Baja Fresh – Popular Mexican Chain Opens in Singapore

By Daniel, June 14, 2012

Mexican food is not exactly a big thing in Singapore. But fans of Mexican cuisine can now enjoy bold and fresh flavours from Baja Fresh which has opened its first Singapore branch at Rendezvous Hotel.

Founded in 1990, Baja Fresh has already established its name in the United States and Dubai with more than 250 restaurants in 28 states. It continues to serve Mexican favourites such as tacos, burritos, fajitas, quesadillas and nachos.

Singapore’s outlet has a fast-food restaurant vibe. What we like is that many items are customisable with healthier options, sizes and different fillings. On the flip side, first timers may get confused with its varied combinations.

For examples, it burrito alone can come with different versions of Mexicano, baja, ultimo or bare, with choice of fillings such as fire-grilled chicken, steak, shrimp, vegetables and mahi mahi fish, plus add-ons of guacamole or sour cream. Confused yet?

Lucky13 – Miami-style Diner Impresses with Sumptuous Latin American Food

By Daniel, May 30, 2012

Lucky 13 is a Miami-style diner, bar and club which just opened at TripleOne Somerset. Helmed by Chef Garfield Angove from the United States, the menu would include some of the sexy Latin American and Mexican signature cuisines which include Quesadilla, grilled achiote chicken, Mexican style grilled steak, pressed Cuban medianoche sandwich and Cajun style blackened fish tacos.

I highly recommend The Chef Platter ($32 nett) which has all the Lucky 13 favourites in all, suitable for sharing among 2-3 diners. The platter is quite value-for-money as it includes sautéed tiger prawns, quesadillas, tortilla chips, spicy mojo drumlets and potato croquestas topped with homemade fresh salsa.

The Cuban-style spicy mojo drumlets have left the deepest impression for me. They are incredibly delicious, bursting with flavours of sweet, salty and spiciness.

Opening hours: Daily: 11am-2.30pm, 5.30pm-11pm

Rascals Gone Dining? Don’t worry, this is not a children’s restaurant. Replacing Ms Clarity at Purvis Street, this Latino-Mexican restaurant is the latest addition to a street full of gastronomic eateries.

For their opening promotion, the Rascals have introduced a 3-course tasting menu for $35 that include enlivening choices like Caesar salad with chipotle chilli, king prawns in coconut cream sauce and ice cream with, em, strawberry salsa!

Do not leave the rascals without the rich chocolate cake ($6.90) added with read: ancho chili, and of course a cool glass of margarita which will make you go “Amigo!”

The Mexican – Mexican Food In a Food Court?

By Daniel, December 7, 2010

51 Bras Basah Road Kopitiam Food Court Plaza By The Park
Opening Hours: 24 Hours Daily

It is hard to find authentic Mexican food in Singapore, and I do not mean just nachos, burritos and tacos. Therefore imagine my surprise when I saw a Mexican food court stall, well-hidden within Kopitiam at Plaza By The Park.

The food served was inconsistent, but the Quesadillas ($8.50 for four) was the redeeming factor. The shell was crunchy, and the fillings more exciting with tender chicken, capsicum, onions and spices blending well with the chewy cheese.
