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!
