Set Lunch at Coyote Bar and Grill

The bars and bristols situated harmoniously in Wanchai among the residential and commercial buildings.  I live in this area and today I have a day off, so I decided to hop into one of these bars for a lunch.  In fact these bars are full of people at night time for football shows but in day time, they are just like any other ordinary restaurant offering set lunches for the white collars.

As far as I notice, their menus rotate almost everyday.  Yesterday I saw Cotoye had a paella set which I wanted to try, but today they switch to another menu.  Anyway, with the money I pay, I'm happy with the food, the setting, services and price.  The set lunches in these bars are generally HK$100-150, while some may charge cheaper and even without service charge.

Coyote is famous for its Mexican food and tequilla drinks.  But they also offer set lunches during day time.  Here's my 3-course lunch (HK$118 +10% service charge, totaling HK$129).

For the starter, I can choose between salad and soup.  Today I prefer the cesar salad to carrot soup. As for main course, there are up to 8 or 9 options, and each customer is offered a mini chocolate mousse with coffee/tea.  The portion is just right. 

Cesar Salad
very fresh vegetables!

Prawns Linguine Pasta 
Giant prawns with very yummy (slightly spicy) gravy.  Well done!

Chocolate Mousse served with Coffee or Tea
This mini dessert is just perfect to wrap up my meal, it's not too big not too sweet, and nicely presented.

The waitresses are friendly and I personally like the high leg bar chairs.  Nice lunch.  Ooops, I forgot to mention one thing, if you find other restaurants are full, these bars are good options, as they are seldom full house except at night time.  One reason for this is may be because they are very western in style and taste, so they are less preferable to the locals.
