Tasty, Hearty, Mid-Range Mexican Food

Full Baja Fresh Mexican Grill review here:

First established in 1990 in California, on the west coast of the United States Of America, Baja Fresh Mexican Grill, also known as Baja Fresh for short, is a fast casual / fast food restaurant, specialising in Tex-Mex / fusion Texan and Mexican food. Baja Fresh Mexican Grill is known for their use of fresh ingredients, and their self-serve salsa bar with a variety of freshly made salsa. While the American outlets have seen declining success in recent years, the Baja Fresh Mexican Grill in Singapore, which opened in May 2012, is still doing rather well.

Ambience at Baja Fresh Mexican Grill is simple, casual, and functional. There is minimal decor to speak off, but the bright colours of green, yellow, and white lend a cheery feel. Furniture is functional and bare, similar to other fast food franchises. I do feel that cleanliness level overall isn't that great, the places shows signs of age, and the lights are slightly dim. Seats are also somewhat limited.

Service at Baja Fresh Mexican Grill is largely self-service, with ordering and payment done over the counter, similar to other fast food outlets. However, as there is usually a short 5 - 10 minute wait for your orders, staff will serve it to your table. The menu is clear and legible, though the amount of customisable options is wide, and can therefore slow down the queue. While staff do make suggestions on what to order, they can be somewhat brusque.

Food at Baja Fresh Mexican Grill is classic Tex-Mex, known for its use of shredded cheese, beef / pork, and beans. Generally, I find the food to be tasty and well seasoned, balanced in the meals, though the meat is sometimes lacking in moisture. Portions are large, and very filling. Prices are comparable to a high-end bistro / restaurant, depite its casual ambience. Budget about SGD $25 per person for a meal here.

The Nachos (SGD $12.95) features a large basket of crisp tortilla chips, topped with tomato salsa, pinto beans, guacamole, sour cream, melted cheese, and chunks of chicken breast. Love the combination of flavours and textures, the fresh and sweet tomato salsa, the crunch of the salty tortilla chips, the savoury chicken, the smooth gucamole, and the tangy sour cream. Good enough to be a meal on its own!

Staff with bad attitude. I will not be back!

 We went in a group and bought the groupon deal. There was 2 queue at the cashier, 5 of us were told that we have to pay service charge, whereas half of us were not charged service charge. Upon comparing the recipe and the difference in prices, we realized that some of us ordered the same things but were not charged equally. Some people were charged no GST, and 5o cents for a drink, whereas others paid $5 more.
 We were went to ask for clarification from the counter, they insisted that there is service charge, however this is not mentioned on the groupon at all. Second, he said 'if you are not happy i will charge your other friends' and walked away . Hello. I mean you are the staff, we are the customer and this is how we talk to us. What kind of attitude is this. How impolite is that.
 The food was ok, the fajitas were good but the burritos was too sour and the 'steak' was thin beef slices. The rice was too dry. urgh.
 I love mexican food but I am never going there.

Enjoy Good Mexican Food @ Pocket-Friendly Prices!

I have this continuous craving for a Mexican Burrito for the past week.


This is my go-to place, as its centrally located at Dhoby Ghaut, and the food come quick when you need food to go.


I rounded up several friends and we came to Baja Fresh for dinner recently.


Each of us ordered what we liked and we shared amongst our dining group.


Here are the highlights:

- Baja Bowl with Chicken: $10.95. Actually served in a plate, with rice, beans, grilled vegetables, onion, cilantro, cut chicken cubes and drizzled with salsa. Reminded me of a cross between a pizza and Chinese rice. The salsa topping is mildly spicy. Its nice and I will order this again.


- Burrito Mexicano with Pork Carnitas: $11.95. This was what I had come for. The burrito was chockfull of ingredients: rice, beans, salsa, chopped onions, cilantro and pork carnitas. Shredded cheese was sprinkled over the burrito and toasted then laden with a brown mildly spicy sauce. Definitely good to share, cos the portion is quite big and sharing with someone else means you can eat other stuff!


- Tacos Baja style with Mahi Mahi: $12.95. This was corn tortilla filled with salsa, chopped onions and cilantro with fish. Sour cream was served on the side. The ladies in my group liked the healthy dining feel for this dish.


