Addictive Mexican Bites in the Byward Market
A relative newcomer in Ottawa's Byward Market, Corazon de Maiz is my hands-down, taco destination of choice. The place is tiny, the menu limited (mostly to just the finest, juiciest, smokey, flavour-packed tacos, burritos, tostadas and quesadillas), but the tastes, sounds and smells of this stand have me coming back continuously. Whether it's the cooler full of Mexican tamarind soda, the addictive salsas and hot sauces, the traditional Mexican tunes in the background or just the genuine, welcoming atmosphere of this family-run stall, Corazon de Maiz has taken this gastronome's heart.
