MexOut

Mexican food to me is mainly mouth-watering burritos and tacos. If you want to enjoy that to the fullest at affordable prices, then head right to Mexout situated in Raffles Place. We headed there for dinner, and the first thing that struck me as I entered the restaurant was the interesting décor made up of wooden tables and sofas which gave it a rustic look. The wall art reminded me of plotted maps and the paint can for storing straws helped sell the theme.

The menu was clearly written on a chalkboard with vegetarian options clearly highlighted. The place allows you to design your own burrito in simple steps and caters to your food cravings to the fullest. You can add chips and a drink with your main meal for an additional $6.

The Orders

We first ordered ‘Chips and Salsa’ as the meal add-on. The chips were crunchy, well seasond and a delight to munch. The salsa along with it could have been slightly better as it was bland.

We then moved on to the main course. Their Regular ‘Vegetarian Buritto’ was quite a sizable portion. The filling was generous and the burrito was neatly enclosed in an aluminium wrap. We went for the Black beans, Vegetables De La Cruz, Sour Cream for the filling along with Salsa de La Verde.

We then decided that tacos should not be left behind in this Mexican journey. The ‘Corn Tacos along with Salsa Fresca ‘ were quite tasty but be prepared to have a mess on your hands. They have salsa catering to different spice levels which is a plus in my book.

If you work in the CBD area, this is an ideal place for lunch. They have indoor and outdoor seating, but the seats are limited. I’d suggest avoiding the 7 – 8 PM time slot in the evening. If you are in a large group, I’d recommend reserving a table. Good music and friendly staff along with interesting charts about Mexican food added to the appeal of the restaurant. Some of the interesting quotes that they had put up are ‘Anything tastes good with salsa’ and ‘Life is a combination of magic and tortilla chips’. As a foodie, I agree and it added to the come-back feel of the place.
