La Monita is one of several of Bangkok's Mexican restaurants but arguably the best. The interiors are casual, bright and pleasant enough but not an overdone show of Mexico. Flavors hit the mark. Corn and wheat tacos, hard and soft are available, and other items include burritos, tortas, salads, quesadillas and larger plates. Cuban rice is on the menu as well and breakfast, which includes huevos rancheros and chorizo, is served all day. A single taco might only set you back about 70-80 baht, larger items hover around 200-250 and combos cost 300-380 baht. Alcohol is served including margaritas, mojitos, and caiparinhas. Service is friendly and with an expansion in 2010, the place has become spacious and well suited for larger gatherings. Outside seating is available. The location just off Sukhumvit south of Ploenchit BTS station in Mahatun Plaza is quite convenient. Watch their Facebook page and Twitter for specials.
