Isabel Caudillo's El Buen Comer welcomes you into the warmth of a Mexican home kitchen. Born in Mexico City, Isabel cooks the food she was raised with, the richly flavored dishes of her childhood.
Isabel makes the authentic Mexican dishes of El Buen Comer from scratch, using organic masa and hand-rolling enchiladas. At the heart of her menu are guisados, the staple of Mexico City homecooking. Slow-cooked, earthy sauces stewed with meat or a vegetable, they are served alongside rice and beans. Even the more familiar elements of the El Buen Comer menu — tacos and enchiladas — are made according to Mexican tradition, with meltingly soft shredded beef or chicken stewed slowly in Isabel's signature green and red sauces. Isabel also serves a variety of other homestyle dishes, ranging from albondigas (savory meatballs in tomato sauce) to coditos con crema, a pasta and cream dish that has defined comfort food for generations of Mexicans.
