It takes two Hombres to Touché

The Setting

Far from what you'd expect from a Mexican restaurant, we're sure. Touché Hombre combines authentic Mexican food with flavours of American pop culture. Expect West Coast American hip hop music, electric red light vibes and walls draped with murals of famous rappers in the downstairs section. The drinks menu looks like the bible of the antichrist. You can choose to have your cocktail poured from a chicken jug, which dare we say, is more Mexicana than Americano.

Upstairs you'll find a wall donning red fluorescent lyrics from a Drake song: "I Live For The Nights I Can't Remember, With The People I Won't Forget"; everyone seems to want to instagram this one. There's also a large mural by the acclaimed Austrian street artist Nychos. What we love about the upstairs area is the bar that runs along the centre of the room with tables either side, tactfully placed so you're constantly with drink. #Whoopdeedoo, hello hangover.

The Menu

Touché Hombre's obviously going for Mexican cuisine and its intent is to do it right. So Mexican in fact, that it imports all its key ingredients from Mexico. And we definitely had some flavourful dishes that tickled our taste buds. The Elotes callejeros (B120) was too good to be true; grilled Mexican corn on the cob with chipotle mayo, cotija cheese and lime. Yum. We've never had it done so fancy either, the cob was sliced into pieces for us so there was none of that awkward biting into the cob and looking gnarly AF while trying to nibble the corn.

The Cangrejo (B380) -- a crispy soft shell crab salad with "crema de Mexicana", the crab was deliciously crunchy and juicy but the "crema" could have been mayo for all we knew; also, why Mexicana when there were bits of pomelo in it? Pomelo is Southeast Asian, is it not?

The Pulpo chorizo (B325) was a taco comprised of grilled octopus, chorizo, pistachio arbol, lime and avocado. It tasted good but it sadly wasn't as amazing as it sounded. The Kingfish laminado (B295) was, however, a killer! Some Sashimi grade yellowtail with aguachile and citrus segments that popped in our mouth. But our favourite dish by far was the dessert. OMG. The Tres leches (B195), Touché Hombre's version of three milks cake with horchata ice cream. It came with pieces of sponge cake and it was precisely what the doctor ordered.

Insider's Tip

Touché Hombre takes its drinks seriously too, we'll have you know. And it goes all out Mexican with them too, with a list that is purely tequila and mezcal based. All its shelves are heavily stocked on agave spirits sourced directly from Mexico. We highly recommend you try the Los cocos locos (B295) when you go, which they say tastes like making love at midnight, or any other hour of the day! We say it tastes like a kinky piña colada. #yum.

Value & Verdict

We absolutely love the vibe of Touché Hombre and cannot think of a cooler and quirkier hang out spot right now, what with the music, the dim as funk lighting, décor that dazzles and its closeness to Beam. Probably the best designed Mexican restaurant in Bangkok. The food is good and we reckon with time will get even better. The drink list is very niche and agave-centric so you'll either love it or hate it. We love it. 

Tres leches.
