Havana Bar and Grill, located on Elgin Street in the heart of Soho, recreates the mambo-dancing, cocktail-sipping untroubled days of Cuba and the Caribbean. As part of our Caribbean cooking series, Havana will take inspiration from the spice-garden island of Jamaica.

“Jerk” is a traditional Jamaican way seasoning grilled foods with various spices and the Jamaicans have perfected the art of “Jerking”.  The spices that are used in Jerk are; chili pepper, allspice, thyme, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. These spices, along with garlic and onions are used to marinate the meat or fish for an exact period of time. When the marinade has added just the right flavor, the meat or fish is then cooked on a smoking grill. This is where the BIG Jerk flavors explode in a taste experience that can only be described as sensational.

During the entire month of April, you can visit Havana and experience our “BIG Jerk” promotion, where you will find five wonderfully prepared Jamaican Jerked dishes that represent the art of Jerk.

Jerk Swordfish with Pineapple and Red Onion

With crisp mange tout in chipolte butter  ($175)

Jerk pork tenderloin with Pumpkin farce

Served with sweet potatoes mash and sautéed vegetables ($165)

Jerk Lamb Rack with Mango Rum Sauce

Served with grilled yams and pumpkin and chayote mash ($165)

Jerk Shrimp and Scallop Kebabs

Served with Caribbean rice and tropical fruit salsa ($145)

To complement these wonderful dishes, Havana will also showcase a selection of Carribean cocktails - Captain’s Siren Island, Spice Martini, Jamaican Me Crazy and Cape Sunrise.  Of course the Havana Mojito is always the most popular.

Havana is located at 35 Elgin Street, Soho, Central, Hong Kong.

COYOTE bar & grill ® in Wanchai today announced the launch of the new Left Handed SIGNATURE MARGARITA®, which will become available on 1st of April. Hong Kong's most preferred premium margarita will feature the trademark squeeze of fresh lime and lemon, big shot of Jose Cuervo Tequila and a dose of triple sec liquor, but the newly designed cocktail has been re-engineered to fit more comfortably in the left hand, thereby reducing "spills" for left-handed margarita lovers. It is estimated that more than 875 left-handed customers visit COYOTE bar & grill ® each day.

The new left-handed SIGNATURE MARGARITA® will have the salt rotated 180 degrees, thereby redistributing the weight of the cocktail so that the bulk of the ingredients will skew to the left, thereby reducing the amount of ice and other ingredients from spilling out the right side of the drink.

"We have always been proud of the fact that we offered 75 different variations of our SIGNATURE MARGARITA®. Now it’s 76 ways. It's the ultimate Mexican indulgence for our left-handed customers," said Gareth Moore, General Manager for COYOTE bar & grill ®

It is estimated that approximately 13 percent of the Hong Kong population (or 845 thousand people) is left-handed, making this consumer group one of the largest--and one of the most over-looked--minority segments in the city.

The new left handed SIGNATURE MARGARITA® will be launched in a half-page ad in HK Magazine, March 31 edition. Initially, the Left-Handed SIGNATURE MARGARITA® will only be available in COYOTE bar & grill ®, however, the company is considering plans to roll it out in it’s sister Mexican restaurant in SoHo, Caramba, located on Elgin Street.

COYOTE bar & grill ® is Hong Kong’s premier Mexican restaurant and first true Margarita bar and is a well known party destination. Classic Mexican dishes alongside the more adventurous and ultra-hip Southwest US Cuisine has established Coyote as a true destination restaurant.
