1. Pulled Pork Quesadilla Set ($10.50 – With Chips & Guacamole)
The Pulled Pork Quesadilla is filled with a good ratio of ingredients, ensuring it doesn’t fall apart after the first bite. The pork is seriously tender, with the cabbage adding a pleasant crunchiness to each bite. Flavourwise, there is a good balance of savouriness, tanginess, and spice, giving you a symphony of flavours. Overall, the quesadilla is really comforting and light, making it a good snack if you’re looking for a quick bite.
As for the guacamole, it is a little more watery than your usual ones, but is nonetheless still a tasty dip. It has a good amount of spice and goes really well with the tortilla chips. Be sure to dip your burrito in for a beautiful layer of creaminess, giving you one heavenly bite.
2. Pulled Beef Burrito Set ($8 – With Chips and Salsa)
The Pulled Beef Burrito burrito is cut into two, ensuring you can eat it with ease. The beef is super tender and moist, with the mix of cabbage and lettuce adding a good contrast of textures. Be sure to eat it fast as the beef gets a tad dry after a while! As compared to the quesadilla, there is a lot more meat making it much more substantial.
The flavours are well-balanced, with the tanginess from the salsa shining through in each bite! To make his delicious salsa, James uses tomato puree and various secret ingredients. An incredibly refreshing dip that goes perfectly with chips and any of your mains!
3. Salted Egg Chicken Burrito Set ($10 – With Chips & Guacamole)
If you’re looking for a unique fusion of Mexican and Chinese, the Salted Egg Chicken Burrito is sure to hit the spot. The chicken is double-fried, giving it amazing crispiness, with extra crunchiness from the vegetables.
The salted egg sauce is reminiscent of your typical Chinese zi char version and is mixed with different Mexican sauces as well. What you get is a beautiful medley of “East meets West” in every burst of flavour. Additionally, James claims to be the only one in Singapore serving this dish, making it a must-try!
