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. Recommended!
