    The best pizza around, in the North of Thailand, seems to be @ the Mekong Pizza at the Golden Triangle; and is confirmed by the many rave comments by riders who have eaten there.

    GT Rider has had a GTR dinner there in 2019, with 13 people attending & everyone loved the meal & event.

    It's become a favourite 65 kms ride on mine across Paradise Road & dinner from Chiang Khong on a regular basis.
    What started yesterday as a hook up for 2 people morphed into a wonderful night out with 10 people; and what a fantastic night it was.
    After we closed the Mekong Pizza we carried on at May's Lucky Cafe 120 metres away to wind up another magic night. Anyone who has been to the Lucky will have been highly impressed, cheap cocktails & delightful service from May & her family.

    Such are the good times to be had at the GT with a pizza & a few cocktails @ May’s that GTR proposes a bi-monthly Mekong Pizza night at the Golden Triangle.

    The invitation is open to all riders who want to hook up at the GT & have a pleasant evening chatting about bikes ‘n trips.
    Get on your bike & go for a ride.

    The time = 6.30PM
    @ the Mekong Pizza.

    Looks like this wont get off the ground just yet with the Corona Virus lock down.
    The first one is bound to be a beauty once everything gets back to normal.

    Let's kick this off finally
    Tuesday 30th June 2020
    is the first Bi-Monthly GTR Mekong Pizza night @ the GT

    mekongpizza - Google Search

    Roughly Every 2 weeks on a Tuesday hook up at the GT for a Mekong Pizza.

    Tuesday 30th June
    Tuesday 14th July
    Tuesday 4th August
    Tuesday 18th August
    Tuesday 1st September
    Tuesday 15th September
    Tuesday 5 October

    Note that the Tuesday will vary, when it clashes with a last Wednesday end of the month GTR dinner, so that occasionally we skip a Mekong Pizza that week.

    Notably, the newbies - Jozef & Graham - from Chiang Mai both proclaimed it was the best pizza they have ever had in North Thailand!
    So there you go..

    Sadly The Lucky Cafe just 100 metes away @ the GT is no more, so Tim & Vero & I made do with the Friendship Cafe in Chiang Saen for a series of nightcaps.
    upload_2020-7-15_20-15-0.

    Many thanks to the guys who turned up.
    The next one should be Tuesday 4th August, visa depending.

    The view going home along Paradise Road.

    Cheers guys & gals.

    I am good for that. If you care for a day ride somewhere on the 15th prior to dining, that will work for me too.
