At first glance, the Candelaria is a “taqueria”, a typical Mexican restaurant. But open the door at the back and you will be in for a surprise…
Where could all the people who go through the back door be headed? If you want to find out, then follow them. It’s easy; they are going to the bar. That’s right – the bar. Push the famous back door and you will find yourself in another room, a bigger one, in a cosy, speakeasy style. This is the restaurant bar.
On the cocktail menu are some very Latino names: Palomero, Sycamore, Finfino, and some tapas such as guacamole and tortilla chips. At a table or sitting at the bar, sip your drink in a warm and friendly atmosphere. An air of Mexico in Paris, you can almost hear the Mariachi band begin to play!
