I have got the love bug of Mexican food from bf, whom has introduced me to Zambrero, my first Mexican joint in Bangkok.
Since then, I keep my eyes open for Mexican food joints, and have stumbled upon Sunrise Tacos at Silom Road. Walking into on a Friday evening, the restaurant was enjoying brisk business .. mainly foreigners. The restaurant was dimly lighted; not easy for food photographs. Staff were attentive, and I appreciate that they were friendly to both local (aka our table) and foreigner customers.
I like their complimentary ‘salsa bar‘ .. there are 12 types of salsa, take as you like. We only managed to try some, such as the Sunrise Salsa (roasted bell peppers and onions), Tomatilla, Roasted Jalapeno, Chunky Tomato and Guacamole. Go for Roasted Jalapeno for that jalapeno heat ..
Bf ordered Horchata (79 baht++), a cinnamon rice milk, supposedly a family recipe from the Jalisco region of Mexico. I am not a fan of cinnamon; one sip is enough for me.
Nachos (155 baht++), described as homemade tortilla chips with four cheeses, dotted with jalapeno peppers and pico de gallo (aka salsa fresca), was as cheesy as it should be.
Fresco Burrito (285 baht++) was a good choice for sharing. It is a burrito filled with Kobe ground beef, Mexican rice, black beans, shredded lettuce, cheese and chunky tomato salsa. Their burritos are served with a choice of Mexican rice and beans, salad, or hot homemade tortilla chips. We choose Mexican rice and beans as side.
Total bill: 681.94 baht for 2 pax
++ There is an additional 10% service charge and 7% VAT
