COYOTE Mexican Bar & Grill has long been a popular choice for expats looking to tuck into Mexican cuisine. Its former branches in Bangkok (on Soi Convent, and the corner of Sukhumvit 33) as well as its bustling operations in Patong Beach, Phuket, and Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui, have seen to that – wowing customers with hearty servings of tacos, quesadillas, fajitas and more piquant favourites, not to mention one of the largest margarita selections in Thailand (over 75!), all offered at great value for money.
The brand’s design and concept – terracotta décor, blonde wood tables, friendly staff decked in denim, Latino playlist – is implemented at the new branch with aplomb, and the laid-back vibe it creates perfectly sets the scene for enjoying a hearty feast.
The extensive menu, divided between nachos, snacks, soups, salads, sizzling meats, and traditional Mexican favourites, boasts tasty highlights galore.
No surprise, then, that a full-rack of the Smoked baby back ribs (Prime Australian baby back pork ribs marinated with barbecue sauce, served with chilli roast potatoes, smoky beans and honey Dijon slaw. Full Slab: B575++. Half Slab: B385) almost take up half the table.
Don’t fill yourself too quickly though: plenty of other highlights await, including, among them, the Grilled chicken tacos (B355++ for two soft-baked shells, served on a bed of red salsa, black beans and Mexican rice); the whopping Grilled steak burrito (B395++); Chicken fajitas (B455++, served on a sizzling hot skillet); and Grilled chicken enchiladas (B385++).
Fancy a dish purely for yourself? Try the Mesquite prime rib eye steak (Chargrilled Australian rib eye with cracked black pepper in chipotle gravy served with chilli roast potatoes and asparagus. B675++); or Grilled salmon Vera Cruz (A Mesquite grilled salmon fillet with a Vera Cruz sauce of tomatoes, green olives, capers and jalapenos. Served with Mexican rice and black beans. B575++). Delicious!
It’s a deal: Daily Happy Hours, from 4pm-7pm and again from 10pm-Midnight, offer margaritas (glass and pitcher) and local beers at buy-one-get-one-free.
