The team behind the Mexican comfort food served on Poland Street at Corazón Taquería boast a combined CV including the Riding House Café, Fischer’s and Sartoria. With help from Corazón’s in-house tortilla machine, chef Paul Daniel will be plating up a list of ten signature tacos, which include homemade chorizo verde (a chorizo made with herbs rather than spices) with confit onions; carne asada, citrus and soy-marinated steak with jalapeno crema; and barbacoa, which consists of 12-hour slow-roasted lamb rib, neck and shoulder with a spicy Pasilla pepper rub. While tacos are the main event, other dishes include ceviches, tostadas, and salads.
Corazon also offers brunch, which ranges from the Huevos Benedict, a taco stuffed with ham hock hash, eggs, caramelised onions and green chilli hollandaise to the Divorced Eggs, with fried eggs, crispy corn tortillas and salsa. Of course, those with a sweet tooth are not to be left out, and they’ll be knocking up buttermilk and blue corn pancakes with caramelised bananas and toasted pecans.
The casual design is inspired by Mexico City’s Condesa neighbourhood.
