TQM serves inspirational Mexican food with an energetic atmosphere and playful delivery. We’re an authentic Mexican restaurant & artisanal tequila bar with the best guac in Hong Kong!

Chef Alejandro’s unique knowledge has developed through working in kitchens across the world. Whilst perfecting his passion, he has gathered experience in Latin America, Europe, and Asia.
Alejandro’s interest in cooking began in his hometown in Mexico and quickly became his lifelong love. Five years studying gastronomy led him to move to Spain to work in Michelin-starred restaurants, including the heavily acclaimed El Bulli. Choosing to return to Mexico, he lived in the mountains and grew his own seasonal produce, fully appreciating the entire process of creating delicious Mexican food. During this time, he won the National Competition in Culinary Arts Copa Thierry Bluet and gained a diploma from the French Culinary Academy.
In 2015 he decided to take the plunge and move to Hong Kong. Like many of us, he fell in love with the bustling city and its refreshing takes on food. He hasn’t looked back since, creating unique menus in top restaurants, partaking in the organisational committee for the Festival of Taste of Hong Kong.
Fast forward to 2021, Alejandro has joined the Ovolo team and is adding his own authentic touch to TQM’s signature dishes. Fusing his love for his country’s food with his diverse experience, his vibrant flavours are already making waves at TQM.
Zingy signature cocktails, Mexican classics and refreshing Aguas Frescas all feature on TQM’s extensive drinks list. The impressive selection of Mexican beers, artisanal tequilas and mezcal ensures there’s always a party at this cantina! Our margaritas come for singles and groups, to make your night a little bit more sweeter.
One of the best Mexican restaurants in Central Hong Kong, TQM boasts bold interiors from local design house ALT 254. The eatery is punctuated with painstakingly sourced, reclaimed wood and recycled bricks, creating a rustic vibe juxtaposed with vintage illustrations and art and eye-catching neon installations that pay homage to the local area once known for its iconic hand-formed vintage signing. Playful patterns and bold colour in the lofty space ensure an authentic experience far beyond the plate. TQM’s first floor is available as a private events space.
The TQM kitchen puts out well-sourced, modern Mexican food that combines innovation and authenticity. TQM’s lively bar boasts an impressive selection of 36 artisanal tequilas and mezcals, including boutique pours and beloved classics – the best spot in Hong Kong town for a night out with friends.
