Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Till recently, those fresh off the train at the Gare de l'Est would've been hard pressed to find a decent meal in the area. But now, nestled among the Kurdish eateries and iffy Indian curry houses, there's a small Mexican restaurant that's worth a detour. From the outside it doesn't look like much; but once you cop an eyeful of the generous portions, friendly staff and friendlier prices, you'll thank us.
The pan-Latin American menu includes everything from burritos, tacos and empañadas to chili con carne and fajitas. It's all eminently edible in a satisfyingly fast-foody kind of way, even if the tortilla was a little over-cooked to our taste. When we asked the owner if they ran a delivery service, he said that he'd tried it, but the delivery guys weren't professional enough. Fortunately for those who don't live in the area, he hasn't completely abandoned the idea – but next time round, he's planning to deliver the food himself. We'll be the first to place an order.
