  • Barrio By Mex Out
    1 / 7 Barrio By Mex Out

    This Mexican gem right smack in town, Barrio By Mex Out is exactly what it claims to be – a social, energetic casual dining spot with the vibes of a beer garden.

    Order the Mexican Street Corn to start – a char-grilled corn cob coated with butter, mayo, paprika, cotija cheese, coriander and oregano. The mains, from quesadillas to tacos and more, are yummy too.

    Burgers are given a Mexican twist – delightfully sloppy and saucy.

  • Guzman y Gomez
    2 / 7 Guzman y Gomez

    We’re glad this popular Mexican chain in Australia made its way to Singapore. Guzman y Gomez‘s signature burritos are huge, but we’d willingly surrender ourselves to a looming food coma for this.

    Another plus point: choose between different fillings for single orders of tacos so you get to try out a little bit of everything (then go back from more!).

  • El Mero Mero
    3 / 7 El Mero Mero

    El Mero Mero is Mexican slang for “the go-to guy”, and true to its name, this restaurant is fit to be your main man for all things Mexican.

    Contemporary creations include the San Remo Prawn Ceviche with sea urchin, mango, and chilli, Kurobuta Al Pastor Tacos, and even Mexican-inspired desserts like Tequila Pecan Pie.

  • Cha Cha Cha
    4 / 7 Cha Cha Cha

    Cha Cha Cha is one of Singapore’s oldest Mexican restaurants – and surely that says something about their food.

    If you think burritos are the best Mexican invention ever, wait till you try the DEEP FRIED burritos.

    Other favourites: the selection of seafood tacos, as well as the Culaican, cheese-stuff king prawn wrapped in bacon with Mexican rice and sour cream.

  • Muchachos
    5 / 7 Muchachos

    With all the pleasant vibes of a hipster Mexican dive bar burrito joint, watch the folks at Muchachos in action as they prepare your meal at the kitchen counter to whet your appetite.

    The menu is simple yet more than sufficient. Our favourite: the Pescado Burrito, which has whitefish fillet battered and deep-fried Baja style.

  • Lower East Side Tacqueria
    6 / 7 Lower East Side Tacqueria

    Lower East Side Tacqueria looks two parts quirky and one part cutesy – think pattern-tiled floors, wooden chair hanging from the ceiling – but the food here is quite another force to be reckoned with.

    Try the Cuello de Pollo, deep-fried chicken necks with a pinch of lime salt, or rise up to the Habenero Heat Intensity Challenge and have your food on the house if you manage to survive the spicy bad boys within the time limit.

  • Lucha Loco
    7 / 7 Lucha Loco

    We love the vibes of this dynamic Mexican garden bar – its like fiesta – but not quite as much as we love the food.

    Even Lucha Loco‘s meat-free tacos pack a punch – the Taco de Hongoa features a mix of wild mushrooms, baked ricotta, and pine nuts encased in a taco shell. Wash your meal down with a playful Mexican cocktail.
