Mario Leal, consul general of Mexico, has lived in Hong Kong since July. He has found the city, which has a small Mexican population, has only a few Mexican restaurants. Here we bring the cuisine of his homeland to a wider audience. Coyote Bar and Grill, Gaylord Building, 114 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai, tel: 2861 2221. 'This restaurant has live music every Thursday afternoon. During Mexican holidays it is decorated in the colours of the Mexican flag - green, white and red. It serves good chicken enchiladas made with corn tortillas. Tortilla to Mexicans is like rice to Chinese.' Agave Tequila y Comida, 33 D'Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong, Central tel: 2521 2010. 'Agave serves so many different brands of tequilas. My pick of food here is the chalupas, which are made from ground corn - similar to tortillas only thicker. On the crisp chalupa you put beans, cream, lettuce, cheese and chicken. The tacos al pastor are good too. You first put meat, ham and pineapple on a stick and grill it. Then you lay this on a tortilla with onion and chilli sauce before rolling it.' El Taco Loco (pictured), 7 Staunton Street, Central, tel: 2522 1262. 'This is a new restaurant, which serves alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages such as horchata, which is made from rice. I like the burritos, which are a common Mexican snack. You roll a flour tortilla with beans, meat, lettuce, tomatoes and guacamole and hold it in your hands to eat. It's a complete meal.' Caramba, 26 Elgin Street, SoHo, Mid-Levels, tel: 2530 9963. 'I haven't eaten there yet, but many people tell me the food is good. I'm planning to try the burritos and tacos because that's the best way to compare different restaurants, by tasting these popular dishes.' Cafe Deco, Levels 1 and 2, Peak Galleria, 118 Peak Road, The Peak, tel: 2849 5111. 'You have to reserve a table here because this is such a popular restaurant with its beautiful view from the Peak. It serves all kinds of food, from sushi to Indian cuisine to good Mexican food. I like the grilled beef, called carne asada, which is served Tampiquena- style [with peppers and onions]. This dish is about $150 but it's a really good deal.'
