El Gringo 1, Mexican Restaurant, Mae Haad, Koh Tao

El Gringo 1, Mexican Restaurant, Mae Haad, Koh Tao

El Gringo in Mae Haad has closed, there's still an outlet in Sairee Beach

Since a few weeks El Gringo 1 in Mae Haad on Koh Tao has opened again in a new location, near the Safety Stop bar which again is located pretty much opposite the Seatran pier.

If you keep on mind that you're in Thailand, the Mexican food is actually good and I enjoy it on a regular base, just like during my last two visits to Koh Tao during the PADI IE. It's not anywhere near as good as you can get in Los Angeles or Texas, USofA, where I had some fantastic good Mexican grub with my friend Michael who lives in LA and is a food aficionado.

However, back to basics and we're in Thailand and when on Koh Tao, El Gringo 1 is a good recommendation and makes a good change on your Thai diet or other food that you consume whilst inland.

One of our party ordered this very appealing Chili bowl with rice.

I went for this lovely Enchilada with chicken which was juicy and had a good taste.

This hot plate fajita was also among the orders and smelled more than just delicious and made for a great show with the hot plate it came on, sizzling along.

Give it a try and enjoy, caramba!
