Very rarely do I visit a place to eat that pisses me off enough to write a review complaining about it. This happens to be the first one. Read MoreHide
I often walk past this place without thinking much about it but one day I was craving Mexican food and decided to give it a try. I also searched for reviews on it on hungrygowhere first and everybody seem to like it.
Anyway, I got there with my boyfriend and we ordered 1 chicken/cheese quesadilla, and 1 fire grilled mahi mahi with crispy tacos. (the crispy tacos have to be topped up at 75 cents or something, which they state on the board but did not specify that the price was only for one taco, so you end up paying $1.50 if you do choose this. I would not have mind paying that if it did not suck). Both the taco and quesadilla cost roughly 15.90 each I think. We also ordered 2 cups of lime juices. Main courses come with a small bowl of corn chips with free flow salsa sauces ranging from mild to spicy.
The setting was basically very fast food restaurant like, where you go to the counter and order your own food. Except that at Baja, you end up paying roughly $43 for a below average meal for 2 to dine in a fast food setting.
My mahi mahi tacos, despite taking longer than my boyfriend's quesadilla to be served, were barely lukewarm and excess liquid from the fish were not drained before being put on top of my 1.50 crispy tacos which were now soggy. The parts that were not affected by the liquid was not crispy or fresh to begin with anyway, in case you were wondering. This dish came with a side of rice and beans.
The only redeeming thing about this meal was that my boyfriend's quesadilla were at least hot, but comparable to having mozerella cheese and chicken breast sandwiched between two instant roti pratas. This came with a side of sour cream, guacamole, and a salsa of tomatos and peppers.
All in all, I would NEVER recommend anyone to eat here. Considering how Singapore has no lack of amazing food and considering the amount you would spend eating here, you would be much better off trying some place else.
I spent $22 per person.
