It’s hard to believe, but summer is almost here. Ring it in with these Latin favourites

Nothing screams summer quite like an icy margarita or a refreshing mojito. We’ve been dreaming about sunny beach days and long, tequila-infused nights all year long, and now they’re almost here. That means it’s time to start planning your summer menu, and we’ve got some suggestions. How about pan-fried quesadillas, tacos, and more cocktails than you can possibly count?

If that sounds good, read on to find three of the best Latin restaurants in Lan Kwai Fong. And if you’re a Mastercard member, we’ve got even better news. Lan Kwai Fong has teamed up with Mastercard x HSBC to bring select members exclusive deals and discounts. We’re talking Mastercard-only happy hours and freebies, plus seriously reduced bills.

Los Sotano

Tacos and tequila go together like, well, tacos and tequila. They’re a perfect pairing, and no one does them better than our favourite basement bar, Los Sotano. Chef Abel Ortiz, who came from Central restaurant in Peru (the fourth best restaurant in the world!), cooks up some seriously delicious “street tacos”. Some are classics that you know, like an Al Pastor with spit roasted pork shoulder and grilled pineapple, while others are more creative. Definitely check out the  Lobster Drunk on Tequila, which is exactly what it sounds like (Avion tequila marinated lobster) and guacamole. Use your Mastercard to get 15% off the total bill – so you can add a few more tacos to your night, guilt free.

Cali-Mex Bar & Grill

You can’t say you live in Hong Kong, if you’ve never had a Cali-Mex. These guys are the GOAT when it comes to fast, affordable and insanely craveable Californian-Mexican fusion. We’re talking humongous burritos, flavourful soft-shell tacos and moreish 12-inch Mexican-style tortillas. Whether you grab it for lunch or dinner, or even a day on a junk – use your Mastercard. They’re offering 15% off the entire bill, which only makes us want to order a few more things than we probably should. They do desserts and nachos too, you’re welcome.

Havana Bar

Summer in Hong Kong means beaches, junk boats and of course – cocktails. The most refreshing of which is the mojito. Bubbly, minty, sweet and a little sour – it’s the ultimate summer drink (and when served with fresh mint and a sugar cane, it’s also gorgeous). No one does them better than Havana Bar, in Lan Kwai Fong. And select Mastercard members can get exclusive discounts on them too. Just flash your card to score HK$500 off the “Bath Tub” party pack. It is basically a private happy hour for you and your friends, with unlimited drinks for three hours. You can also snag a generous HK$240 discount on their “King Mojito” – 2.5 liters of minty, mojito goodness. Be sure to share responsibly!

Some restrictions apply, find all the details here.
