The answer to the question: Where can I find good Mexican food in Paris is Fajitas.
Completely par hasard I descended the Rue Dauphine towards the river, a route I had never traveled and just before I got there, slam, bang, Fajitas. It is authentic right down to the Vera Cruzano owner, Miguel Garcia, who first came to Paris 25 years ago on vacation and nine years ago opened his restaurant.
A luncheon formule at 11.50 euros changes daily and offers a mini-tour of Mexico but mi amiga y yo opted to start with freshly-made salted margaritas –none of that sickly sweet, gringoesque, pre-mix we drink in the USA with bowls of chips and salsa. Warning: Fearful of killing his customers the salsa is not super caliente but Miguel will gladly give you a bottle of hot sauce.
We started with a Botano, an assortment of chicken and beef rolliotos, chips, refried beans, nopales, chorizo, melted cheese, guacamole and salsa. Next up was Carambola, grilled beef with bacon, chiles, nopales and chorizo served with flour tortillas. A complimentary shot of tequila was the finale.
