Mikkeller, the Danish microbrewery that opened a bar in Ekkamai in 2014, combines a love of tacos and beer at Tacochela, its new venture in Ari. 

Inside, the decor is fun and playful with rainbow-colored chairs and brightly painted window frames contrasting with the exposed white brick. Painted figures (named Henry and Sally) run across one wall with a giant chili in tow.

From the kitchens of W Retreat & Spa in Puerto Rico, Zoco in Dubai and the two Michelin-starred Annua in Spain, Mexican-born chef Jimmy Rojas Lopez joins the Mikkeller team, bringing his global experience to the table.

Lopez's top pick for produce is Sloane's, whose meat he combines with Mexican spices to create dishes such as longaniza (Spanish sausages with smoked chipotle and spices, B280), served with warm, fragrant flour wraps. The queso fundido (Mexican cheese fondue, B250) also comes with tortillas for you to wrap up gooey cheese and toasted mushrooms in. A tray of chipotle paste, roasted tomato salsa and onion pickles is on hand for those who want to spice things up a bit.

Tacos come heaped with the topping of your choice on either a corn or flour wrap. Try the fried barracuda (B280) coated in a crispy thin batter and drizzled in spicy mayo, or the beef steak (B220) with herby chimichurri sauce.

With 20 different beers on tap, Tacochela hasn’t forgotten its brewery roots, while kegs of margarita-based cocktails add a Mexican touch. Wash down your tacos with some bubbly passion fruit margarita (B260/150ml) in a glass rimmed with Cholula hot sauce, or swig Mikkeller's own beer. The Mikkeller Mexas Ranger spiced porter (B160), Mikkeller SD Mango Berliner Weisse (B360) and Zeffer’s Apple Crumble spiced cider (B220) are particularly tasty.
