    Whisper Quiet Hotel in Patong?

    Hilarious. Way back when, a mate had a bungalow complex on Soi Nanachart Rawai (Roger) and in his bungalow rooms were signs, "Don't bring your Katoeys back here", as he had robberies where when the blokes passed out (the regular guys not the guys in skirts) & the shemales rifled other rooms. Never forget the look on a French workmates face from BKK when I got him a room there and he turned around to see that sign......"ah yea, sorry Bertrand, clearly Florian doesn't stay here, ha,ha,ha"

    Patong - The Wake

    Not familiar with Chinese currency against the baht, but tell you what,,, 30thb to the US dollar is feeble. Where is 1997 when US travelers were getting 50thb to the dollar(?), European exchanges similar. TAT talks "quality tourists" yet the strength of the baht leaves them with package Chinese and Russians. Patong was a whole lot more fun (and better looking) when there were peeps with pockets full of baht on a super exchange rate. Now, no.........

    Best Mexican Food In Bangkok

    Sorry to dig up an old thread you guys, but dam_n(!) I was disappointed last week, whilst in Bangkok for the first time in half a year, dreaming of a Poblano Chile Relleno at Los Cabos, when lo and behold, I get off the BTS at Asoke, and no Los Cabos. They went under, huh? Can someone now point me to the best Mexican in Bangkok excluding Sunrise and Coyote please, been there done that. Thx, GOM

    Best Mexican Food In Bangkok

    Oh man! Grumpy taking a hit for Awohalitsiktoi ! Sorry Jorge, as I PM'd to you, I have not been to your restaurant yet, would not have put down your fajitas if I actually hadn't tried them, that would be bad. I posted that I've never understood the attraction to fajitas and am more of the combo grande type. I'll look to try your place toward the end of the month, will post here my results. Cheers, GOM Sorry Grumpy, i didn't mean to point you or anyone, So i have to Thanks Awohalitsiktoi. I am very apologize with you man, and i hope to see all you here soon. Actually I am planing a Thai Visa comunity party and work shop where we can cook and share experiences together and i friendly live forum, is any one interested to organize it. I would like to call also for a evening "make it yourself? burrito or tacos with all the truly Mexican food fanatics like us. If anyone interested, please do not hesitate on contact me Have a nice week Jorge Bernal No worries Jorge, just didn't want you to think I was the one that posted a bad experience with your fajitas when I hadn't been to your place yet. Yes, "make it yourself" night. My Mom used to do this, she called it "walking tacos". You would take either a tortilla, a taco shell or a tostada shell and walk around the table set with all the makings and whip up your own creation.

    Best Mexican Food In Bangkok

    Tacos and Salsa moved to Soi 18 (end of the soi) Sukhumvit. The food is generally good with the exception of the most expensive item on the menu: beef fajitas. Try the less expensive tacos, enchiladas, and other items instead. So that's the Asoke station, exit same side as Los Cabos and walk up the street a couple blocks? Yes, Asoke, then walk towards Windsor Suites or Bie Otto (that direction) on same side of the street as Los Cabos. It is a long walk, actually. Once you get to Suk 18 you are supposed to be able to find a free motor-taxi (by the car place) that will take you to the end of the Soi (very end). I could not find the free taxi. Anyway, I would avoid the beef fajitas and try the other stuff. Be sure and let us know what you thought about the place. As posted earlier, not a big fan of fajitas, so yes will get their macho grande combination or whatever they refer to it as and some guacamole. The walk sounds like a couple of margaritas will be in order too. Thanks for the info and for sure I'll post my thoughts on it. Cheers, GOM

    Best Mexican Food In Bangkok

    Pre-Colombian Aztecs wrapped foods in tortillas, so maybe you are just talking about the word "Burrito"? Mexi-American 1923. I find that a very silly question. I am clearly talking about modern burritos, not all Mexican or Mexican-American foods. I was only commenting on your post as to the recency of the burrito, which I guess is subjective. Your concept of recent might be different than mine. I would say a food that is close to 100 years old (or more) for me is not so recent. Something like a deep fried Snickers bar (late 1980's invention) I can understand as being recent. Now where is that deep fried Snickers cart................maybe I should wrap a tortilla around it !
