You have to find a way to whittle down the options to the very best.
Café Corazón is known for using locally sourced ingredients, which is evident by the freshness of their fare! It’s a quaint little restaurant, but is exceptionally welcoming nonetheless. The decor is vibrant and entertaining, and I’m all about a restaurant’s atmosphere! We sat down on this sunshiny day to enjoy some shrimp tacos and chilaquiles.
Fried strips of corn tortillas topped with tasty chorizo, a red sauce made from a blend of spicy red peppers, melted cheddar jack cheese, onion, lime and cilantro crema, loaded with black beans, avocado, and cheese sprinkled on top. I assure you, if you dare to creep out of your comfort zone for this dish, you won’t be disappointed. I mean, look at the ripeness of that avocado! And this dish is served in one heeeeeaping helping.
They were paired with some pinto beans and rice as well, in true taco plate fashion. Although I enjoy the typically authentic tacos you’ll find at any Mexican restaurant, I love to go the unconventional route as well from time to time! And when I say “from time to time,” I mean “always.
