Cocktails and Mexican street food in the 11th arrondissement.
Walk up the rue Saint-Ambroise and the word 'mezcal' on a white menu, stuck to the window of a little bar is enough to give Los Güeros away. Not to mention the mouth-watering smell of cooking and Spanish conversation wafting from the place.
There’s a snug room, with bare brick walls, big tables and an open kitchen at the end. There are five cocktails, such as the 'Beso Negro' with a base of mezcal, campari and vermouth. The Mexican twist on a Negroni (€10) was full-bodied but not quite a match for the other cocktail bars we’ve tried. Instead go for the Mexican version of Pilsner – Ocho Reales, which matches perfectly with their homemade guacamole. Or the Tecolota; a hot Mexican sandwich with breaded chicken escalope, avocado, black beans, onions and sour cream. Not diet food but delicious and quick. ¡Salud!
