Baja Fresh Mexican Grill At Rendezvous Gallery (Hotel)

Baja Fresh Mexican Grill is a casual dining Mexican restaurant located at the corner of Rendezvous Gallery part of Rendezvous Hotel, facing Bras Basah Road and the Singapore Management University, School of Social Sciences and Economics where Momolato is. Though it has been around for quite some time but I have yet to try. I am glad I did. It was better than I expected.

Nachos and dips
Nachos and dips

Before the start of the main, we were treated with Nachos and various dips. The good thing about Baja Fresh is that you can help yourself to the free flow of dips. My favourite dip has always been Guacamole as together with sour cream create the zesty refreshing taste. My least like among the various dip is the cheese dip as it wasn’t cheesy enough.

Lime Margarita

I don’t usually drink but I still wanted to have a sip to savour the taste. The Lime Margarita doesn’t come with a strong bitter Tequila taste, but a good balance of sweet, sour and alcohol that comes across to me as sweet tangy on the palate.

Spicy Chicken Americano Tacos

The highlight of the dinner was the Spicy Chicken Americano Tacos which was introduced recently. The filling were Lettuce, Shredded Parmesan Cheese, diced tomato with Spicy Chipotle Chicken with rice and beans by the side to be added into the Tacos as an option. A common comment among the group was the spicy was at the right level. For the Chilli monster out there, if you need to spice it up, either make a request while ordering or top it off with the sauces available over the Sauce and Dips counter.

Pork Quesadillas

Next, the Pork Quesadillas. Quesadillas has always been my favourite. As the skin is crispy and most importantly, there is melted cheese in it. This is a pork version.

Chicken Ultimo Burrito

My favourite for the night has to be the Chicken Ultimo Burrito, a burrito baked with sauce and melted cheese, as I like strong flavour food and this certainly fit well into the category. This was humongous and there are nachos by the side as well. The portion is good for 2 -3 persons. They have another version that is without the sauce and cheese.

Tostada Salad

The last main for the event was the Tostada Salad. This dish is huge. It is good for sharing of 4 -6 persons. All the ladies in the group hope Baja Fresh could offer individual serving as it is a good option for lunch when one is alone.

Churros

Before the end of the tasting event, we rounded it up with a sweet magical note as Churros was served. It was a hit among the bloggers. All were so excited at the sight of it. I wish the chocolate sauce could be thicker.

From their name Baja Fresh, you would have guessed that they might freshly make their food daily and true enough, they lived up to their name. Beside the retail outlet, Baja Fresh does catering too. And Baja Fresh will be having their latest outlet at The Sail in April 2015. Awesome news for those working in the Marina Bay Financial/Shenton area.

Super Loco At The Quayside, Robertson Quay

Finally, I was at Super Loco, a restaurant serving Mexican Street Food so you could expect to find Tacos, Quesadillas and Tortilla. I went with my Mom and Brother for dinner one weekend since it allowed pets at their Al Fresco seating, this was  fantastic since as we could bring along our family pet, Cookies.

We started with some drinks and chips with Guacomole and Salsa. I have the Mango Jarritos drink, a Mango soda drink. It was pretty refreshing. The service crew recommended us a Strawberry with Cucumber slice drink and my mom was keen to try. It was filled strawberry flavour and lightly scented cucumber. While my brother has a boring Mango Juice.

We enjoyed the chips very much. Both the Salsa and Guacamole were absolutely awesome.

Etoles Corn

The Etoles Corn was one of the recommended item by the service crew. There was some sauce with some white dusting on the corn.This was in fact the highlight of our dinner. We never know that Corn could be this awesome.

Honey Glazed Pork Ribs

The two other dishes that we ordered were Honey Glazed Pork Ribs and Quesadilas with Chicken. Both were good for sharing

The Honey Glazed Pork Ribs was slightly spicy and the best part was the meat was so tender. It could be removed by just using a fork. My brother didn’t enjoyed this dish as much as my mom and myself as he felt that the pork rib wasn’t as tasty as the sauce. It would be awesome if more of the marinate sauce could get into the ribs and it will definitely be more tasty.

Quesadillas with chicken

Lastly, the Quesadillas. I chose chicken as we have a pork while my mom doesn’t consume beef. This dish is as awesome as the rest.

It was a pity that my brother, very conservative with his food, didn’t enjoy the meal as much as we do. At least my mom did. As for me, I am certain that I will return for other dishes that are on their menu.

Local Adapted Taqueria Mexican Tacos In Hawker Style

I got to know that Golden Shoes Food Centre has a new stall selling Mexican Taco and I went down the very day.

Somehow, I kept thinking that the stall was at level two but it was at level three.
