When it comes to small bite-sized goodness, nothing beats eating a taco. This versatile Mexican food is made with a variety of fillings, such as chicken, beef, pork, seafood, or vegetables, that even picky eaters will find one in the menu that they’ll like. If you’re craving to eat this dish along with other Mexican cuisine, here are some restaurants that serve some of the most delicious tacos in Singapore.
Headed by Mexican chef-owner Jose Mauricio Espinoza, Papi’s Tacos offers a cosy and rustic place for diners who crave good tacos. Try one of their Crispy Pescado Tacos (S$14), which is among their best-sellers, or their Asada Tacos (S$15) if you prefer grilled grass-fed Australian beef.
