Wednesday 22nd December @ the Bamboo Mexican in Chiang Khong.

I was hoping to set up a pre chrissy diner at CSL in Si Satchanalai with Suwat, but unfortunately he will be away for 10 days in the period that would be most convenient.
The last Wednesday of the Month, is 29th December 2021, but that it too close to the new years & the traffic mayhem, so we need to move the date forward for safety reasons. Suwat cannot do the preferred date of 22 December. So.....

The date for the last GTR Dinner in 2021 = Wednesday 22nd December.
Please mark your calendars.

The town= Chiang Khong.
The dinner venue = Bamboo Mexican.

After the CSL in Si Satchanalai, the Bamboo Mexican is the most popular GTR Dinner venue, & you get a real good Mexican nosh up meal.

Mim wants to do a similar set up to the dinner on 24 June 2020.
The limit then was 30 people, but Khun Taew, Mim's Mum says 25 is the maximum she can cook & cater for.
In June 2020 she prepared 30 set meals
15 Chicken Burrito Meals
15 Chicken Fajita Meals
Nachos
Mexican Rice
The price was 250 baht a head.
She would like to do something similar for this one 22 December 2021.
The exact menu & price to be confirmed but it will be very similar.

We've had GTR Bamboo Mexican Dinners before



For Accommodation in Chiang Khong

Get in & book your rooms now wherever you fancy.
Tammila

Day Waterfront

Teak Garden

Nam Khong Riverside

Special Request

1. Due to the low business & lack of trade at the moment, the Bamboo Mexican does not carry a big stock of booze. However Mim has suggested drinkers contact her in advance to advise what they want to drink & she will get it in.


2. Mim also says that not every one can get into to eat at the same time, so we suggest be patient, & maybe go in 2 or 3 waves. Have a drink at the Chiang Roy or Rin Bar while you are waiting.



The new Bamboo Mexican Location, is walking distance from the Chiang Roy & Rin Bar.

Please confirm if you are going. Mim needs to know numbers to prepare food.

Limit 25 people!

More info to come.

Update, Khun Taew, Mim's mum, the cook would like a limit of 20 people, as she believes that is all she can cope with on the night.
Without Jib, there is only Mim & Mum Taew to cook & look after customers, so they are finding it hard going with walk ins & groups nowadays.
We trust everybody understands the situation.

12 people have committed so far, only 8 places to go.

A tip off for Wednesday night, it is cold in Chiang Khong at night now. 9 Celsius last night I believe, so make sure you have a warm jacket for sitting outside during the evening.

Mim @ Bamboo Mexican will also bake some of her magnificent brownies & fantastic loaves of wholemeal bread to take away. So don't forget to support her a bit extra with brownie & bread purchases.

After an adjournment to the Chiang Roy Pub & Rin Bar to share the love & business with fellow struggling friends.

Rin Bar is still the Rin Bar, but with Danny now back from Belgium. Rin Bar continues to struggle badly with no backpacker tour groups. So if you are ever in Chiang Khong for a night, please pop in, have a drink or two & share the love. The little businesses need you more than ever.

Bring on 2022 & more GTR Up country dinners to share the love with the little out of the way places & businesses.
A big thanks to all the guys who come & make this little events so rewarding.
