Project Manager Andres Velasco tells me that cuisine inspired from the streets and markets of Mexico City is the specialty of Corazón Comedor which has opened at 29 East Victoria Street, the former home of Ca’ Dario Pizzeria (Ca’ Dario is open for business as usual nextdoor). “For lack of a better word, let’s call it traditional,” says Velasco. “This is the most traditional style, like when your mom cooks for you, or your grandma cooks for you. That is the inspiration behind it. We want to make it like you are eating at home, or eating at your mom’s, your grandma’s, your aunt’s. We offer tacos and quesadillas but it is totally different that what you usually find around town.”

Velasco says they specialize in Guiso which is a traditional and homey Mexican dish prepared by braising or in stew. “Guisados is our main thing,” says Velasco. “We make tacos out of all of our Guisados. We have vegetables, chicken, pork, beef, and shrimp from seafood.” Corazón Comedor is open daily 11 a.m.-9 p.m. They will soon start offering breakfast and open at 8 a.m. Call (805) 679-5397 or visit
