Walk past bar after bar brimming with foreigners, red light district type shops, and a number of excellent restaurants to arrive at Coyote, a loud, music-filled, dark and festive Mexican restaurant. The Mexican cantina boasts the first table-side guacamole in Hong Kong, their own housemade hot sauces (which you can buy to take home with you), and local beers on tap.
Service was efficient and friendly. On tap beer was good (Hong Kong Beer pale ale). Coyote Nachos (pulled chicken and chorizo) was generous, piled high with two types of beans, cheese, pickled japapenos, guacamole, pico di gallo. It was a bit on the salty side, but overall pretty good.
Baja fish tacos were surprisingly decent, with tender fish and overall pleasant. Not the best we’ve had (not as good as 11 Westside), but it’ll do in a pinch.
Beef tacos did not use the highest quality beef, so the meat was a bit tough.
Fajitas were average. Salmon was tender and meat was fine, but just didn’t stand out.
Music is loud and people were loud at times (a woman screamed a high pitch squeal three times during the evening). It was slightly annoying, but the loud music also took away awkwardness from a meal when people didn’t speak that much.
