlights include chorizo in red wine, black ink paella (which looks like charcoal but tastes like Christmas) and caramelized orange with ice cream. The food is of a very high standard and is produced by Carrie, a Chinese lady married to a Catalan. It’s Spain via Hong Kong and all delightfully confusing.

Their sharing menu is HK$380 for 12 courses and it’s BYO so it offers excellent value while the setting adds a little something too. It sits in a run down building which looks like it's got typhoid for tap water (your mother in law would not be impressed) and Comilonas constitutes a single, comfy room that can hold up to 20 people. The space features a traditional Chinese tiled floor, a long table and some cool lamps designed by Carrie’s charming boyf. They only serve one group per night (minimum of 10 people) so there’s the added bonus of always having the place to yourself.

Come-to-lonas.
