Taco Tuesday and Cinco de Mayo on the same day? What more inspiration do you need to get out for some much needed air or get a delivery in to enjoy that soft or crispy shell stuffed with your favourite filling. There are many great Mexican taco options in Hong Kong, but we’ve laid out some fish alternatives to keep this Cinco de Mayo fresh.
Whatever you choose to be your taco this Cinco de Mayo, enjoy that taco moment. Stay safe and healthy, and don’t forget to post pics of your favourite foodie moments on the Dishtag app.
These fried fish tacos at Limewood at Repulse Bay are always on the menu, but why not treat yourself on Cinco de Mayo? Post WFH sun-downer? Hike down to Repulse and then a couple of tacos to recharge? Or lucky enough to be out and down on the beach for the day? Whatever your situation, these cute tacos with chipotle mayo and braised purple cabbage sure will bring a “sonrisa” to your face.
From the beach to the class of 181 at Fortnum & Mason, named in honour of Fortnum’s address in London’s Piccadilly. Set within Victoria Dockside’s cultural hub of K11 MUSEA, the white, green and red of these posh mackerel & caviar tacos sure do look like they were designed for this day! Nos gusta!
If you need more a local spice to your taco filling, why not try the Shrimp Tacos with szechuan oil marinated pineapple salsa at Little Bao. Crispy, colourful, and has a kick? What more is a taco experience about? You can also stay at home and enjoy Little Bao if you want to avoid any groups in Causeway Bay right now. Check their website or Deliveroo for details.
The fresh fish on this gorgeous taco at Blue Supreme is the absolute star of this (photo) show. Set on a quiet street between Hollywood Road and Queens Road West, those who know what this Modern American Bistro has to offer, know. For those who don’t, why not try new things this Cinco de Mayo?
Not sure how the guys down at Chino have been able to cram 3 juicy shrimps into this a single taco shell, but it sure is inspiring! This year they’ve decided to create their own theme originally named Chino de Mayo (we see what you did there guys…), a special 5-taco menu available this coming weekend if you cant make it down on Taco Tuesday.
Mucho Mucho Mucho
If this Pescado taco or the 6 other delightful taco options at Te Quiero Mucho do not cheer you up, how about tequila? This little gem of a taqueria in Ovolo hotel in Sheung Wan has an incredible selection of 36 artisanal tequilas and mezcals to make this Cinco de Mayo lively. I mean, this year of any year, we’ve earned it. Salud!
