Where we are, our perception of Mexican food is almost always confined to Nachos and Burritos.

It is time to put that belief aside.

Whether you’re craving Tacos, Fajitas, or indulgent Churros, Singapore has a variety of Mexican restaurants to satisfy every palate, from Cha Cha Cha, Huevos, Piedra Negra, Margarita’s, El Mero Mero, Lucha Loco, La Salsa, to El Cocinero.

Let’s check out 10 more Mexican restaurants in Singapore, each offering their spin on these classic, colourful dishes:

Nixta Mexican Grill & Bar
116 Amoy Street, Singapore 069936
Opening Hours: 12pm – 3pm, 5:30pm – 11pm (Mon – Wed), 12pm – 11:30pm (Thurs – Sat), 12pm – 11pm (Sun)

Created by the same chef that brought us Blue Label Pizza and Luke’s Oyster Bar, Amoy Street’s Nixta Mexican Grill & Bar pays respect to the enigmatic Mexican culture and cooking.

“Nixta”, short for Nixtamalisation, is a process where maize is prepared and hulled for consumption.

In Nixta, heirloom corn is nixtamalized and grounded in-house to create heirloom corn masa, which can be used as a base for quesadillas, tostadas and more.

The painstaking process culminates in dishes like the Tuna Tostada and the Butternut Squash, Kale & White Cheddar Enchiladas.

You will be surprised by the Tlayuda de la Casa, a tortilla topped with roasted corn, the epazote herb and quesco fresco cheese. The interplay of corn and cheese, tied together by the herb oil, was an unexpectedly good result to me.

For the whole table, share some Chips & Salsa ($12), Seafood Cocktail Veracruz ($32) or even Wood-Fired Oysters ($29) that are topped with charred jalapeno butter and tomato vinaigrette.

The Churros with Hay’s Milk Cajeta ($18) is a must-order dessert here, that offers a unique twist on the classic Spanish treat.

This dish pairs the traditional, crisp fried dough of churros with a rich and creamy dipping sauce made from Hay’s Milk Cajeta, which is a type of caramel sauce but crafted from a special type of milk known for its high quality and distinct flavour.

Papi’s Tacos delivers a cozy and vibrant dining experience that reflects the street dining culture of Central Mexico.

“Papi” is a colloquial term for “daddy” in Spanish. (But don’t anyhow call him daddy.)

The line-up of simple and unassuming Tacos are mouth-watering and honest. They are served on corn tortillas in sets of two, which may not be enough.

There are various Tacos options which come with marinated pork shoulder, grilled grass-fed Australian beef, marinated chicken, fried dory fish, grilled zucchini, to plant-based meat.

You can try the Al Pastor ($13) with taco filled with pull-apart marinated pork shoulder, and a tangy Guajillo sauce to accentuate the spices used for the pork.

It is based on shawarma spit-grilled meat and has been a crowd favourite. The pork is being marinated in special spices and skewed onto the spit-grill, then slow-grilled for hours.

Muchachos
182 Cecil Street, Frasers Tower #01-01, Singapore 069547
Opening Hours: 11am – 9pm (Mon – Fri), 10am – 3pm (Sat – Sun)

From a neon-lit shopfront on the corner of Frasers Tower, Muchachos serves simple feel-good Tex-Mex cuisine to hungry office workers.

The industrial interior of the restaurant is more fast-food like than anything else. Still, the food packs a punch above what the appearance suggests.

The menu is kept slim for ease of ordering. Pick your favourite filling from chicken, steak, pork, tongue, fish or vegetarian. Have it as a burrito, taco, or quesadilla, then add on any sides if you like.

The most interesting filling on offer is the Lengua (tongue), which you can have in a Taco to highlight its flavour. For those less acquainted with offals, the lengua itself has a good bite to it, although its taste only comes from the braising liquid used.

I had a safer pick, a Carne Asada Burrito. The strips of steak in the tortilla wrap were slightly chewy, but it was a great burrito overall.
