This Muslim-owned eatery has only been opened for 2 weeks but it's getting rave reviews for serving authentic AND affordable Mexican food. Almost all their dishes cost around $8-$10 and they come in generous portions too. [P.S. If you're visiting the west side of Singapore, don't miss out the hidden gems at the hipster district of Tiong Bahru!]

You can choose chicken, turkey or BOTH chicken and beef too ? All quesadillas are served with sour cream, salsa and Mexican rice.
