I had a small taste of Mexican food when I was holidaying in San Francisco, California, where I enjoyed the affordable but delicious variety of tacos from food trucks found throughout the city. Tacos are but a small – if iconic – aspect of Mexican cuisine; it consists of many more wonderful dishes such as tostadas, quesadillas, and ensaladas.
My first and closest encounter with Mexican cuisine was probably the ones I had while on a study abroad trip to the USA. I was impressed for its convenience, affordability as well as the assortment of flavours that seemed packed around a tortilla. When I heard that a new restaurant called El Mero Mero just opened in Singapore with an aim to serve up delicious modern Mexican cuisine, I was keen to reconnect with some memories of past. But boy, was I surprised with how they recreated Mexican food. Simply put, they revolutionised my imagination and flavours of the simple Taco while introducing me to hint of Mexican creations!
