Comal is a restaurant on a quest: The Globeville lunch spot opened in late 2016 with the goal of training low-income women (many of whom are immigrants and refugees from Mexico, El Salvador, Syria, Ethiopia and Iraq) in restaurant and business skills. But such noble ambition doesn't mean much if a restaurant can't serve up great food — and here Comal succeeds admirably. Monday through Thursday, Mexican food is on the menu, and while that menu changes regularly, it always include recipes handed down from generation to generation. As you'd expect, those time-tested recipes are fantastic; our favorites include vegan tacos made with slow-cooked, surprisingly meaty jamaica, chiles and onions, and thick, freshly fried chips made from housemade tortillas. On Friday, though, Syrian cooks take over the kitchen and serve the creamiest hummus and the most pillowy housemade pita in town, along with other hard-to-find dishes such as stuffed artichoke hearts, bulgur salad and the transcendent dessert called kanafeh, make of mild white cheese surrounded by shredded pastry and soaked in syrup. You'll want to sample everything the kitchen turns out — which is why you'll keep returning to Comal, time and time again.
