Before the Mexican wave hit our shores, there was Cafe Iguana. Opened at the turn of the millenium in a spot by the Singapore River, the food here keeps its authentically Mexican. Try their Puerco en Chile Verde, or spicy pork stew served with tortillas and sour cream ($14) or the classic quesadillas ($15) to start. For a fuller meal, there are fajitas ($25-$30), burritos ($21-$27) and mains including the Mulato rib-eye ($44) and Green Chile Stew ($18). If it gets too spicy, choose from a range of 100 labels of 100% blue agave Tequila and Mezcal to tame the tongue, or their assortment of flavoured Margaritas, served frozen or on the rocks. Pint lovers can also look forward to the Iguana Lager on tap – a Mexican-inspired beer brewed exclusively by Brewerkz for Café Iguana.
