About Momcorn

Momcorn is a relatively young business that was established in 2010 and specializes in ancient Latin American recipes to create healthy, convenient and quick meals. The restaurant serves a varied menu of flavorful, corn-based foods from Mexico, as well as Central and South America. All dishes are prepared to order in an open kitchen and are made from scratch using authentic techniques.

Momcorn is a great alternative to fast food but is still quick. In fact, many of its "grab'n go" snacks are natural, healthy, nutritious, different, varied and delicious.
