At the moment (2013) Mexican food is once again hot in Paris and you can pay a lot of money for acceptable “Mexican” dishes but when I want a real taste of Mexico I head for Iticate.

At the moment (2013) Mexican food is once again hot in Paris and you can pay a lot of money for acceptable “Mexican” dishes but when I want a real taste of Mexico I head for Iticate.

Lidia (Mexico City) pictured here with her amiga, my daughter Patricia, and Mariane, a young regular customer and  Ange (Corsica) have captured the feel and flavor of a taco stand in Mexico or Los Angeles. Mini-tacos (corn) Al Pastor, Carnitas, Nopales, Champignons are bursting with flavor.
