Directions to Café Iguana
This Tex-Mex restaurant has a phenomenal setting, atop the shopping centre Elements right on the courtyard. They have a patio with fully outdoor seating, as well as indoors, which in itself is semi-al fresco as the restaurant opens on one side to the courtyard.
The courtyard is lovely, with waving palms, music from neighbouring restaurants, and surrounded by towering skyscrapers, giving it that chic, urban feel with a touch of Miami.
The décor is typically brightly coloured Mexican, with a cactus mural, cushy, spacious booths, and sombreros to round it off.
The service is prompt, while not being too in-your-face, although they lack somewhat in professionalism.
The food can be very hit or miss, so it is important to order what’s good! The best Tex-Mex specialties are the giant multi-coloured pile of Nachos (HK$88), topped with Asadero cheese, guacamole, corn, salsa, sour cream and jalapeños, which are enough for several people to split. The Quesadillas are classic and fresh, bursting with flavour and tender meat, and the sizzling Steak Fajitas are artfully presented semi-bento style, with four mini bowls of guacamole, sour cream, salsa, and black beans surrounding the steak, with three flour tortillas in a drawer that you can pull out.
They also have a full bar, with a large selection of tequila. Try the chilli-infused tequila (comes with a chaser) for a blast of heat for your palate!
Avoid the ‘house’ margaritas, as they are made with very cheap, nose-crinkling tequila whose taste cannot be masked.
Expect to spend HK$150 – $200 per person for dinner.
