Pleasant ambience, great food, and polite staff – there’s nothing that we don’t love about Margarita’s in Dempsey Hill. And as you can expect from the restaurant’s name, this restaurant serves up pretty amazing margaritas as well. From classic lime margaritas to a Mexican Bulldog! Not to mention the selection of specially curated drinks and a variety of dishes made with exotic ingredients that are also available for you to enjoy. 

Margarita’s has been in service since 1988, so it is already a well-known spot for casual diners who are looking to satisfy their Mexican food cravings. The restaurant also looks very homey, which is made even better with the occasional presence of live music. If you don’t have company, you can take a seat on the outdoor patio, wherein you can savour your meal while watching the world go by.

2. Chimichanga, for affordable Mexican food and cocktails

It is probably surprising to see a Mexican restaurant at the heart of Little India in Singapore, but Chimichanga proves that it is in a class of its own. What we love the most about this restaurant is the affordability of every menu item. They have almost everything when it comes to your comfort Mexican food, from tacos to burritos to even churros for dessert. Chimichanga also offers freshly shucked oysters for less than $10, and fortunately for you, the signature margaritas in this restaurant are priced reasonably as well. On Wednesdays, they usually have promos for booze, so make sure that you plan your ladies’ night out strategically! 

If you are located far from Little India, Chimichanga also has a branch in Holland Village for you to check out.

With its 30 years of experience in Singapore’s foodie scene, Cha Cha Cha is one Mexican restaurant that you should really try. They have got all the yummy Mexican treats under one roof, plus more unique spins on the traditional Mexican cuisine. For instance, Cha Cha Cha offers dessert nachos, which are essentially deep-fried tortillas topped with chocolate and mango sauce. We must say that it is a pretty unusual combination, but we just know that Cha Cha Cha can make anything work when it comes to flavours. They also offer burrito bowls, just in case a single burrito roll is not enough to fill your hungry tummy.

As one of Singapore’s favourite neighbourhood taquerias, Papi’s Tacos takes you into an authentic, fuss-free Mexican fare in the Lion City. If you love tacos as much as we do, then you are absolutely in for a treat. Papi’s Tacos offers a wide selection of tacos including tacos de carnitas, tacos de pescados, and even a vegan one. The servings are also big and the ambience is lively – it will be like in Mexico yourself. And of course, no taqueria is ever complete with the presence of high-quality tequilas and refreshing margaritas to pair with the mouthwatering tacos. Even better, the restaurant is open every day of the week, so you can have a much-needed drink on a Monday mid-day. We won’t judge!

5. Lucha Loco, for a lush garden setting

If we are mainly talking about the ambience, Lucha Loco is the clear winner. This Mexican restaurant is basically a casual and vibrant Mexican garden cocina complete with a bar, making it the perfect venue for long-overdue catch-up sessions with friends. Don’t worry, day drinking is very much accepted so you can go straight to the restaurant after an early off from work. Wait until it gets dark, though, since the vibe is even made better at nights with fairy lights draped all over the garden. 

Lucha Loco’s menu varies on the day and time of your visit, so make sure that you check the options before you make a reservation. Else, expect to be surprised. We suggest that you drop by on Taco Tuesdays since Lucha Loco lets guests build their own tacos with a DIY platter.

If you want to enjoy great-tasting Mexican food with a mesmerizing view of the Singapore River, then Cafe Iguana is the place for you. Founded in 2000, Cafe Iguana showcases some of the best chili con queso and nachos in town, but what we really love are their tasty chimichangas.  What’s also great is that they offer a variety of plant-based options, so you don’t really have to eat meat to be able to enjoy the taste of Mexican cuisine. Moreover, Cafe Iguana boasts a large selection of Happy Hour drinks to perfectly go with your meals. Try their premium El Destilador tequila, for instance. On the rocks or mixed with your favourite cocktail – the choice is yours.

Don’t worry, Guzman y Guzman is not like your typical fast-food joint. They prioritise using only the freshest ingredients and authentic cooking techniques to create food of excellent quality – no shortcuts or whatsoever. Moreover, we like how every branch is family-friendly, with kid-sized portions of tacos and quesadillas.

9. Vatos Urban Tacos, for a lovely fusion of Mexican and Korean flavours

We have all heard of TexMex cuisine, but this KoMex cuisine from Vatos Urban Tacos is something new to our radar. Combining the best of Mexican food with Korean flavours, this restaurant introduces innovative yet delicious creations like kimchi carnitas fries, galbi tacos, and spicy chicken quesadillas. Both cuisines are known for their spicy taste profiles, so make sure that you also order a mug (or maybe two) of Vatos Urban’s special ice-cold draft beer to beat the heat. Overall, everything on their menu is absolutely a treat, so thankfully, Vatos Urban has now three branches all over Singapore.

10. El Mero Mero, for a more elevated Mexican dining experience

As much as we find tacos and nachos irresistible, Mexican cuisine does not end on those tortilla-based meals. So, if you want a more refreshing take on Mexican food, we suggest that you check out El Mero Mero. We usually devour our Mexican food in a more convivial setting, sometimes even with the presence of live music, and of course, some cocktails on the side. But with El Mero Mero, the setting is more sophisticated than usual, so expect the food to be a bit fancier as well. Don’t worry, the dishes are priced reasonably, so don’t hesitate to book your table as soon as you can!
