Best Burrito Ever!

Our family of four dropped in the other evening and ordered a few mains to share. We had the pulled pork burrito, pulled pork sliders and chicken nachos. Everything was really tasty, fresh and zinged nicely. No complaints either from our two fussy eaters (6 & 4). Whilst the portions were large and... read more

I like this Mexican joint more than the other well known Mexican restaurants in Soho or Wan Chai. They serve a very nice buffett during lunch too. Portions are large and its a bit difficult to manage if you are alone for dinner.

We wanted to eat somewhere near the Take Out Comedy Club and this was perfect, just 2 doors away. I ordered something fast and got lucky with the salad with mango and blackened shrimps. Hubby also very much enjoyed his taco salad. Caramba! proves that simple food can be done well and be exquisitely satisfying!

If you're looking for a quick fix for your mexican food cravings go to this place! Be it during lunch or dinner. And I was able to request a cocktail drink that is not in their menu (or I guess that is a priv for regular? dunno :D) Will go back there soon!

This place serves up Mexican food of a reasonable standard although I think it could be better. I personally would prefer them to offer diners a spice option where the dishes are heated in the kitchen rather than by the diner at the table. You can whack whatever hot sauce on you like but nothing compares to the fusion of... More

Matched only perhaps to Coyote in Wan Chai but then again it belongs to the same group so that makes sense. Very cramped space but that adds to the atmosphere. Go with a group of friends and order a pitcher Margarita.

This is a great little casual Mexican restaurant providing your standard, tasty Mexican fare at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is good, though the tables are a little close together due to the small premises. A nice place to go for filling, tasty meal up in SoHo.

The title speaks for itself, I've been here multiple times, and would always come here if travelling to Hong Kong. In fact I am already looking forward to going here next month! I've had the Nachos with are the best ever, especially with the beef, chunks of steak all over with all the classic topping you'd expect, nothing missing. The... More

I was in HK for 3 weeks on business and built up the craving for Mexican. This place was a great cure. It is a nice sit down traditional restaurant. Will you think you are in Tijuana? No, but you will still get great Mexican food and be a whole lot safer then TJ. I am a Chimichanga aficionado and... 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.
