Mash Avocado Sopes
Besides being aesthetically-pleasing, this Mash Avocado Sopes was so pleasurable to the taste buds. Squeeze the lime for more zesty flavour. Also, the crust at the bottom paired really well with the mashed avocado. Highly recommended!
Crab & Avocado Quesadillas
One of my FAV Mexican food and I’m loving this rendition at Comida Mexicana. Generously filled with crab and avocado fillings, the quesadillas was already tasty on its own (no need to dip it with salsa, sour cream or guacamole). Legit can’t stop once you had one!
Bonita Carnitas Mamacita
Served with a roasted orange to squeeze on the tender pulled pork (tasted really like Shio Bak) for an added citrus zing, the US pork collar is first seasoned then baked for two and a half hours. The tender pork comes with salsa rojas, salsa verde, and guacamole to add when you roll up the pork in the tortilla. A MUST to order!
Cornflakes Crusted Fish Fillets with Roasted Tomatillo Sauce and Fried Corn
Hands down my FAV dish at Comida Mexicana! Fish fillets were fried to perfection – crispy, flavoursome and not too oily. The roasted tomatillo sauce has a good mix of sour-spicy which made it super appetising. Very addictive!
Churros with Chocolate Dip
Ended the hearty Mexican meal with this handmade churros with chocolate dip. Churros were crispy, not overly sweet or oily and dip it into the rich chocolate sauce for maximum pleasure. My sweet tooth is satisfied!
