Where to get Taco Salad

2018 Oct 16
The owners have let me bring my owner container for salad. Less waste!

The Large Salad with Chicken ($9 + $1.80 for meat) is my go-to order here. I've settled on always getting it without chips or dressing, then I can squirt the delicious house made salsas onto it.

This is a flavourful and juicy feast! The lettuce is shredded iceberg, which is the only negative thing anyone could say about it. I find the iceberg lettuce works well as a base here because there's so much else going on.

This week I asked if I could have beans on my salad instead of meat. They were super friendly about it and refused to charge me the normal $1.50 extra for added meat. So I ate an absolutely wonderful and nutritious light lunch for $8 plus tax/tip. I skipped the dressing and added a little of the green salsa and spicy salsa. So incredible!

Corazón de Maíz was one of the reasons I was thrilled to accept a job in the ByWard Market. The food is spectacular without pretense and the people who run it are so friendly that it feels like home.

The extra $1.50 for meat in the large ($8) salad here gets you a massive pile! This slow-cooked pork was just too much meat for me. Next time I'll ask for less meat or maybe see if they can give me beans or avocado instead. :-)

A mountain of shredded iceberg lettuce, lots of green olives, chopped red bell peppers, pico de gallo, guacamole, and tortilla strips for under ten bucks. Taco meats are $1.50 extra and come piled generously (see chicken in photo).

I didn't like the pungent lime dressing very much but it is really unnecessary. After mixing in the guacamole and pico de gallo I found the salad delightfully tasty. Squirting in some of the delicious hot sauces from the self-serve condiment stand just kicked it over the top. So awesome and delicious... I'm totally looking forward to my next one!

Visited for the first time today and enjoyed a takeout taco salad with al pastor as the meat option. Super tasty marinated pork with just a hint of heat. Nice fresh salad with excellent black beans. It’s $12.50+tax, which is about right for the quantity and quality. Yum!
