Regular readers would have noticed that the blog has been a little quiet lately – I’ve started a new job and the hours can be a little intense. This has also led to fewer food excursions, and less material for new posts. Anyhow, to cut a long story short, we’ve been exploring the wonderful world of home delivered cuisine.

I haven’t had a lot of Mexican food since moving to the north east of Singapore – Bugis had a couple of good options (one good restaurant and a Baja Fresh outlet), but Tampines less so. It sounds odd, getting excited about Mexican food in Singapore – but when you haven’t had something for a while, it can be a real novelty.

One home delivered outlet that has really impressed me is Cafe Mexicana – we order via the Foodpanda.sg site for home delivery. My personal favourite from Cafe Mexicana is the Chimichanga – basically a deep fried fajita – pictured below slathered with bean dip, pico de gallo, and chili sauce:

The food from Cafe Mexicana is delivered in moulded plastic trays – these seem fairly effective in keeping the various dishes separated. Here are a couple of side dishes – Jalapeno Poppers (jalapeno peppers stuffed with cheese, then breaded and fried) and a trio of dips with corn chips. The Poppers come with pico de gallo, chili sauce, and a green salad.

Apart from structural integrity, the plastic trays are also microwaveable.

Pictured below is the Chicken Quesadilla – and sorry – the photo does not adequately capture the tastiness of the food :) The Quesadilla is accompanied by guacamole, bean dip, and Mexican rice.

As an aside, we have used Foodpanda.sg a few times and have nothing but good to say about the site or the service. Some of the outlets they cover have no delivery charge or minimum order (while others definitely do!) but they are pretty up front about this.

  1. That looks very yummy! That is something my boyfriend and I have lamented for many a night, delivery from a Mexican restaurant when we don’t feel like going out. :) Great job!

    • Hi Rhiannon,

      thank you for your comment – and one of the advantages of living here is that there are many home delivery options (I am very glad we have found a good Mexican option)

      Best regards, Andrew
