Corn is a cornerstone of Mexican food, and Maíz works to preserve traditional corn seeds by creating, eating, and spreading non-GMO heirloom corn. Maíz was founded in 2021 by the owners of Sazon, a Mexican restaurant group in Seattle known for its chilaquiles. Aldo Góngora, his wife Angelica, and sister-in-law Roxana Martin aren’t trying to reinvent traditional, long-tested dishes — they embrace classic recipes of sopes, gorditas, tamales, and tacos with their house-made nixtamalized masa. Located near Pike Place, stop by to snack on delicious Mexican dishes or sip on warm drinks like horchata lattes or Mexican chocolate mochas.
