Mi Corazon has more tequila and tacos than you could point an enchilada at

Mi Corazon wouldn’t look out of place in its homeland. You're looking at a magic visual combination of wicker chairs, religious iconography and 120+ tequilas holding up the bar. Whet your appetite with a mezcalita – an appropriately intoxicating combination of mezcal, orange liquor, lime juice and a smokey, chili salt rim, and don’t go past the chalupas de frijoles con nopal – handmade tortillas served flat and laden with beans, cactus, lettuce, green salsa and mashed potato (damn straight, gringo). A plate of tostadas de cochinita pibil has the meat thing covered; crisp fried thin tortilla disks laden with black beans, shredded pork, achiote marinade and tangy pink pickled onions. Make sure you’re perched at the bar on Thursdays and Saturdays to catch the live Latino three piece.
