Muy Caliente: A hot new Mexican concept, Te Quiero Mucho is a hip, modern eatery on Queen’s Road Central.

Look & Feel: Over two floors, bold interiors by local design firm Alt-254 artsy, rustic, and incorporate a sustainability ethos. Te Quiero Mucho features plenty of reclaimed wood, recycled wood set against graphic illustrations and bright neon installations.

On the Menu: Te Quiero Mucho specializes in authentic Mexican fare, naturally. All with a big dose of spice and rich flavors. Start with the guacamole laced with onion powder ($78) and homemade tortilla chips. Then reach for big-hitters like tuna al pastor upside-down tostadas with guava jalapeño chili sauce and roasted pineapple relish ($65), or barbecued chicken with carrot and banana puree ($228). There are tacos, of course (from $35), and to finish, churros with a decadent dulce de leche dip ($60). Mexican-inspired cocktails are the perfect foil for the food. The drinks list includes punchy cocktails like the las palms coloradas ($118), made with orange peel-infused tequila, Amaro Monenegro, homemade hibiscus syrup, yuzu, grapefruit juice and soda.

Meet the Chef: Chef Alfonso Alfonso Gonzales is a native of Guadalajara, and brings authentic Mexican recipes and techniques to this Hiong Kong venture.

FYI: Te Quiero Much is part of Mojo Nomad Central, a boutique micro hotel that lets travellers live, work and play in an exciting communal space that inspires collaborations.
