Food: Tapas sized Mexican food. This place is more of a bar than a full service restaurant, so there are no main courses on the menu.
Service: Slow and lackluster. Perhaps the staff are simply trying to mimic what a sleepy Mexican cantina might feel like on a hot evening.
Must try: Scallop and cucumber ceviche, spit roast pork taco with pineapple and habanero chutney, churros
Ambience: Super cool interior with plenty of colourful décor and Mexican trinkets. The “hidden” location ups the hip factor.
Average price per person: HK$300
