Abraham Salum

Komali and Salum - Dallas

Though his studies and career have taken him around the world, Mexico City native Abraham Salum sticks to his roots at Komali, where he seeks to enlighten diners about the nuances of his homeland’s regional cuisines. Join us for a taste of his signature, contemporary Mexican fare at our Día de los Muertos celebration.
