Glendale boasts Mi Corazon, nestled in Kenneth Village blocks below the famed Brand Park & Library. The ambitious and arty cantina opened in 2012 and is the vision of Jeremy Swan, tattoo artist and star of TLC’s “America’s Worst Tattoos,” and wife Vanessa Urzua Swan, who has perfected her recipes with her grandmother’s home-cooking as its foundation.
The Swans credit their friends’ enthusiastic response to her salsa as the element that fired up their ambition to open a restaurant. However, Jeremy acknowledges that they were just as passionate about the idea of making Mexican dishes from hormone free, non-GMO meats and fish. Their hand-cooked chips are the perfect accompaniment to their now-fabled salsa. However, be careful, as you will want to save room for meat, vegetarian and vegan entrees.
Mi Corazon is dedicated to finding and using the best ingredients for our recipes. We are proud to fight against corporate warlords like Monsanto…one plate at a time. Viva La Food Revolution!
