Helmed by the same people of Rappu & The Featherblade, is the latest kid on the Craig Road block - offering an Asian modern twist on Mexican tacos!

The quaint space is decked out in enchanting neon signages, reminiscent of the Mexican holiday - Día de los Muertos. I do like the dark bar vibes the place has got going - though at times it's actually way too dark to see the food in front of you.

Having enjoyed the handrolls from Rappu, I was excited to try this new concept of Mezcla. With a selection of both Japanese inspired modern tacos and a section dedicated to the more traditional Mexican fare - it was clear that I was going for the Japanese stuff.

The Salmon taco was first on the list, with Ikura, cured salmon, edamame refritos all in a crispy salmon skin taco shell. Now that's just ingenious I tell ya. Who knew fish skin could act as a taco shell!

Next up was the Unagi - filled with oyako tamago, Japanese cucumber and chipotle teriyaki all nestled in a seaweed taco shell. This was my favourite of the night and dang I could huff like 5 of these.

I'm really glad I got to try Mezcla, though the price is a tad high and it's difficult to be full from just a couple of tacos. It's also difficult to chill as the place is quite cramped and there's a dining time limit but for all it's worth - I loved them tacos and I'll go back again.

I've always loved Japanese food and that includes the crispy savoury deliciousness of tempura. The last time I've had proper tempura was at Tendon Kohaku and having constantly walked by Ginza Tendon Itsuki by the famed Keisuke brand, I was definitely down for more Tendon.

Going for their Special Mix option, Ginza's Tendon bowl was filled to the brim with tempura prawns, succulent chicken breasts, a mix of vegetables including a piece of shiitake and to top it all of - an onsen egg. What more can I say, this was a hella good bowl of Tendon. Not to mention the dainty complimentary chawanmushi appetizer it came with.

Definitely a good bang for your buck and Keisuke surely impresses again.


My name is Jeremy and I’m just a solitary foodie.
