Komodo purports to serve "dangerously good food."
I'll admit it's good. There's nothing dangerous about it, though. And that's what's holding it back from being great.
Komodo 2.0 tacos -- seared skirt steak with jalapeño aioli and southwest corn salad ($3 each).
Blazin' shrimp tacos -- spicy Singaporean-style shrimp with sour cream salad and cilantro ($3 each)
Meatballs with Romesco sauce -- pork meatballs topped with Spanish red bell pepper sauce ($5).
Komodo failed in this respect. However, the food definitely has potential. If Komodo would just turn it up, it'd be quite something.
Light a fire, Komodo. Unleash the dragon.
