Went to Corazon De Maiz for the first time in November. Started with the three taco option and had pork, beef and chicken tacos. They were great, I loved the pork one the most. After went back to order some veggie nachos (I clearly needed a cheese fix) and they were the best restaurant nachos I've never had. They weren't soggy, and full of toppings and flavour.

bwc Thanks! That will help with my menu planning on my next visit. I hadn't noticed which tortillas they use for burritos but that's my bad since I only eat Mexican food once or twice a year.

@Pastalover: They do use corn tortillas for tacos and tostadas. Not sure I've ever seen corn tortillas for a burrito anywhere though..

Since I will be leaving my downtown job in a week I plan on maximizing my foodie adventures in the area while I can. Since Corazon de Mais has been on my "to try" list for a very long time I decided this is as good a chance as any pay them a visit. The resto is tucked in a small area at the north end of the Byward Market Square. Menu items include tacos, burritos, nachos, and tortillas among other things. I decided to try a burrito settling for beef with everything on top (guacomole, salsa, rice, refried beans,lettuce, tomatoes and cheese). Everything was very fresh, the portions are generous and the service is pleasant. For $7.90 it's a real bargain. I am already planning a return visit over the Christmas holidays while I am off so I can eat my way through the menu-;)

My only complaint - and it's just a small one at that - is that I would love to see them use corn tortillas and have more seating available.

Looooove Corazon! I've been here about a half dozen time now and it has quickly become a favourite of mine. You can mix and match a taco trio and eat quite well for around $10. Very friendly and sweet staff, and great quick food. The pulled pork is fantastic. Yuuuummm...

I know I know, usually there is no need for redundancy, however I do believe there is a need here!

Consistently consistent.

Fresh, Healthy, Affordable, Generous Servings, Friendly Staff AND DELICIOUS! = 5 Stars in my books.

Had the large chicken burrito today, and it was just as perfect as the one I had 6 months ago.

And that Garlic Jalapeno hot sauce MMMmmmmmmmm....

This is the best tortilla soup! Perfectly seasoned broth, chunks of chicken, slices of avocado and much more.

Wow, can't say enough good things about this place, we went for the first time last week and liked it so much that we went again this week. We've tried the tacos, burritos and tortilla soup everything is really good and fresh. All of their homemade sauces are fantastic.

Pictured is a half chicken - half pork burrito. We couldn't make up our mind so you can mix it up.

Discovered this place while hunting for something to eat in the Market with my sister.

I often find the "fast-food" style offerings in the Market centre to be lacking in terms of taste and originality, and most especially in terms of expense.

Corazon De Maiz was reasonably priced, incredibly fresh, and delicious! We shared a large burrito and a Jarrito (SO happy they carry these) and it was enough to leave us both satisfied. They also don't charge extra for guac, and their staff was incredibly friendly! I'm in love.

Corazon definitely trumps my former Mexican favourite Ahoras by a longshot!

I second what everyone else is saying. This place is a great find. Super friendly service and they were very nice at making a veggie version of the soft tacos for me (during my veggie week). Instead of the meat, they put grilled veggies and added a side of guacamole free of charge. I also tried the Tamarind soda which was not too sweet and the right fizz.

I'm going to join the rest of the cheerleading squad for this cute little hole in the wall of Byward Market Square. Service was super friendly and enthusiastic. Tables are colourful and comfortable.

This little pork taco ($3.50+tax) was spectacular. A warmed corn tortilla, slathered with a layer of saucy black beans, tasty slow-cooked carnitas, super fresh chopped pico de gallo, a side of guacamole, and free access to 5 different squirt bottles of sauces -- some spicy and some not.

The flavour profile is through the roof. I can't imagine a tastier, healthier, more happy-making snack than this. Huge thumbs up!

Thank You Fresh Foodie! I haved loved huitlacoche since I first tasted it at the original Rosa Mexicano in NYC. It's not on the menu there any more, although they still make it for me when I go back. I am going to have to dive in and try to recreate something similar at home now that I know I can find it here...

Available here. I noted it because I know people have been looking for it in the past (Forum - Authentic Mexican ingredients).
