Restaurant Candelaria in ParisCandelaria (Paris)

Ran by Quixotic Projects (Les Grands VerresHeroLe Mary Céleste), this unassuming taqueria has been hiding an incredible speakeasy since 2011. At the end of the most highly frequented Parisian passageway (second only to the RER A in Châtelet), lucky guests take a seat on haphazardly-placed barstools, squeezing in for a bite of these unfussy tacos (juicy barbacoa beef with cilantro, or lamb with fried onions and carrots), generous quesadillas with melted cheese, and corn chips with creamy guacamole. Once you’re in the shadowy ambiance of the back room, let yourself get whisked away to exotic lands with some of their well-shaken cocktails, like the Salar Atacama (bourbon and vermouth seasoned with pink Himalayan sea salt, €14) or the Jarochos (mezcal, Martini bitter, pineapple, lime and bitters infused with nutmeg and chili, €12). // T.V.X.

FEELING THIRSTY? There’s Negra Modelo beer (€7) and cocktails in the backroom (€12-14). ¡Salud!

PRICE: Tacos €3.50 a piece. Set lunch menu €13.50.
