Taco 'bout a party

There may not be many, but there are definitely some solid Mexican restaurants in Hong Kong that serve up a slew of tasty, exotic fare. We're talking about tacos. Undeniably one of Mexico's finest exports, we've lined up for you some of the best places that can make all your taco-filled dreams come true – and they’re all available for delivery too!

RECOMMENDED: Hop back to the other side of the world and try our pick of the best ramen joints in town.

 

Caliente

Restaurants Mexican Tsim Sha Tsui

Tsim Sha Tsui’s patron saint of Mexican food is the colourful upstairs joint Caliente. Offering everything from nachos to churros and everything in between, we highly recommend trying the taco de cangrejo, a flavour-packed taco with crab claw meat and salmon roe, or the classic taco el santo, which is filled with pulled pork and smoked chipotle aioli. You can opt for the restaurant's homemade soft shell or hard shell corn tortillas, and choose any three or five pieces from the menu to make it into a combo!

Chino

Restaurants Mexican Kennedy Town

This hip joint in Kennedy Town serves up Japanese Mexican fusion, courtesy of chef Erik Idos, a man with 10 years of experience working as executive chef at the acclaimed restaurant Nobu. That should tell you all you need to know about Chino’s Japanese credentials, but he’s no slouch on the Mexican side of things either. Indulge in the ox tongue and salsa vera cruz taco, wagyu beef taco with guac and shishito, or the chicken tinga taco with pickled onions and see for yourself.

El Charro Mexican Cantina

Restaurants Mexican Pok Fu Lam

This Cyberport Mexican joint serves some rockin' tacos. Choose from a soft or hard shell with fillings such as pulled pork, seasonal vegetables, and shredded chicken or beef. If you're feeling a little fancier, the house special tacos de pescado are stuffed with Baja California battered fish, while the pastor tacos topped with slow-cooked seasoned pork, roasted pineapple, cilantro, and pico de gallo are pretty awesome, too.

El Macho

Restaurants Mexican Central

Dig into Mexican fare with a kick at this Sai Ying Pun eatery. Against a colourful backdrop featuring art inspired by the Día de los Muertos celebrations, enjoy dishes such as pulled pork tacos, veggie quesadillas, and the house special El Macho burrito loaded with beef chilli con carne, fried beans, salsa, and guac.

Taco Chaca

Taco Chaca

Restaurants Sai Ying Pun

Building on a delicious foundation with an LA born and bred cook, this spot plates up the sort of flavours you’d get from a taco truck on the West Coast or family-run stand in Texas. It’s casual, affordable and simply exists to serve mouth-watering Mexican snacks. They offer more than 10 different kinds of tacos – slow-braised ox tongue, grilled chicken, pulled pork, battered pollock, rib eye beef – you name it they've got it. Our favourite? Mid-Wilshire taco. An awesome Korean bulgogi beef and kimchi creation.

Taqueria Super Macho

Available for delivery via the restaurant group's delivery service, Go, TSM has two new burritos – grilled steak and cheese burrito and habanero-roasted chicken Burrito – available exclusively on the restaurant group's premium delivery service, Go. A great option for those looking to enjoy a vibrant and satisfying meal in the comfort of their homes.

Te Quiero Mucho

Restaurants Mexican Sheung Wan

Housed within Central’s micro-hotel, Mojo Nomad, Te Quiero Mucho is a buzzing two-storey eatery that welcomes guests with a modern take on traditional Mexican fare. Helmed by Guadalajara-native chef José Alfonso Rodríguez Portillo, the restaurant boasts a mouthwatering selection of house special tacos, including Katsu-Dilla (fried chicken, habanero mayo, and cheese) and carne asada (wagyu beef, macha sauce, chestnut puree), and The Trump (beef tongue, crispy chicharron, and salsa verde). Don't forget to look out for sharing plates such as the classic guac with homemade tortilla chips. We promise you won't regret it.
