, a hole-in-the-wall Mexican place by Colin Stevens formerly of Ash Kickers, just welcomed a weed dispensary, Sensii, next door.
A week after cannabis was decriminalized on Jun 9, Stevens and his business partner Prajya “Phil” Aura-ek took over the neighboring space and turned it into a weed dispensary.
Despite working in the kitchens of restaurants such as Ash Kickers
and Tortilla Quemada, Stevens also had a vertical cannabis farm that has produced strains for the Government Pharmaceutical Organization for years. Stevens has long been ready to take the retail plunge—it just wasn’t legal yet.
Sensii offers up to 12 strains ranging from Orange Kush (B550/gram) to hybrid Truffle Monkey (B990/gram) with a THC level as high as 26%.
The most popular bud, however, is the fast-acting, energetic sativa Jack Herer (B800/gram), which is enjoyed for its pine-scent earthiness and pungent spice. The buds on sale will rotate periodically.
Tortilla Quemada has been open for two years now and survived the pandemic with their no-Tex-Mex-BS Mexican food. Serving chips and salsa (B130), papas con chorizo (B160), tostadas (starting B100), red enchiladas (starting B220), and even a hearty Yucatan-style breakfast plate of Huevos Motulenos (B220).
Tortilla Quemada Sukhumvit Soi 21/1, 065-237-3307. Open Tue-Sun 11am-9pm
Sensii Sukhumvit Soi 21/1. Open daily noon-9pm
