    La Monita Revisited

    ...here for brunch after almost a year away: scrambled egg and sausage quesadilla, Huevos Florentine, chips and guac, salsa, margarita(s)...all hearty, flavorful...and (in the case of the Margarita(s)) thirst-quenching...

    Tom ... looks great.

    I sort of like 'fun food' and it seems to fit that category?

    I tried to find your original visit but only came up with ... La Monita Bangkok

    Maybe a link to your first visit ... and a partial shot of your shirt for the fashionistas on here

    Nice wee spot. Was at a birthday party there a few years ago.

    Tom, did you ever visit Mexico, and if so, how do you compare the Mexican Mexican food with the international versions we get around the World.


    (Upon landing in China, one was quick to notice not many of our favourite Chinese dishes from the Chinese restos back home were on the menu)

    ...traveled from the El Salvador border to Mexico City...never once saw a quesadilla or a burrito on a local menu...La Monita offers "Tex-Mex" which does to Mexican cuisine what American restaurants did to Italian cuisine...no seafood, tamales or interesting sauces at La Monita, but I understand the owner had a taco truck somewhere in the US and knows what most paying customers want...

    was in next door (billy's smokehouse on saturday)
    ended up oredering from La Monita
    they get the basics like the pico de gallo very right
    the enchildas, my dughter's quesedillia and i forget what the wife ordered were solid but unmemorable

    its very good for Bangkok and wish i;d been there fro the lunch menu which looked better to be honest
    we won it at wemberlee
    we on it in gay paree...

    Last time I had Mex food was in a pub in Boulder Colorado.

    Not a big fan!
