Komali Owner Emanuel Salinas

Emanuel credits his childhood upbringing for helping him craft Casa Komali into a unique and adventurous Mexican restaurant and cantina.

Raised in Mexico by a vegetarian mother who believed in holistic medicine, Emanuel developed an eclectic taste, always craving to combine distinct Mexican flavors in new ways. At age 24, Emanuel moved to the States to earn his accounting degree from the University of San Francisco. He also immersed himself in the hospitality industry, managing several restaurants in San Francisco.

Ready to put his own stamp on Dallas Mexican restaurant scene, Emanuel is proud to introduce Casa Komali, a unique combination of cafe, comida and bebidas in the Dallas Uptown district.
