As a foodie I always fancied myself as an adventurous eater. The more exotic the food, the better. Mexican food is one of those I considered as adventurous… not that the food is strange, but a proper Mexican joint is quite rare in Hong Kong. My experience with Mexican food in this city has been mediocre at best.
Taco Chaca changed that.
It was a proper no-frills taqueria located at Sai Ying Pun. There is something about seeing all those fresh ingredient displayed in front of you, with the chef in action on the grills at the back. The whole set up of Taco Chaca really brought to mind the street vendors of Mexico.
Not that I have been to Mexico, but when your food is served in paper plate and plastic cup, on metal tables in cramped space, one has to justify the reasonable prices, doesn’t one?
