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.

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.

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.

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.

8 out of 13 turned up for a super relaxed, lively arvo consuming Mekong Pizzas, Beer Lao & then coffee + almond raspberry croissants at the Flow.

It was a somewhat decadent arvo you could say, and was most enjoyable.
