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. Stop by to snack on delicious Mexican dishes or sip on warm drinks like horchata lattes or Mexican chocolate mochas.

Just outside of Pike Place Market, Maíz is located on Pike Place.
