Bangkok is a cosmopolitan city with a dynamic food and beverage scene. There are several Mexican restaurants scattered about the Thai capital, serving everything from Tex-Mex to Mexico City street food. Here is a short-list of the Big Mango’s top cantinas and taquerias.
Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner – this coming Saturday, to be precise, and Mexican restaurants throughout Bangkok, Thailand, have special promotions planned.
You can expect special menus, free shots, discounted drinks, DJs spinning discs, and lots of cocktails.
A few of the eateries will even have pinadas – with surprise gifts inside.
A couple of Mexican eateries in the Big Mango even have full-fledged fiestas planned, and one of the biggest fiestas will be for members only.
What’s interesting is that Cinco de Mayo, which means’ “May Fifth” in Spanish, is much more popular in the United States than in Mexico, where it is celebrated in only one state: Puebla.
