Socialito Hong Kong

Yesterday I went to Socialito Taqueria for a quick lunch on my quest for tasty mexican food in Hong Kong. For lunch I decided on the Pork Belly Tacos $80, and the Tuna Tostaditas $90.  The tuna tostaditas with avocado oil, grilled pineapple, picked jalapeno, spicy coconut aioli and cilantro were quite unique the flavours were a combination of Mexican and Thai together. I really enjoyed them they were light, the crackers crispy, the tuna fresh and the fruity smoky flavour of the grilled pineapple was really nice...
Next I had the pork belly tacos with guajillo sauce, salsa roja, queso fresco, onion and cilantro, I enjoyed the flavour but the pork belly was extremely fatty, I understand pork belly is a fatty cut of meat, but some of the pieces were solid fat with no meat on them. There are a few other dishes (salmon belly ceviche, cochinita pibil) I would have liked to try on the menu but thats all I had space for at lunch, maybe next time.  Overall I enjoyed the tuna way more then the tacos and I think the food was a bit expensive then it should have been but we can blame that on the rent in hk :)  But I still might be back to try a little more of the menu. xx
