Burritos and tacos are generally the first things that come to mind when someone mentions Mexican food (I know I do). However, Mexican cuisine is much more than that. Because of all the flavorful spices used in Mexican cuisine, each meal generally has an explosion of tastes. When I was going by a Mexican restaurant, the enticing aromas from within struck me like a ton of bricks! With Mexican food, it’s like having a party in your mouth.
Here are some Mexican eateries that you’ll definitely appreciate if you like rich tastes and full dishes:

Papi’s Tacos, one of Singapore’s most popular neighbourhood taquerias, transports you to the heart of Lion City’s authentic, hassle-free Mexican cuisine. You’re in for a treat if you’re a fan of tacos as much as we are. Papi’s Tacos serves a variety of tacos, including carnitas, pescados, and even a vegan version. The portions are very generous, and the atmosphere is lively as if you were in Mexico. Of course, no taqueria would be complete without a selection of high-quality tequilas and cool margaritas to accompany the delectable tacos. You can have a much-needed drink on a Monday midday because the restaurant is open every day of the week. Their opinions are unrestricted.

Mexican food does not end with tortilla-based meals, as much as they love tacos and nachos. They recommend El Mero Mero if you want a more refreshing take on Mexican cuisine. In most cases, they eat their Mexican food in a more relaxed setting, with live music and of course, a few cocktails on the side. The setting at El Mero Mero, on the other hand, is more sophisticated than typical, so expect a little more opulence in the meals. Don’t worry, the dishes are reasonably priced, so don’t hesitate to make a reservation as soon as possible!

They’ve all heard of Tex-Mex cuisine, but Vatos Urban Tacos’ Ko-Mex cuisine is something they’ve never heard of before. This restaurant introduces novel yet tasty concoctions like kimchi carnitas fries, galbi tacos, and spicy chicken quesadillas by combining the best of Mexican food with Korean ingredients. Order a mug (or two) of Vatos Urban’s special ice-cold draft beer to beat the heat. Both cuisines are known for their spicy flavour profiles. Vatos Urban now has three locations in Singapore, and everything on their menu is extremely delicious.

Cafe Iguana is the place to go if you want to eat delicious Mexican food with a stunning view of the Singapore River. Cafe Iguana, which opened in 2000, serves some of the best chilli con queso and nachos in town, but their chimichangas are our favourite. It’s also excellent since they provide a wide range of plant-based options, so you don’t have to eat meat to enjoy Mexican food. In addition, Cafe Iguana offers a wide range of Happy Hour cocktails to complement your meal. For example, try their premium tequila El Destilador. The choice is yours: on the rocks or in a cocktail of your choice.

Lucha Loco is the clear winner when it comes to ambience. This Mexican restaurant is essentially a bright and casual Mexican garden cocina with a bar, making it a great place to catch up with friends after a long time has passed. Don’t worry, you can go directly to the restaurant after taking a break from work because day drinking is very much accepted. Wait until it gets dark, though, because, with fairy lights draped all over the garden, the mood is even better at night.
The menu at Lucha Loco varies depending on the day and time of your visit, so make sure to check the menu before making a reservation. Otherwise, prepare to be taken aback. On Taco Tuesdays, Lucha Loco allows guests to create their own tacos using a homemade platter.

There’s nothing we don’t like about Margarita’s in Dempsey Hill more than the pleasant atmosphere, delicious food, and kind employees. This restaurant also offers up some really outstanding margaritas, as you might assume from the name. Anything from a Mexican Bulldog to a traditional lime margarita! Not to mention the cocktails that have been particularly curated for you, as well as a variety of delicacies produced with unique ingredients that you can try.
Because Margarita’s has been around since 1988, it’s a well-known place for casual eaters looking for a quick fix of Mexican food. The restaurant also has a cosy feel to it, which is enhanced by the presence of live music on occasion. You can eat your lunch while watching the world go by on the outdoor terrace if you don’t have somebody to sit with.

It’s unsurprising to find a Mexican restaurant in the heart of Singapore’s Little India, but Chimichanga proves that it’s in a league of its own. The most appealing aspect of this restaurant is the fact that every dish on the menu is reasonably priced. When it comes to Mexican comfort cuisine, they have it all, from tacos to burritos to dessert churros. For less than $10, you can get freshly shucked oysters at Chimichanga, and the restaurant’s trademark margaritas are also cheaply priced. They frequently have drink deals on Wednesdays, so make sure you plan your ladies’ night out ahead of time!

Cha Cha Cha is a Mexican restaurant in Singapore that has been around for 30 years and has a lot of experience. They’ve got all the delicious Mexican food you’d expect, as well as a few new twists on the classics. Dessert nachos, for example, are essentially deep-fried tortillas covered with chocolate and mango sauce at Cha Cha Cha. They have to admit that it is a very unique mix, but they all know that when it comes to flavours, Cha Cha Cha can make anything work. In case a single burrito roll isn’t enough to satisfy your hunger, they also provide burrito bowls.

Not only Mexican flavors are used in tacos, but you’ll also find a delightful mix of international flavors in tacos like the Koreana (S$10), which is spiced up with kimchi and ssamjang aioli, as well as the Sisig (S$8), which uses the Filipino-style Pork classic.
