REVIEW: Corazon Soho

What?

Corazon, a casual dining Mexican.

Where?

Located on Poland Street, just a stones throw away from Oxford Circus

 

The Vibes?

Casual, bright and fun! You feel relaxed the moment you step in.

 

What We Ate?

The Menu is small plates and sharing style so we got a bit of everything!

I don’t think it’s possible for me to go into a Mexican and not get Tortilla’s and Guac! I have to say FINALLY! A restaurant who has priced this at a reasonable price! £5.75 ! Normally £10 in most places so was happy about this!

I absolutely love Tostadas so we got these:

 

BRIXHAM – white crab, brown crab crema, pasilla chilies, grilled spring onions

CONTRAMAR marinated yellowfin tuna, chipotle mayo, crispy leeks, avocado

 

 

 

BARBACOA lamb shoulder & liver – rubbed in housemade adobo, wrapped in banana leaf – cooked for 7 hours and served with salsa borracha* & lambs lettuce – AMAZING!

 

 

 

 

CARNITAS slow cooked pork belly & collar, in a marinade of o.j., Mexican oregano, cinnamon & garlic, served with crispy pork skin, pickled jalapeno & salsa verde

 

 

 

 

 

CAMOTES grilled sweet potato, jalapeno mojo, queso fresco (v)

 

Dessert

 

I am not normally a dessert person but we were highly recommended the COCONUT FLAN – the classic caramel treat made with coconut milk, topped with toasted coconut. Wow! This just melts in your mouth! Absolutely amazing!

 

 

 

 

What we Drank?

 

It was lunch time so one drink was enough but had the gorgeous MEZCAL COOLER which Vida Mezcal, pomegranate, basil & soda

 

Our Thoughts?

Really delicious, beautifully presented and so reasonably priced.
Their Set Menu is so reasonable £16 2 courses or £19 3 courses ( before 6.30pm and after 9.30pm every day) Perfect for pre or post theatre!!!
