Quick & Convenient

This place reminded me of the small but colourful bars you would see in the likes of Bilbao. Location wise it was very convenient from the famous escalators. The food was reasonably priced and tasty. Service was quick but not overly friendly

Located beside the Central-Mid Level Escalator, the Taco Loco is a nice place to eat some Mexican food. I ordered the Gringo Nachos; I don't know if these are real Mexican names for food: I suspect they aren't, but I don't care as long they taste good. And they did. Perhaps the price was a little bit high, but this... More

travelling with teenagers is never easy and more so when it comes to food. trying to find that mix of quality and value is always a challenge - we'd had a busy day and were all a bit tired and grumpy and couldn't decide on a food option. Tacos were not top of the list for our hong kong experience,... More

Colourful and inviting, this tiny restaurant attracted us enough to hop off the escalator. The place was hoppin'! For Tex-Mex in Hong Kong (the farther I get away from North America the lower my expectations get), the food was pretty tasty! Try the barbacoa pork! Was really expensive for a taco joint though so I might not go back while... More

This place was awesome fresh burritos and tacos, great cocktails and a fab location! Try the bbq pork or chorizo and potato!! The place is not fine dining but is perfect for a relaxed lunch or dinner!

Overpriced, probably due to the location bad service and substandard food, I think this place is hot and cold as it has had some good reviews but I will not return after my experience

A small Mexican restaurant that had great margaritas and nachos. Good location to people watch because it is right next to the mid-levels. The service was average and had a fun Mexican ambiance.

We were welcomed very rude with "sit down there". The waiter was hectic and seem not to be happy about new customers. We asked "Do you have Wifi here?" and got a "Nooooooooo" including a hand high in the air. The food was very poor. We had pulled pork enchiladas and chicken quesadillas. All smashed together in an aluminium foil... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
