Having met in Mexico City in 2013, John Sim and Cati Bego struck upon the idea of bringing a taste of authentic Mexican cuisine to the UK.
While John was a keen amateur cook, Cati and her family had opened restaurants in Guadalajara, San Miguel De Allende and Mexico City itself, and were keen to take their exciting and vibrant flavours to a brand new audience.
With the couple deciding to relocate to London, a deal was soon struck to set up Comensal on Abbeville Rd, Clapham.
That's when the fun really got started, with a manic, six-week programme of refurbishment, long days and short nights leading up to the restaurant’s official opening at the beginning of June 2014.
With all food made in-house by a team of Mexican chefs, and fresh produce prepared on-site in place of pre-pulped ingredients, Comensal is an authentic taste of modern Mexico, in a leafy neighbourhood setting.
