How it all began..
It all began with a heartfelt, stomach-led desire and a simple (yet brilliant) idea in 2007. Greg Lange who grew up eating tacos and enjoying top-of-the-line authentic foods and high-quality service in the USA, wanted to change the predominate word on the street (or internet blogs) that said, ‘There is no good Mexican food to be found in Bangkok’! “What? How is that possible?” Greg asked of his beloved city–the city that has the best of everything and there has since seen, over the past couple of years, an exponential growth in Mexican cuisine. After a detailed brainstorming session with his friends in Bangkok, Greg came to realize that the lack of good Mexican food in Bangkok boiled down to one simple thing...TORTILLAS. Being a natural entrepreneur, owning other restaurants in Thailand, Greg decided that it was time that Bangkok had an authentic restaurant. Not just any tortilleria, but one that made real corn tortillas and not the tasteless and brittle harina (or processed corn flour) tortillas that are commonly found in the markets and used by many restaurants. As he explains, “It’s like the difference between making instant mashed potatoes (just add water to a cup of dry flakes) and making mashed potatoes from real potatoes. The comparison in taste and quality; well, there really is no comparison”. So, the journey started. The Sunrise family now includes Chef Luis (from Colima, Mexico) and chef Ezequiel (from Michoacán) and 186 other dedicated staff members that can be found at eight locations in Thailand. All of our dishes are inspired by recipes from our executive Mexican chef Luis and chef Ezequiel are based on the food he prepares for his family in his own kitchen.

At Sunrise Tacos, we make our flour tortillas from fresh homemade dough on our El Tortilla Presso (all are 100% cholesterol free using canola oil). Every dish on the Sunrise Taco’s menu was inspired, perfected, and approved by our talented chefs from Mexico. We only offer dishes that capture the heart of real Mexican style and flavour. At Sunrise Tacos Mexican restaurant in Bangkok, we start with corn imported from the USA to make masa and cook our corn chips fresh throughout the day using trans-fat free rice bran oil and corn oil.
