Let’s taco bout it

This came with grilled white dory, fresh cabbage and smoked chipotle aioli on a flour tortilla. My fav fish tacos in sg!! White dory was grilled nicely with some crisp, but still very tender inside. The chipotle aioli gave a slight heat to the taco, and the cabbage provided a contrasting freshness. Was a very enjoyable taco 👌🏼

Guzman is yummy as usual! Tried the barramundi this time and the fish was not bad, quite tender and moist. I like that the rice is all separated and kinda fluffy, and the salsa adds a refreshing element to the meal.

I am biased towards Guzman!! I love how it’s always so consistent and they are pretty generous with the well-marinated grilled chicken :-) also my first time trying hard shell (usually I get soft shell) and WHAA I have been missing out! Hard shell reminds me so much of nacho chips which is GREAT!! I love the guac add-on too :”)

Also was pleasantly surprise to see Guzman (@ Tanjong Pagar) having latte from common man coffee roasters at $2?!? Although the latte was rather milky (not the best compared to the one I tried at their flagship) but friend and I are both v v satisfied :-)

my renewed love for guzman!!!!! The tacos were SO GOOD!!! Ordered nachos + fries + guac to share and everything was amazing my belly was satisfied!!!

The tortilla chips w guac & sour cream was alright - some chips were still warm, and went well with the cold guac/sour cream.

The quinoa salad (served cold) was rather refreshing, and I particularly appreciated the little crunch bits which elevated the dish.

Chicken tacos were flavourful, with a balanced proportion of juicy & charred chicken cubes, melty cheese, mashed beans, cabbage, tomatoes, served on a lightly toasted flour tortilla. Pretty decent, but not outstanding.

Latino pasta came piping hot with a savoury crab & tomato sauce, and lots of crispy garlic bits. They were rather generous with the crabmeat! I liked the sauce which was tasty & not salty, but if I were to nitpick, I think linguine wasn’t the best choice of pasta.

The tres leches cake was a super spongy cake - the texture is was somewhat like a soggy bread? The coconut milk (I think) was light and not jelat at all. I’m on the fence for this one, because while I sorta enjoyed it (other than the too-sweet canned pineapple) as it was a refreshing dessert, the soggy bread texture put me off a little.

P.s. owners of tonito please bring tono back, I loved that place and their ceviches/appetisers/SERVICE :’)

The food was great! A satisfying Mexican meal :) The baja fish tacos were contained crispy battered dory which was flaky and succulent, and went well with the tangy coleslaw & sweet pineapples.

The pork guisado (stew) - pork shoulder slow cooked in green tomatillo sauce was delicious as well. It was warm and tangy with a bit of heat from the jalapeños; it tasted very homey! Would have been great with wraps. We had it with the Mexican style rice, which was tomato-based. The guac was tasty as well!

Our first time trying horchata (Google says it’s a nut based rice drink), and it was milky with lots of cinnamon. I’m pretty neutral about this - I didn’t dislike it, but I can’t say I like it either.

Will definitely be back to try their other stuff!

SUPER underrated fries from Vatos!!!!! Easily my favourite dish of that night - the portion is huge and the seasoning on the fries was so so flavourful, coupled with the sauce served delicious!!! I tried the highly raved kimchi fries my previous visit and I actually prefer this simple shoestring fries

The options are pretty pricey for someplace that serves relatively average Mexican food. The pork was slightly tough, and the burrito was just alright. Perhaps we ordered the wrong stuff, but it’s unlikely I’ll return again.

A very filling meal! Liked the burrito better, the kimchi was an interesting addition and the burrito was decent.
The beer battered fish wasn’t flaky enough, so that was a miss.

What I really enjoyed though, were the chips and salsa! The first basket is free, and they were so good - crunchy chips with salsas that were refreshing and delivered a kick. I’ll come back for the chips, but I think I’ll stick to papi’s tacos for fish tacos / chachacha for Mexican nosh :)

The fish tacos were my fav of this meal, as they were crisp at the edges. The burrito and pork tacos were pretty good too, with a good balance of fresh and hot ingredients. I feel that they do Mexican better than vatos!

Guzman satisfies, as usual! I got the chicken while my meal bud got the pulled pork. My chicken was grilled well, was tender and had some char. The components (beans, tomatoes, rice, cheese) went well together. Tried some of the pulled pork which was fairly soft and juicy. My only gripe was that some nachos weren’t crisp!

First time trying the fries and they were quite good! Crisp on the outside, soft on the inside. They left the potato skin on as well, which I like!

The chicken tacos were very average and it rly didn’t do anything for me. The chicken was reminiscent of the diced chicken that u find in mediocre Korean bibimbaps.

The fajitas however, was surprisingly good! The grilled chicken & veg (yellow zucchini, capsicums, onions) was served sizzling hot and had a nice smoky flavour. I slathered on some sauce onto the flour tortilla, put on some chicken&veg, then rolled it up and ate it! It was satisfying :)
