Mr. K is Mexican and we prefer casa latina, especially for the tamales, sopa poblano, carnitas and red mole. Everything else is decent, but these are particularly good. If you want a taco fix, try señor taco at Clarke quay. Their tacos al pastor are quite good!

Seems to be the same for any "Western" Cuisine in Singapore, even the best of the best Fish and Chips is not like back in UK (still good though ;) )

Iguana is nice place, I like it, never been to Mexico though, so not sure if it represents there, but it's kinda like food in the UK :P

Mexican in SG

Postby lisalisadc » Thu, 20 Oct 2011 10:24 pm

For the budget minded, the Mexican stall in the Kopitam/Food Center in Brash Basah.

Piedra Negra is not bad.

There's a kiosk inside the Kallang/Stadium mall selling salsa, chips, and beans. I do not, however, recommend their chips because they are stale and $6 for a snack size.

Hasta luego.

Hi guys!

Does anyone know what happened to the Mexican stall in the Kopitiam in Bras Basah? I went there last month and it was closed / empty. :(

It wasn't very good, and anyway it's spitting distance from Casa Latina.

Oh I don't know about El Patio..went there late last year and the fajitas were a disappointment. Cafe Iguana I haven't tried yet, but Senor Taco, surprisingly, serves decent-you guessed it-Tacos. Nowhere near authentic, but definitely worth a second visit.

Mexican food here is expensive, and pretty much on a hit/miss level.so inasmuch as I would love to go on a quest for the best fajitas, and guac I'm afraid my wallet can't take the beating.

Worth pointing out: there's a Latin grocer that recently opened up a shop at Holland Village. If you like to cook your own food you can visit http://www.belmontemex.com/

How about Muchos at Clarke Quay? I'm really not so sure if this is an authentic Mexican restaurant but I enjoy eating here.

you can check out Viva Mexico at Cuppage Terrace: http://www.hungrygowhere.com/singapore/viva_mexico/

I havent tried many dishes but it is the only place i have found cerviche.

there is another place called Baja Fresh at Hotel Rendezvous that sells fast food tacos but it isn't that good i feel. but that's just my opinion.

I really liked the taco plate at Cafe Iguana, but it was hardly authentic (based on California Mexican I'm used, which the Mexicans around insist is pretty close). Also, that Taco plate of four tacos was S$27 or so. Same thing in California would be about US $5.

Is this the same Baja Fresh chain from the US that is a poor clone of Chipotle? It's pretty bad in the US, can't imagine how it is in Singapore (or how pricey)...
