This Authentic Mexican Joint In Tanjong Pagar Serves Tacos From $8 - And It's Vegetarian-Friendly Too

One of the most enjoyable foods to eat, has got to be the taco.

It’s so simple yet so good, which probably explains why it’s considered to be one of the best foods to eat when drunk.

Is this why they serve alcohol with tacos?

In Singapore, there’s an increasing number of Mexican restaurants and a crowd favourite is Lucha Loco.

Going Loco For Tacos

Located on 15 Duxton Hill, Lucha Loco is a casual Mexican cocina (kitchen) and bar, serving up great Mexican food and tequilas (of course).

It first opened in 2012 and today, it is known as one of the few places in Singapore for great Mexican fare.

The coolest part of this restaurant has got to be the outdoor garden seating.

Beautifully decorated, yet still spacious enough to accomodate large groups, it’s almost as if you’re dining with fairies.

They serve up tacos and quesadillas, as well as a wide variety of other authentic Mexican snacks and sides.

Some of the favourites are the Baja Fish Tacos ($10), the vegetarian Corn & Artichoke Tacos ($8), and the Cangrejo Tacos ($16), which uses buttermilk fried soft-shell crab.
