Mexican food has something a bit special about it. From the humble burrito to the sinful chimichanga, there's a variety and depth of flavour that just leaves us wanting more. And more. And more. Luckily enough, Mexican cuisine is booming in Singapore at the moment. We've rounded up some of the best Mexican restaurants in the country, so you know exactly who to call when the chimichanga craving starts kicking in:
Authentically Mexican, Mex Out does the simple things really, really well. The burritos are bursting with beans, the tacos are fabulously fresh and the churros (dipped in chocolate sauce, of course) are an epically indulgent way to end your meal. Need something to wash all this spicy goodness down? You're in luck, because Mex Out also sell Jarritos, a range of fruity Mexican soft drinks.
Baja Fresh are committed to bringing the best Mexican street food to Singapore. Spoiler alert: they've succeeded! The burritos are thick and juicy, the nachos are gooey and crisp and the fajitas come in pretty much any combination you can think of. The huevos ranchero burrito, a classic Mexican breakfast, is the perfect way to start the day, while the tostada salad is ideal for those seeking something a little lighter. Oh, and they also serve churros. Never forget about the churros.
Combining modern ideas with classic dishes, Senor Taco serves up some of the tastiest and most interesting Mexican food in Singapore. They were the very first Taqueria in Singapore, and have continued to bring their fresh take on Mexican street food to the masses since they opened back in 2009.
The generously-sized fish baja-style tacos put a Mexican spin on a tasty seafood favourite, while the 14-hour braised pork carnitas, served with a special sauce, is a meat-eater's dream! Room for more? There are plenty of side dishes to choose from, including prawn ceviche, chicken wings and nachos.
Build your own burrito at Muchachos, an American-style establishment offering big flavour and even bigger dishes. First select your format: burrito bowl or standard wrap. Then choose from pinto, black and refried beans. Verde, roja or habanero salsa? It's up to you. Finally, add in some sliced avocado or guacamole and you're good to go.
Full to the brim and succulent, there's nothing restrained about the food down at Muchachos. Quesadillas, tacos and salad bowls are also available, making Muchachos the place to go for a real Mexican feast!
Mouthful by delicious mouthful, you'll find yourself transported to the streets of Mexico City with the food at Café Mexicana. The whole gang's here! Start out with beef, lamb, vegetable or chicken nachos, choose between chimichangas, enchiladas, burritos and fajitas for your main, and the sweet treats are pretty good, too. Creative and cooked fresh to order, this is Mexican cuisine the way it's meant to be.
