Ola! Craving for Mexican food in Singapore? Go to Piedra Negra, along Haji Lane.
Haji Lane on a weeknight, around 7pm...
(Nearest MRT: Bugis)
Piedra Negra's al fresco tables. We chose to dine inside though because of the interesting interiors. Mas feel ko ang pagiging Mexican cantina niya sa loob. Yes, they serve San Miguel beer, see the ashtray (photo below). And they have Pinoys in their staff so expect good service.
What we had:
Nachos: "...flavorful combination of toppings such as Mexican beans, chicken, delicious melted cheese, and sour cream. SGD10.90
Costillas de Cerdo al BBQ (aka Baby Pork Ribs): "Marinated pork ribs glazed with tamarind sauce, chili and herbs, grilled in slow fire for perfect tenderness." SGD17.90
Hubby: His favorite Coca-Cola, SGD3.
Me: Lime Juice (Had the good-girl version of the Margarita. Lol.). SGD3.
SIMOT ANG RIBS!
What we loved about the place: everything! The ambiance, the interiors, the service, the food - they were all good. We wanted spice, we got spice! The pork ribs were so tender, they'd melt in your mouth. The nachos were super flavorful. Their hot sauce were really hot! Everything was reasonably priced. Total bill was around SGD40 (almost Php1500), with 10% SC and 7% GST.
