bright flavours, rich food, beautiful space

hotos and more: 

this is a good place to come to, with the bright colors, a well-stocked bar, chirpy service (if you get the nice caucasian lady), and flavors that are fresh and crisp.   it was pure happenstance that we came to this place: it looked cool, sounded new-yorkish cool, and that beautiful interior sure is welcoming.

mexican food is always hearty, what with its copious use of fat and meat and grains, and we were pretty darn full here with three dishes between two. the dishes are well-priced, food comes in crazy-hand-burning casserole dishes that are almost definitely larger than recommended serving size, service is mostly friendly (except for a dude behind the bar who took over when our lovely waitress was busy), and the place is beautifully done out.

Worst Tacos ever (Service and Poor Table Maintenance)

Lifestyle listed this place as best 5 Tacos so it was my to do to try it. No one served us so we just picked a table and then was told we have to sit at the alfresco at one of the bar table. The bar table and the accompanying bar seats feels awkward for height unless you are super tall. Nonetheless, we continued but then. The table started wobbling badly. Informed the waitress and she disappeared. A guy in blue polo came over and took our order. After placing our order, I asked if he could have some paper and stacked it under the stand as it is wobbling since things might topple if we don't hold it down constantly. He said it is not that bad and went off. There was another guy complaining to him about the table and had to change table. We ordered the Corn Chips with 3 sauces. The accompanying sauces were too little. (photos attached). Had the tilapia taco and it was stuffed with rice garnish and a tiny piece of fish. Had chorizo taco and it was the same thing except the chorizo was chopped up and didn't have the kick. It is served as 3 for a choice so you can't have much variety except mouth of rice and garnish. So ordered quesaillas - the campesinos and I don't know what went wrong with the dish. Nothing Mexican about this joint at all. We left half our food and called for the bill. Got up and the disaster happened, the table wobbled till our bottles crashed to the floor and damaged my phone. Waiter wasn't even apologetic and said it isn't their fault. No discount, just denying. If you want to just chill with a drink, ya not bad place. If you are going there for food, I would say don't waste your money here.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
