A Colombian deli with a cafeteria space in Montmartre.
For fans of Latin flavours, spicy sauces, maté or even cachaça, this Colombian deli has everything you’d need to give your evening a boost. A stone’s throw from Montmartre, it sells products from all over Latin America – try arepas (Colombian maize pancakes), Criolla potatoes, bunuelos (round doughnuts for frying) and even the famed traditional Mexican soup pozole.
For keen cooks, there’s cassava flour, mote corn, chuño blanco and traditional guava or milk jam. Plus Chilean and Argentinian wines, mostly Malbec, to go with your cooking. Ask for guidance: owners know their products like the back of their hands and love to chat about them.
Soak up dulcet Spanish voices in the small cafeteria area, where you can sip a Mexican beer and munch on a homemade doughnut. This charmingly authentic Colombian grocery store is a gold mine for anyone who likes making tamales and original Latin cocktails. Or just a taste of sunnier climes.
