It might have been in town for less than year, but Cali-Mex Bar & Grill is growing fast and is already opening a third Bangkok outlet on Sukhumvit Soi 11, focusing on a fresher, more sophisticated look and wider choice of menu options.



Riding on the success of the brand’s Bangkok debut with the Sukhumvit 22 outlet last July, Cali-Mex Bar & Grill Soi 11 features an expansive selection of favourites aimed to appeal to discerning diners who frequent this eclectic lower Sukhumvit entertainment and dining quarter.

 

Cali-Mex Bar & Grill American-Mexican restaurants has its origins in Hong Kong, with 20 successful outlets throughout the territory. Now the brand is making significant inroads into the thriving Thai dining market, with three completed outlets and plans to open a total of 20 stores over the coming three years.

 

The new flagship Sukhumvit Soi 11 outlet features a spacious 150-square-metre dining floor with seating for 150. Along with a variety of authentic Taqueria-style Mexican favourites like burritos, quesadillas and tacos, the menu also includes glutenfree, vegetarian and vegan-friendly options.

 

The expanded menu also features a selection of starters like the best-selling Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Chilli Con Carne and Sizzling Garlic Chilli Prawns plus main dish options like Grilled Chicken Parmigiana, beer battered Fish & Chips and Prime Rib-Eye steak, served sizzling hot and grilled to perfection. The bar– with its Williamsburg, Brooklyn (NY)inspired vibe – boasts a selection of more than 40 small-batch gins and 30 bourbon/whiskey labels, along with a range of craft cocktails and martinis.

The Cali-Mex Bar & Grill concept offers a refined dining environment, with dinerlike booth seating complete with individual tableside beer taps—a signature CaliMex feature.

The Sukhumvit Soi 11 branch is open daily, from 10.30am to 2.30am. Call (02) 015 8100.
