Comida Mexicana, most authentic and straight-forward contemporary Mexican food in Singapore

Comida Mexicana means Mexican food, it is no secret that their goal is to serve the most authentic and straight-forward contemporary Mexican food out there. They use  traditional methods to prepared fresh, premium ingredients (many imported from Mexico).



Comida Mexicana used to be an outlet of Mexican restaurant Margarita’s. One of Singapore’s first Mexican restaurants, Margarita’s opened in Singapore in Faber Drive in 1988. It soon opened two more outlets in East Coast Road and Dempsey Hill. In July, to differentiate the East Coast outlet from Margarita’s Dempsey Hill, Vivian rebranded the place and transformed it into Comida Mexicana. The menu is more affordable and there are bigger portions for sharing.



We start the dinner with some margaritas.

Margaritas all made from premium tequila.

It started in 1998 with two college friends, Danny Schneeweiss and Moy Guindi. Danny and Moy saw amazing things happening in the creative scene of Mexico City.

All around them, they saw new expressions of international sophistication, youthful energy and passionate creativity. Everywhere except tequila. Tequilas had become one-dimensional caricatures of tradition, or calculated celebrity-driven business ventures, devoid of creativity and truth. Danny and Moy wanted a tequila that bridged two worlds — the deeply rooted integrity of traditional tequila, and the vibrant, creative culture of modern Mexico City.



We had some freshly made tortilla chips before dinner is served. At Comida Mexicana, you order the prefer choice of dip to go with the tortilla chips. We tried the Red SalsaGreen Tomatillo Salsa and Chile Con Queso.


The Mexican Christmas Soup, they have been doing this soup for past 21 years. They used free range chicken, to make the soup , they don’t use starch but instead grind tortilla powder to thicken the soup. Its healthy and wholesome,  its very heart warming especially for the Christmas season.



Deep fried tortilla rolls with delicious chicken, jalapenos and cheese stuffing. Topped with fresh salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.

The Enrollados is the Mexican popiah. The tortilla is rolled up with chicken, jalapenos and cheese stuffing. It is then coated with egg and deep fried. This is topped with fresh salsa, sour cream and guacamole. The doughy bite of the enrollados was quite enjoyable with the different flavours working in harmony.


A favourite dish is the Mexican Yucantan Chicken. The chicken skewers are spiced with achiote and orange. The tender and juicy chicken was extremely delicious with the sweet marination.


Salted caramel Pina Colada bread pudding

A pleasing dessert to wrap up the dinner is the Salted Caramel Pina Colada Bread Pudding. The play of hot and cold, sweet and savoury together with the soft bread pudding provided a delightful finishing for a lovely dessert.

This place is highly recommended and pocket friendly too.
