Mexican Dining

I stumped upon this place thru buying the coupon offered online. The coupon was applicable for a 3-Course tasting menu that includes exciting options like Meat Balls for starters, Beef Stew for main course and Ancho chilli chocolate cake. It also includes a free margarita too.

The owner of the restaurant were very helpful and friendly which adds up to the good dining experience we had for the night.

I'll be back again for the Ancho Chilli Chocolate Cake which was indeed very good.

Once is more than enough!

If you are looking for authentic mexican food, this is definitely not the place for you. My husband and I decided to try out the restaurant after reading pretty good reviews in 8 days. We went there on a Saturday night, around 7+pm and only 2 tables were occupied at the time (2 more tables were filled subsequently). Definitely not a good sign. We ordered the tasting menu, which was value for money, since it came with three courses and a margarita. I had the chili nogada, Comarones con Diablo, ice-cream with strawberry salsa. The husband had crab gazpacho, Carne con chile Colorado, and Ancho chili chocolate cake. The only saving grace of this restaurant is the chili nogada. The comarones con diablo (prawns cooked with chipotle, chillis and coconut cream, served with angel hair) tasted only of coconut cream, totally un-mexican. The carne con chile tasted like beef rendang, very very different from the ones we are used at other mexican restaurants. The ice cream with strawberry salsa was the worst. Try pairing ice cream with onions, cilantro, garlic and tomatoes and tell me if you enjoyed it.

Not only was the food unpalatable, the service left much to be desired as well. The waitress was rather deaf (maybe the music was too loud) and we had to repeat our orders a few times. She kept on going, "Sorry?Sorry?" It got pretty annoying after a while. Considering that there were only 2 tables occupied at the time, it was totally unacceptable that we had to wait 15-20 mins just to be served our margaritas. The hub was getting pretty murderous by the time our drinks arrived. The food took way too long to arrive as well.

The ambience was fine. Pretty good for chilling out. You wouldn't think it was a mexican restaurant at all, given its minimalist decor.

In sum, I will not return to this restaurant, given its bad food and service.

valentines day

absolutely loved my dining experience in this quaint mexican retaurant. it was well furbished, good music in the background (not blaring, not too soft), candle lit and good and smiley servers. the menu was the valentines menu but, we opted al la carte dishes and a peppers for starters. using only the freshest of ingredients, the red snapper was just an explosion of juicy fish and pineapple with a soft hint of mexican flavour! his dish was a beef with pumpkin mash. it was such a beautifully designed mix of texture and taste for the pallet.

dessert was fun too! hot chocolate cake with a dallop of vanilla ice cream. sounds common but, together, they were a perfect hot and cold blend.
