PRODUCT REVIEW · A few bits and bobs from Otomí

Comal, Prensa and Botanero from Otomí Bristol

Otomí recently inaugurated their online shop. They got a little bit of everything, from food and kitchenware to gifts, souvenirs and novelty items, all imported from México. These three artifacts, a hand painted clay botanero -which includes a large plate plus 6 ramekins-, a comal (smooth flat griddle for cooking or re heating tortillas) and a tortilla press are really good value for money. 

The comal is specially sturdy. It cooks the tortillas like no regular pan could do, and the press works really well once you get the hang of it. The clay botanero  is really pretty to look at, but above all it's very handy when you have visits and want to offer them a good selection of bites and dips (even more so if you put in it some guacamole, pico de gallo, soured cream, refried beans and totopos, yum).

Order online or go visit their little Mexican grotto in Clifton Arcade if you live in the southwest, it's well worth it!
