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.

Jura – still so much to be discovered

I was in the Jura region last month on a quick getaway with my boyfriend and the dog. It was not my first time in the region, but it was my first stay long enough to develop a decent understanding of the land, its people and their wine. The Jura is in a small pocket […]
