Incredible tacos

Why you will love it?

The restaurant starts as a simple taco counter, but the backdoor that you might not even notice leads to a sultry cocktail den. Slipping into the hidden bar at the back of the restaurant feels like entering an alternate universe where the worlds of Mexico and France collide.

Our Insiders' Article

Intro

In 2010, Mexican cuisine is listed as a UNESCO Cultural Heritage, just like French cuisine. Although the place is very small, this culinary heritage is highly represented at the Candelaria taqueria, with delicious beef, chicken or vegetarian tacos. A different Mexico in Paris is waiting to be discovered.

Food & Drink

For the Mexican « Street Food » lovers, satisfaction is guaranteed at Candelaria with its tacos, guacamole, frijoles (bean purée) and escabeche (marinated vegetable salad). Everything you expect from Mexican food is here, and at an affordable price too. The Guacamole comes at a price of €6 for example. Once you get to the hidden bar in the back, the prices of the mouthwatering homemade cocktails are between €12 and €14. Traditional Mexican drinks such as Michelada, are also available.

Ambiance

The neon lights of the Candelaria illuminate the street and attract your attention. Out of curiosity, you decide to enter the surprisingly small but welcoming restaurant. But something is not right: people keep coming in and suddenly disappear. The restaurant closes at midnight, but still you can hear some faint noises coming from the back door… The taquería is open from 12:30pm to 11:00pm from Sunday to Wednesday and from 12:30pm to midnight Thursday through Saturday. During the first year, Candelaria mostly welcomed hipsters, but today, many different people come here to get a taco and a cocktail.

Parisianist Fun Fact: The waiters are all Spanish speaking, and will greet all the customers in Spanish. One day though, as 2 customers got into a fight and the police arrived. Their first move was to check the papers of all the Spanish speaking staff: Colombians, Peruvians, Mexicans all working in a speakeasy secret bar… hmmm. It was taken with humour, naturally.

Decor

Heads: a refrigerator, bright lights, a bar and a wooden table. The small taqueria is very classic, yet the waiters disappear a bit too often behind a wooden door. Strange…

Tales: a cocktail bar, with dimmed lights, a comfortable couch and a few tables for two. A totally different atmosphere than the street restaurant which makes Candelaria so special. 

Conclusion

The bar is quickly full as many people like to gather here to discuss the whole night long while listening to Latino music. It’s not a dancing bar, but it’s much more than a speakeasy bar. And for those who want to combine both taco and cocktail, ask if you can eat your food while sitting and a table in the cocktail bar as you enjoy a delicious alcoholic beverage.