- Quesadillas with Pork Carnitas: $11.95. We ordered the regular sized quesadilla. The tortilla was filled with Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream and pulled pork. It’s pre-cut into 4 slices, so its like eating an appetiser. All of us loved this and it’s a must-order!


- Quesadillas with Shrimp: $12.95. We couldn’t get enough of the pork quesadilla and ordered ordered another quesadilla with prawn instead. The prawns were grilled. I personally preferred the pork version better.


- Chicken Tortilla Soup: $5.95. The soup looks like tomato soup with slices of avocado and cheese at the bottom. Its tasty and not spicy, despite the staff informing that its spicy. Tasty and a good order for days when you need something soupy to warm your tummy. Try it!


- Dessert - Churros: $4.50. Freshly made, and its served nice and hot. Its coated with fine cinnamon powder and sugar. You can eat it on its own, or order chocolate sauce to dip the churros in for that chocolate-ty flavour! Must-try!


For drinks, they have a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages: Margaritas (Lime/ Blue), Sangria, a range of beers (Corona, Asahi, Tiger, Erdinger, Hoegaarden and Somersby Apple Cider) in addition to the usual Juices, soft drinks and hot beverages.


I had the Corona Beer, Blue Magarita and Lime Magarita. The blue margarita was special cos of the blue color and the ladies in my dining group loved it. I liked the lime margarita.


Overall, a great place to . Price-wise, its not expensive, compared to a sit-down restaurant. Good value-for-money.




Good Mexican Set lunch for $10!

I had a craving for a Burrito last Friday and the craving just didn’t go away. I managed to convince my colleagues to make the trip to Baja Fresh which is located at Grand Rendezvous Hotel, at Dhoby Ghaut.

They have set lunches available for $10, and you have a choice of 6 sets to choose from.

We decided on 3 different sets so we could try a variety of dishes:

- Burritto Mexicano: Baja rice, black pinto beans, mild salsa, fresh onions and cilantro wrapped in a flour tortilla with chicken. Loved it. The rice is tasty and helped fill my tummy.

- Quesadilla: Warm grilled flour tortilla filled with jack cheese and chicken. Served with fresh guacamole, fresh pico de gallo and sour cream. Tortilla folded in half and grilled. Like eating a pizza. The guacamole and sour cream were also good and went well with the quesadilla.

- Taco: 2 small flour tortilla filled with chicken, salsa and cheese. Its served ‘open-faced’ so you need to hold it up and eat it. Careful, the fillings may fall out on the opposite side when you eat it.

All the above orders came with a small bowl of tortilla chips which you can eat by itself, or pick your favourite salsa from salsa bar counter. There are 2 types of hot salsa and the milder Pico De Gallo (which is chopped up tomatoes and onions in a mildly spicy tomato juice.

Soft drinks are at $2.60, which you can help yourself from the drinks dispenser. They also have margheritas and beer to go with your meal.

If you are craving for taco to go, this is the place to go.

Try it!


Fresh and delicious Maxican food!

Baja Fresh is a US based Mexican grill food chain and has been serving Mexican grill food for decades. We are thankful we got the chance to experience both the Baja Fresh home-delivery and on-site tasting treat.

Spicy Chicken Americano Tacos ($5.95 onwards)
Tacos is a traditional Mexican food, made of a corn or wheat tortilla filled with various proteins, vegetables and cheese, usually go with guacamole, salsa. Another interesting wrap but eat without wrapping the tortilla.

Pork Quesadillas ($12.95 onwards)
A quesadilla is a flour tortilla or a corn tortilla filled with cheese and/or vegetables. Don’t let its plain look deceive you; this is easily one of the tastiest dishes we’ve had in a while. The grilled flour tortilla was held together with Monterey Jack Cheese and slow cooked American style pulled Pork Carnitas. The pork was exceptionally tender and seasoned it formed the perfect blend with the cheese – each bite was fireworks in the mouth! It’s served with sour cream, guacamole and pico de gallo but we guarantee the sauces are just an extra bonus and really not needed.

Tostada Salad ($12.95 onwards)
One thing we love about Baja Fresh is that they really live up to their name in terms of the freshness of the foods and it really shows through the salad. The greens were fresh, and paired with beans, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, salsa and some prawns! The crispy tortilla shell gave the whole dish an extra kick too, perfect for those looking for a light and guilt-free meal!

While Quesadilla was well loved by all, the Tostada Salad, Burritos and the Tacos were equally enticing!
