A go-to taqueria in the Marais for authentic Mexican food and tasty cocktails.
Yes, we are recommending a Mexican joint in Paris because while in France, you may crave something other than French food. That and Candelaria is a sure bet for good fun and good food. This tiny taqueria, run by a group of Mexican friends, serves up delectable tacos and guacamole for take-out or for the lucky few who can nab a spot at the 6-seater picnic table or stools facing the open grill. But the real fun starts when you push through the unassuming door at the end of the bar to enter a tiny (and kooky) room with a clandestine feel. There you'll discover furry wall hangings and glittering low candlelit tables, perfect if you wanted to make a night of your visit. It gets sardine-tight, but there's a great vibe and plenty of eye candy abounds.
