This year Méjico proudly hosts its Cinco de Mayo Gold Fiesta in celebration of its first anniversary, holding the biggest, liveliest tequila party with an open bar, drinks stands, contemporary Mexican cuisine, and light entertainment.
Mr. Lawrence Cordes, Group General Manager, Aldama Foods (Thailand) Co.,Ltd, says, “We are delighted to celebrate this milestone and celebrate our achievements in the past year. We opened our doors and dared Bangkokians to try a unique way of eating authentic Mexican food and we have been delighted with the response. Through the hard work and dedication of our team, we have had a truly successful year.”
Méjico features sophisticated, modern dishes from all over Mexico, which prides itself on offering modern Mexican cuisine made using seasonal produce and the freshest ingredients available from Mexico and local organic producers.
Méjico is also home to Thailand’s biggest tequila bar, with over 200 types of rare, hard to find tequilas, a drink known for its origin and popularity in Mexico. It’s the perfect addition to a modern Mexican restaurant. Most people know tequila as being a party drink. But at Méjico, it is served in different ways and the drink itself becomes much classier and sophisticated like single malts or cognac.

About Méjico: Modern Mexican Restaurant and Tequila
Méjico at Groove @ Central World is a bustling modern Mexican restaurant & Tequila bar. With an upbeat atmosphere, friendly service and modern authentic flavors, this is not Tex Mex! Think of Mexican slightly spicy taste with a fun & modern twist. The open kitchen and Taco Grill presents food prepared from a mix of raw ingredients imported from México and garden-fresh produce from across Thailand, including Chiang Mai’s Royal Project. With a market-to-table approach, fruit and vegetables, such as jalapeños and avocados, are always exceptionally fresh as they are harvested from the farm and delivered straight to Méjico on a daily basis.
Méjico makes its own guacamole, ‘smashed’ table-side – from the peeling of avocados to the mashing of ingredients in a stone molcajete. The dish is served alongside home-made golden banana chips instead of ordinary tortilla chips.
Thirsty? Méjico proudly carries Bangkok’s largest selection of 100% Blue Agave Tequila, including exclusive hard-to-find brands. In total there are over 200 different Tequila brands. Some puritans prefer the raw, untamed flavors found in Blanco Tequilas, while others prefer the developed flavors of Reposados and aged Añejos. At Méjico, there are flavors across the entire spectrum and the staff are always happy to share their knowledge, offering customers a Tequila experience rather than simply a shot. Méjico serves Tequilas in proper glasses according to their age categories: a Port glass for Blanco Tequila, or a Brandy snifter for aged Tequila to allow you to enjoy the variety of aromas and flavors. For a truly authentic taste, ask the server for complimentary sides of Verdita (mint, coriander, lime, jalapeño and pineapple) or Sangrita (orange, tomato, pomegranate, apricot and smoked chili) alongside your Tequilas to sip and savour with your Mexican bites along with ice cold Mexican beers.
