A coffee date with friends today turned into the discovery of a fabulous new Mexican restaurant, El Guacamole near the Canal Saint Martin. I’m not often in the 10th, but after today’s walk through the charming neighborhood, I will be exploring it more in the future. May I present to you El Guacamole.
Being from Southern California (and the daughter of Mexican parents), my standards for the cuisine are high. El Guacamole did very well. It’s not easy to get the authentic ingredients to cook certain traditional dishes, but I really enjoyed their cactus (nopal) taco. I loved the horchata, a traditional Mexican beverage made with rice and cinnamon.
I find it interesting to see how much tacos cost around the world. I found a pub in Royal Leamington Spa, England, that has tacos for £6, and another restaurant in Paris that has them for 6€…each. Priced at 3€50, these tacos are reasonably priced, and the tortillas were so good!
Lovely location, delicious food, and cosy atmosphere. See you at El Guacamole!
