Cafe Iguana @ Elements (Revisted)

After our Happy Hour session at SOHO No. 8, we headed over to Elements for some Mexican food because my friend who worked late wanted some Fajitas and what a great idea it was! Chili infused Tequila, here I come!! Compared with the last time I was here about a few weeks ago (First Visit), tonight the place was fully packed! I guess they did some very successful promotion. Fortunately, we did not have to wait long and we got the bench seat as well.

(1) Nachos
Lovely dish indeed! Not only does it look nice, it tasted very good. It was surprisingly good actually especially with the addition of corns. That is not a common ingredient you find ion Nachos (at least from my experiences) but the sweetness of it added a very good and refreshing flavors to it. Wonderfully prepared.

(2) Quesadillas
Another wonderful dish. The diced chicken tasted less dry than many other places so I asked the staff. Apparently chicken thighs were were instead of breast so the diced chicken remained relatively tender and juicy even after being grilled. The supply for various condiments was a nice touch too.

(3) Fajitas (steak)
We ordered this last time as well and we loved it. This time though, the sliced steak seemed smaller and a bit overcooked compared to last time. Actually there was more onions this time. Humm ... Anyhow, we enjoyed it and had to order more tortillas.

(4) Chili Infused Tequila
How can I come here without having this Chili Infused Tequila. This time it was served in a special rack with both the tequilas and the chaser. Try to drink down the tequila first and wait for a while before going for the chaser to allow the chili flavors to come out and rest in your mouth & throats. It was a great sensation indeed.

  • Nachos - especially the addition of corns
  • Quesadillas - the use of chicken thighs is a good idea
  • Fajitas (steak) - still good but slightly disappointing compare with last time
  • Lack of air conditioning once again.
Avg Spending: HKD 200 - 300 per person
