Cali Mex Sukhumvit 11

Cali Mex is a Californian Style Mexican cuisine restaurant which currently have 3 branches reside in Bangkok from Sukhumvit to Sathorn area serving Mexican food cravings of local and expats in Bangkok. The ambiance are quite lively as you could see street of Sukhumvit area which is perfect for my Sunday brunch.

Starting off as the waiters are friendly and fluently recommend their best-seller menu with suitable cocktails with the food. Ordered Magarita and Hot Mamacita.

Hot Mamacita – Olmeca Blanco, Fresh muddle Jalapenos, Basil, Fresh Lime, Agave.

Turn on the heat with Fresh muddle Jalapenos. I personally like the idea the the drink is spicy, salty and playful at the same time.

Nachos with Chipotle pulled pork.

Generous quantity of Guacamole. Extremely suitable for appetizing groups.

Cali wings with Smokey BBQ sauce

These wings are pretty tasty and juicy. Just wish it is a little bit more spicy though.

Quesadillas with Angus Steak

Generous toppings from Guacamole to fresh greens and Salsa. Tortillas are cooked properly with balance fillings.

Wraptor

Wraptor is a recently opened Mexican restaurant around Aree area of Bangkok which promotes using honey in Mexican food. Getting there is not difficult but a bit tricky since you got to cross the road with high intensity of cars all around. Way to pump those adrenaline before trying new stuff.

The place is full of natural light which is not ideal for a late lunch in Bangkok with excessive amount of sunlight around. Staying there around 2-3 pm is just way too hot for my experience which air conditioner does not help much.

[18/04/2018] The place informed me that they have improved air condition situation. I will observe this statement next time I visit the place.

Wraptor specialize in wrap as the name clearly suggest. Unfortunately, I’m not in a mood for wrap and decided to go with some alternative choice.

The secret of this place is NES classic edition and Famicom mini in a secret corner just to bring you back to 8 bit world while waiting for the food.

Mexican Honey Beef Steak with green Salad

Serving portion seems to be decent. Adding honey brings sweetness with a balance level of sweetness intensity contrary to sugar. The texture of steak are good but, a little bit chewy. Salads and tortilla are standard.

Say Cheese! (Pork)

My friend ordered this because of her cheese cravings. The cheese are well-melted with spice and seasoning. The texture are enjoyable and not too oily. This prove that simple meal could be satisfying and looks could be deceiving. This menu just became my favorite choice when my next cheese craving comes up.

They also have honey in the store in case you’re interested.

As I am in Kobe. Kobe beef is a must try delicacy. I went for a Steakland near Sannomiya station which just recently renovated. The queue took about 20 minutes until they invite me inside for a beautiful marbling Kobe beef meal.

After finishing preparation, the chef started cooking the beef using Teppanyaki technique. It is one of the most interesting sight to see how well-trained cooking technique.

The beef texture is so tender. Does not take a long time to finish this exceptional meal. No wonder why Kobe beef are so famous in the Culinary world. Personally, I think the sauce does give some kick which make the beef more interesting in term of flavor.
