An offshoot of the BluJaz Café, which occupies an adjacent corner in the same neighbourhood, Piedra Negra is a Mexican restaurant that takes up two units of adjoining shop house space at the sleepier end of the hip Arab Street enclave.
Great place to wind down after a day's work. Had the above with chips, vegetarian quesadilla and a cappucino. The bar above was blocked for entry which was a letdown as I was previously there for a wedding reception and enjoyed my visit.
The location and interior was a fun one. But other than the fact that my friend's shrimp tacos came with starfruit slices, the food was disappointing. The shredded beef was my enchiladas only saving grace which was encased by a spongy, soggy tortilla wrap like it's been sitting on the kitchen counter for ages. Also, there wasn't anything else in the enchiladas. No onions, no bell peppers or iceberg lettuce, not even sour cream on the top. The spicy habanero salsa (if that was the stuff drowning the enchiladas) didn't taste fresh but instead had a muddy, murky taste to it. And yes, I created an account just to make a review of the dish that had a chefs recommendation hat next to its name on the menu.
Piedra Negra used to have interesting Southern Mexican food, now mostly off the menu. What's left is mostly mediocre and utterly unseasoned food. I had the fish and shrimp taco and my wife had the deep fried shrimp tortilla. The only flavour on either came from the habanero sauces we added. The fish used in the tacos wasn't fresh, though I must admit that the shrimp used in both dishes was fresh and crunchy. A disappointing dinner all in all. I'm really not sure why this place is so packed. The beer prices can't be *that* great.
Worst mexican in Singapore..mediocre food, watered down cocktails and rude/unprofessional service. Music is either too loud so you cannot hear your friends or so low you cannot hear the music. Better pay a bit more and enjoy Viva Mexico at somerset or Lucha Loco at Duxton.
The waitress refused to give me a table below the fan because we were a party of 2 but then allowed two other people to sit there. When I challenged her about that she dismissed me saying she is busy. When I insisted I was there first she went over and she told these people that they need to move because "This guys wants THIS table" while pointing at me. Instead of saying I was there first she almost got me into a fight. On top of that she gave me the "are you happy now look".
The whole night was marked by awful rude service alongside mediocre food and drinks.
Stay away! waste of money and time
