Mexi&Co.: A Mexican grocery store/restaurant in Paris.

Mexi&Co.: A Mexican grocery store/restaurant in Paris.

Mexi&Co. is located in Paris’ Latin quarter and is definitely the place to visit if in need of canned or dried Mexican goods such as Serrano peppers, tomatillos, masa (cornmeal), nopales (prickly pear cactus pads), dried chili pods, hot sauce, chipotle, and tortilla chips (8€—at least it’s a big bag) or frozen corn tortillas (in a pack of 200). Mexi&Co. has enough on its shelves to help you cook a very decent Mexican meal, which is unquestionably a plus in a city like Paris where good (and cheap) Mexican restaurants are desperately lacking. Mexi&Co. is also a restaurant (I won’t talk about their food since I haven’t eaten there yet) and a catering company. Their menu offers classic items such as chips and salsa, guacamole, quesadillas, nachos and burritos. If you are looking for good tequila such as Patrón while in Paris (and you don’t mind paying twice it’s U.S price!) I know of two places where to find it: Izrael in the Marais and Publicis Drugstore’s Epicerie on the Champs-Elysées.

Le Panthéon: where France’s great men (and one woman) rest in peace.

Le Panthéon: where France’s great men (and one woman) rest in peace.

Le Panthéon, Soufflot’s masterpiece, was ordered by King Louis XV as a dedication to Sainte Geneviève, the patron saint of Paris. The king attributed his recovery from illness to prayers made to Sainte Geneviève. He set the first stone in the ground in 1764. In 1791 the basilica was turned into the national Pantheon, but was still used as a place of Christian worship during the 19th century. It wasn’t until 1885, on the occasion of Victor Hugo’s funeral, that the Pantheon became a secular place for good, devoted to the memory of the nation’s great men.

The tour of the crypt where Hugo rests (along with Voltaire, Rousseau, Dumas & Marie Curie to name a few) is accessible through the back of the Panthéon. For a sweeping view of Paris climb the stairs to the external colonnade at the base of the dome (access by guided tour only, from April to October, at 2.30pm and 4pm).

After touring the dome, staring at Foucault’s pendulum or wandering the many galleries in the crypt, you can head for a drink at Le Rostand just a few blocks away towards the Jardins du Luxembourg.
