Our foodie-relatives who live in Hong Kong took us here for dinner on a Monday night. The place was semi-deserted, but that was a good thing! The restaurant is divided into two sections. ONn the street front is the taqueria that's styled like an Los Angeles food truck. You can go up to the counter and grab a corona while gorging on some tacos. Inside is a sedate dinner hall that's quirkily styled reminiscent of a hacendado's mansion. We were served the tuna tostada, Gorditas, Wagyu Tacos, and Salmon Crudo (all accompanied by guacamole with nachos) by the attentive and well-informed staff. The food was amazing! While the idea of discovering Mexican food in Hong Kong is a little strange, the result was exceptional. If your idea of Mexican food is what's on the menu at Taco Bell, then you'll be blown away by the complex flavors in these dishes. The tuna tostada was especially a hit. The price wasn't too bad considering we ordered two of everything for a party of 4. At the end, Socialito was an excellent surprise, even as accustomed as we are to the variety of exceptional restaurants in Hong Kong.

A rare find in hong kong - somewhere that really ticks every box. Inside this fab restaurant you'll find a place to enjoy superb Mexican food, some excellent drinks delivered to you with first class service. The buzz in the outside bar is great and the inside is a relaxed and cool atmosphere. I love this spot on Wyndham. Highly recommended.

The tacos and tostadas we had were juicy and super tasty thanks to a faithful recreation of these Mexican recipes. The place is right in Lan Kwai Fong and in the evening it's extremely lively. You can enjoy lunch at the front of the restaurant while people watching during the day and dinner in the evening in the dining room at the back. We will definitely go back for dinner and enjoy a full feast.
