Being in US for a few months, I have grown to love Mexican food. Many might find the taste of black beans unacceptable, I found it irresistible.

When people told me about Chipotle, I thought they were over the top about it. I thought, 'How could a chain restaurant be nice anyway?'. The answer is clear if you ever had Chiptole. There are for sure places in US that offer better Mexican food, but I just couldn't find one in Hong Kong yet.

Coming back to HK, I went to iCaramba again to refresh my memory as I once thought it is really good. As usual we came here on a Monday Night, once a restaurant is listed on Super Monday list, you wouldn't want to come here on another day.

Caramba Nachos $105 (8/10)
We used our saved cost on some nice Sangria and yummy nachos. The Nachos was in generous portion, cheese, tomato and gua were all over the plate. Several nachos were soggy due to the toppings, but they were generally great nachos. (There can't be very bad nachos right?)

I was thinking about Burrito for my main but my friends said I am boring, so I picked Chimichanga which is a deep fried version of Burrito! tongue

Chicken Chimichanga $102 (7/10)
My Chicken Chimichanga was presented exactly like the Burrito but with crispier skin. I agree to certain extend that Mexican dishes taste pretty much the same, I reckon the distinguishing factor lies on how a restaurant seasons their food. The Chimichanga tasted nothing special and the black beans seemed a bit too wet. Well I guess it's a good dish if you haven't ever tried Chipotle's lime cilantro rice and delicious black beans!

Caramba Mexican Flan $55 (9/10)
I had never had Flan before, so I was eager to try it. Flan is a traditional caramel custard which iCaramba added a hint of cointreau on it. The cute little thing looked like a pudding but tasted like caramel egg tart! The texture kind of surprised me, and I like it very much!

Even the food is just okay I would recommend iCaramba simply because of their ambiance and large range of spicy sauces available. From easy Tabasco to crazy spicy sauces with interesting name like 'Hottest Fuckin Sauce' or 'Hot as Shit Hot Sauce', you just can't resist but try them! Warning: They do taste as hot as their names!!!!

Food Craver I think I have Coyote before...actually i am not quite sure there are two mexician resto along the street, i went there at lunch once and forgot which one I went sad I couldn't really compare as I have only had lunch in the Wanchai Mexican restaurant and only Dinner at iCaramba. However memory-wise, iCaramba is much nicer. Do you have Supermonday card? you are an expat right...should have heard of that. Ever used it before? Spare a monday and go visit the place smile

supersupergirl Coyote!

I cant remember if I posted any pictures of the black beans.
But I havent tried this shop yet, so I don't know if this tastes better or Coyote.

I really want to try their week day buffet though cos I heard they have refried beans which I like as well.
