Fast Food, Mexican, Rocks


As far as fast food goes, I always appreciate Mexican. However, we've quite crap ones in Singapore. The only restaurant I'm rather fond of is Casa Latina. In Brisbane, I've totally fallen head over heels in love with fast food joint Guzman y Gomez. The man and I, the friends and us have been back many times not just for a meal, but for snacks and takeaways. Muahahahah. People who have seen my usual portions of food of late, will be extremely impressed by how much I can eat here.

The quesadillas make a good snack. But they're enough for me for a meal. The quality of that cheese could be improved, but that's just me. The burritos are da bomb. Thick and heavy, they pack a punch. Black beans, Mexican rice, loads of filling of your choice, with either beef, chicken or barramundi, and of course vegetarian. I LOVE the veggie burrito. Mouthwatering goodness.

3 choices of Tabasco, as well as heaps of sliced jalapeño in vinegar at the side for your picks. They do a mean guacamole. The friends and I love it for the healthy quotient and the man just likes being able to choose a wheat tortilla too. Us suckers will pay an extra A$3 for that extra tub of yummy guacamole that we could just scoop and eat on its own. I foresee many friends loving this joint. There're now many outlets in New South Wales and Queensland. If this is indeed coming to Singapore next year, I'll be friggin' thrilled.

For A$10.50, this is the nachos you get. No bullshit- proper corn chips, enough cheese, plenty of caramelized onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, lentils and guacamole. Mmmmm.

Dawn: american owner of this GYG is american and i'm definitely seeing Chipotle inflences here! There's Mad Mex, but they've a grittier vibe.

notabilia: tell me if you know of sny other good Mexican eateries in Singapore! We lack them. Cafe Iguana at Clarke Quay does good margaritas and pretty much nothing else.
