New-kid-on-the-block shows off new convivial dining concept on East Coast Road. Comida Mexicana is quietly located at East Coast Road. I was warmly greeted by Vivian, the director who has 21 years of experiences of cooking Mexican food and successfully replicated and created authentic dishes that have received many accolades from diners that include the Mexican community in Singapore.
The decor of Comida Mexicana exudes a vibrant and welcoming ambience of a Mexican home. With the tables and chairs in red, blue, yellow…and the floor tiles in bright orange, the mix of colors brightens you up immediately and gets you ready to enjoy the equally colorful Mexican food that is to follow.
Chile Con Queso ($16++) – melted Monterey Jack and red cheddar cheeses, and jalapeño. I was amazed by the freshness of the sauces. Vivian told me that the sauces and food are all made from the ingredients imported from Mexico and the USA.
Enrollados ($18++) which comprises chicken, Monterey Jack Cheese, Jalapeno and tomatoes rolled in a wheat tortilla before being coated in an egg wash and fried. Come and enjoy this Mexican style Poh Piah.
Guacamole lovers will adore the Mash Avocado Sopes ($20++), a typical Mexican entrée with a homemade masa (A type of crust used in sopes and other tart-like dishes, it can be made of pastry dough or corn-flour, depending on the recipe) base piled high with refried beans, guacamole, and a lime wedge.
Comida Mexicana frequently surprises guests with its off-the-menu specials created by Vivian, such as Crab & Avocado Quesadillas ($28++). Eat it when it is warm, the melted cheese tasted so good with the other ingredients.
Carnitas ($32++), a Mexican pulled pork dish with tortilla, salsa rojas, salsa verde and guacamole. This rendition features a shredded US pork collar seasoned with cinnamon and other aromatics, then slow-baked in an oven for two and a half hours. Squeeze the roasted orange on the meat for an added zing.
Mexican Yucatan Chicken ($28++) is five chicken skewers coated in an achiote , garlic, orange juice and lemon juice glaze, and presented in a fried tortilla bow filled with salad and cabbage slaw, and four steamed tortilla. Open a tortilla, place a chicken skewer onto the tortilla, remove the skewer. Here you go, you made your own yummy wrap in a second.
For a substantial dessert, pick the Salted Caramel Pina Colada Bread Pudding ($15++) – brioche soaked in dark rum and cream, studded with chopped pineapples, served a la mode with a scoop of coconut ice cream drizzled with salted caramel sauce, and garnished with toasted coconut shavings.
The Kahbrita ($14++), a Mexican take on the Italian affogato showcases homemade coconut ice cream coated in dark chocolate powder, Kahlua liqueur, and crowned with a shot of espresso for a caffeine kick.
There is a long list of drinks available, but my personal choice is the cucumber-mint margaritas ($18++). It is refreshing and cleanses the palate with each sip.
Comida Mexicana brings you with authentic Mexican food. It is a great place to hangout with friends, and even suitable to host private function/ event.
