Paris's newest cafe is the place for tacos and post work cafe people to mingle with other industry types. Chilango is open when it wants to be at the moment but you'll find the 'who's who' of hip Paris Spanish/English speaking expat community there most later week/end evenings rubbing elbows and fanning their mouths after spoon fulls of hot sauce.
Like Cafe Chilango on Facebook so they can feel internet love.
Cheap beer rules at the moment, which is understandable for a place the specializes in fantastic €7 cocktails and high end Mexican street food. (Oxymoron you say? Prove me wrong then.)
Aside Corona competitor Sol is Triple Cauwe's newest beer, a Pils. None of which are things to jump up and down about. So I spirited in a home brew from my friend (and #LPBW photographer BroDog for life) Clément.
The Beer Moves Sideways
Is a breath taking first batch! And I don't just say that because I adore the brewer. Label design is spot on, including an inspired quote :
In the dream dusk
We walked beside the lake
We watched the sky move sideways
And heard the evening break
The beer is a crisp, slightly hazed indian pale ale balanced with citrus and fruit hops that zing across the palate without turning your tongue sideways. Very well done brother BroDog! I can't wait for the next batch.
And if you are free on Friday the 27th come check out mine and my buddy's CROSSING THE BORDER taco take over at Cafe Chilango.
There will be local beer.
There will be Tex mex.
There will be great music.
And of course, there will be Nitch - in ample amounts.
