A very reliable source tells FBF that the Baja Taco Mobile starts touring the Sois of Hua Hin tonight, the 14th of December.
It was rumored that the Baja Taco Mobile was seen at the Hua Hin Bike Week on the 5th but that may have been a practice run out of sympathy for the bikers.
Here’s hoping for all the best for Fred and that he will send a menu this way for posting and give us an idea where the Baja Taco Mobile might be found.
At the very least, keep your eyes out on Bintabaht and probably near Billy’s Bar in the Hua Hin Bazaar.
Word is that there’s going to be a Rib Night at Billy’s Bar on Thursday but the bad news is that it’s already sold out. There must be some Canadians in town. Hope there are pictures.
Reliable sources were saying a couple of weeks ago that the Baja Taco Mobile would be up and running in a few days. It must have booked passage on that Hi Speed Ferry from Pattaya as neither have been seen or heard from.
Unless TETCBM occurs, it looks like the Hua Hin Rock Festival is still a go. Seeing posters and sound trucks around town talking about it so keep 19 December open.
Rotary Club of Hua Hin will be having their weekly meeting at the Grand Hotel on Friday in preparation for the December 4 elections. Last day to accept Charter Candidates is 18 December. There will be no meetings on 25 December or 1 January.
Plearnwan is now open again and it looks like the back 40 is complete. Haven’t been in so don’t know if any of the new shops have occupants but now the folks from Bangkok have a new place to bump into each other again.
Just talked to Fred and it looks like the Baja TacoMobile is a go for the first week in November. He wants to wait until the ASEAN Summit mobs have gone and Hua Hin is back to normal before powering up. He promised to call and give us an update as the time approaches.
BKS, the transport people, are the folks with the new minivans between Victory Monument in Bangkok and Hua Hin. They’ve also started the same service for Pranburi. The stop in Pranburi is just outside the entrance to Tesco Lotus and they have trips in each direction at least once an hour from O Dark 30 until late evening. With this new service, folks wanting to go direct from Bangkok to Pranburi will not have to pass through Hua Hin and the length of the trip should be about the same as the minivans take the bypass rather than the coastal road.
FBF has also noticed that the BKS minivans coming to Hua Hin drop off passengers well south of their office downtown so apparently one can go almost as far as Khao Takiab in one of their vans.
FBF just talked to Fred and he confirmed that the Baja Taco Stand is no more.
However, there’s a possibility he may be going mobile, as in a cart. He made the rounds last night selling tacos and burritos and did well. Billy and his mates were beneficiaries and Billy was happy also.
So, after a month or two break, we could very well be seeing the Baja TacoMobile tooling the streets of Hua Hin.
Have a good break, Fred and be sure and include Bo Fai in your rounds.
This is not good news. Just in from the rumor mill but from one of the more reliable mongers:
I had what might be my last burrito from BT last night. They close at the end of the month (next week). Too high rent and not a great location for that biz.
This is not good at all. FBF has posted here before about how the location is not convenient for his nighttime partaking of burritos and haven’t been there since Fred gave up on opening during the day.
Hope he looks for a better location so that FBF can once again have some of the best Mexican food he’s ever paid for in Thailand.
