Thai food is surely some of the best cuisine in the world. But eat it often enough and you might get the hankering for something different, a little variety. Bangkok is the sort of cosmopolitan city that can satisfy any desire. Thailand meets Mexico? As unlikely as it may sound there is a growing abundance of Mexican restaurants popping up in Bangkok. For North American travelers who have spent long periods in Bangkok, Mexican is one of those cuisines that seems to come up in the "what do you miss?" conversation. But if you crave a burrito or a taco or just some chips and salsa, Bangkok can set you up.
Coronas and margaritas are easy to come by and jugs of margaritas are happy hour pleasures (dangers?). La Monita tops our NileGuide list of Mexican foods with a strong background in the taquerias of southern California. Don't worry: these are not the kinds of places that make reasonable facsimiles of Mexican food using the local equivalents. El Pastor, guacamole, enchiladas -- it's all the real deal and guaranteed to satisfy any cravings for Mexican eats.
