I should have known better than to go to a place called "Salsa Tex Mex" (and in such a touristy area), but I guess I was hoping to be surprised with good food (52 Boat Quay, 6533-1282). Alas, I was not. It was downhill right from the start. The service was slow and inattentive; I had to remind them to bring me chips and salsa, the former of which was stale, and the latter of which was likely pre-made and bottled (they had some other one that was fresh, but it was a wierd fruity salsa with beans and corn in it too). The tortilla soup
tasted like mildly sweet tomato soup from a can (with barely any tortilla in it, I might add), and the cheese enchilada wasn't much better than a microwaved TV dinner (and it didn't even come with beans or rice).
Well, the hunt for good Mexican food (OK, so this is actually Tex Mex
, but who's counting?) in Singapore is still unresolved: this place is not much different from Margarita's
or Santa Fe
(and I'm not too excited about trying those places in Holland Village either). I suppose it's not really fair for me to try to find good Mexican (pseudo or otherwise) in Singapore though; that would be like trying to find good chili crab
, which obviously isn't a very likely scenario either.
