South of the Border: There’s no cuisine that Black Sheep Restaurants hasn’t touched, it seems — and now they’re adding to their Japanese, Sri Lankan, Greek, and Lebanese restaurants with modern Mexican eatery Taqueria Super Macho.

Look & Feel: Located on oh-so-hip Bridges Street in Sheung Wan, Taqueria Super Macho is inspired by the street-side taco shacks that dot the Mexican coast – particularly Baja and Oaxaca – so expect a casual vibe infused with Black Sheep Restaurants’ signature energy and conviviality. The space is pretty bare-bones – think cement walls and a few bright neon signs – but it fits the bill of a low-key, fun-loving taqueria.

On the Menu: There are tacos, of course, with innovative offerings like chilli-roasted pumpkin ($32) alongside more perenially popular offerings like Baja-style crispy fish ($32), al pastor ($42). Occasionally, there’s a limited-edition taco – we loved the hard-shelled crab version we tried. Don’t overlook the sharing plates, either from ceviche (super fresh) to tostadas (decadent and messy) by way of grilled Mexican street corn and quesadillas. There’s a great selection of tequila-based drinks – margaritas are a given – alongside some Mexican beers, but we’re all about the easy-sipping Paloma.

Jeng: Comfort food and punchy drinks served in cozy surrounds? Sounds like a fun night out.

Not so Jeng: It does feel a little rough around the edges, which is surprising for a Black Sheep Restaurants eatery – but then again, that’s exactly the point.

Great For: Big groups. All the better to share Super Macho’s multitude of starters and snacks.

FYI: Rather than loading up its tacos with sauces and toppings, Super Macho serves up its tacos with a heaping of vegetables, salsas and sauces on the side so that diners can craft their own taco concoctions. How’s that for a personal touch?
