Cali-Mex’s second flagship location doesn’t disappoint, with an extensive menu that’s sure to please even fussy eaters.
Cali-Mex is always on our go-to list when we’re craving a Mexican fix and ever since it opened its second flagship Hong Kong location in Sai Ying Pun last year, we’ve been regulars. We love the family-friendly, neighbourhood feel to this restaurant, so adults and kids should both come away satisfied.
Let’s start with the menu. It’s got all the favourites you’d expect (think burritos, tacos, enchiladas and quesadillas). We like that you can choose to swap out the chicken, beef or pork for Impossible meat, too. You can also personalise your meal by selecting your own spice level (mild, medium or hot), and we always add the homemade guacamole for an extra $20. We can never resist the Mexican choices, but don’t overlook the other stars on the menu. We’re talking about the numerous grill items such as rib eye steaks, baby back ribs, Atlantic grilled salmon and Cali-Mex surf and turf. Your little ones certainly won’t leave hungry.
Just for the adults, there are beer and white wine taps at the table so you can keep yourself topped up. Of course, there’s also a full Brooklyn-inspired bar, Williamsburg, which specialises in small batch gins and ryes. With around 60 different types, you’ll be spoilt for choice. It’s certainly well worth a visit next time you’re in the hood.
The venue boasts itself with family-friendly elements like high chairs and a big interior space, so you can enjoy the meal to the fullest extent with your friends and family. Did we mention they also do catering? So if your kids are fans of Cali Mex’s quesadillas and burritos, it could be a great hassle-free option for parties, too!
