Socialito Taqueria in Wyndham - more Mexican for HK

p0lst3r | Sep 10, 2012 08:36 PM

Right next door to Wagyu in the spilling nightclub end of Wyndham, some serious money has gone into this place by the people from Lily & Bloom. I guess their thoughts on Mexican for HK are this -- do or die!

Forgive me for writing this up without actually eating there (promise to do so in coming days) but I did sit at the front and have a few drinks on Saturday evening and had a chat to the chef.

Fancy restaurant space inside which turns into a nightclub later in the evening (hip crowd - blah). Can check that out when you go to the restroom, but it's all about the street kitchen. Stools and small/tall tables outside with full view of the long parallel-to-curb kitchen so can watch everything being cooked for both inside and outside. What impressed me was how happy and coordinated the kitchen staff appeared - looked like they were actually enjoying themselves at 9pm during Saturday night service. Only been open ~2wks.

Menu sounds pretty damn good.

Tacos: pork belly, Mexican chorizo, steak, duck carnitas, yucatecan grilled swordfish, grilled mushrooms.

Ceviches: red snapper, acapulco (octopus, oysters, shrimp)

Tostadas: tuna, pulled pork

Pasteles: braised lamb
Tamales: fresh corn (can't recall seeing tamales at any of the other Mexican places in HK)


Serving food on the street tables until 2am Fri & Sat and until 12am other nights.
