This casual concept by Mexican stalwart Margarita's is all set to bring a load of deliciousness to the east. The decor is fun and so are the vibes, so bring good company. The menu is straightforward with no pretenses, and dishes feature the best quality ingredients, many imported straight from Mexico. Start with a drink — the bartenders are happy to pour you a beer, or to shake up a cocktail. The interestingly flavoured Margaritas (from $18 a glass) are worth a try — jalapeño + lime anybody? Then, settle down for a feast with the Mexican Yucatan Chicken ($28). The tender chicken skewers are slicked with achiote, garlic, orange juice and lemon juice, served with steamed tortillas on the side. For something a little different, try the Carnitas ($32), which serves fork-tender pulled pork alongside salsa rojas, salsa verde (red and green salsa), guacamole and warm corn tortillas. Don't miss the Salted Caramel Piña Colada Bread Pudding ($15). Expect, in Burpple Tastemaker Geraldine Tay's words, "fluffy, buttery brioche soaked in dark rum and cream, studded with chopped pineapples. Served with a generous scoop of coconut ice-cream, a drizzle of salted caramel sauce and a sprinkle of toasted coconut shavings."
Avg Price: $40 per person
