This is Mexican street food set within a garden off Duxton Hill. Their menu inspired by a visit to Mexico is sublime. Try their mango and snapper ceviche, the Flautas de Pollo y Maiz, and the Taco de Chorizo Con Res, quite simply a gastronomic delight.

Centrally located in the CBD, this is a great after work date night spot. This is back to basics Mexican where you choose your base, pick a filling, and then top it off with a spicy salsa. Grab a jug of Sangria or Margaritas to top it all off before heading home to the family.

Unpretentious, everyday Mexican comfort food, is what Señor Taco does best. Señor Taco’s original Taqueria menu features tacos, quesadillas, botanas, and specialties from the different regions of Mexico.

Probably the only authentic Mexican in Singapore where they can claim their chef is 100% Mexican. The drinks menu includes more than a dozen kinds of 100% Agave tequila and reasonably priced Jose Cuervo shooters. For the ladies they have a delicious, smoothie-style blackberry margarita. Great little place for date night off Orchard Road.

Mexican with north Indian? Slightly strange but it works. If Dad needs some down time head here and watch a game, and chill out. Or bring the family. They have great service, friendly staff and a fun filled atmosphere. Try the Kashmiri Pulao or a burrito with a Greek salad. Mama might just need the mango margarita, delicious!
