One of my great discoveries recently has been the Mexican restaurant “Bocamexa” at the bottom end of rue Mouffetard. I had walked past several times, always appreciating the delicious smells coming from the kitchen, when finally I rally myself and a friend to go and check it out.

In short, it was wonderful! The restaurant itself is no frills, but the space is bright and colourful. The menu consists of solidly Mexican dishes (there’s no fancy fusion here!) Burritos, tacos or quesadillas – that are composed in front of your very eyes. It’s fast food… but it’s also fresh and tasty.

The really great thing is the fact that they keep serving all day (known as “service continu” in French) seven days a week. You can grab a bite at 3 or 4 o’clock in the afternoon and no-one is going to raise an eyebrow.

We grabbed a burrito each (they were enormous AND spicy – perfect!) and sat outside on rue Mouffetard to enjoy a few rays of sunshine and pretend we were no longer in Paris. Average cost of a burrito – ten euros.

P.S. The restaurant is part of a wider Mexican-French alliance. Check out the website below to find out about the cultural events that they organise.

P.P.S. The Señor Boca food truck is also part of the Bocamexa family.

“Vintage 2017 Report” Or “How To Protect Against Frost”

It’s becoming an all-too-familiar scenario: a beautiful springtime with plenty of warm sunshine but followed by a sudden dip and freezing temperatures. A cold winter does marvels for the vineyard but once bud-burst has taken place, a cold snap can have catastrophic results. You may remember that I wrote about this already in 2016. Vintage 2016: […]
