Baja Fresh Mexican Grill @Dhoby Ghaut, Bras Basah

Having been to Muchachos only recently, we can't help but to compare these two places, although we knew the environment is different. Here in Baja (pronounced as Ba - Ha, like Ja-lepeno is Ha-lepeno) Fresh, it's more of a fast food ordering style. The ingredients are really fresh, even though we had a pretty late dinner, at 9pm on a weekday, and they close at 10pm Monday- Thursday, 11pm on Friday to Sunday.

The place!

The thing that stuck to my mind was their tomato. In Singapore, a majority of Tomatoes is only just skin. Tough, chewy skin, no juicy flesh and sweetness. But here, it's really different. Their sauces bar, where I could eat these sweet juicy tomatoes to my fill, with the nachos chips on the side, has different levels of spiciness divided, into Mild, Medium and Hot. There's also a copious amount of lime and cilantro (chinese parsley) for you to add in to your meals as you wish.


Burritos Classic, filled with Crispy Mahi-Mahi ($15.95) Enchilado Style +$3.45

Quesidilla, filled with Char Siew (Pulled Pork) ($13.95)

Their Burrito is HUGE. Good for 2 girls to share kind. Their Mahi-mahi's fishy smell is abit strong, hence you may need abit more lime to negate it. For a safer dish, go for their Cheese or Chicken. They even have specials such as Duck and Lamb. They also have a Larger size, apart from the Regular, which you can really share for a full meal. It comes with more portions of nachos chips and tomatoes on the side.

Their Quesadilla, is good for a girl- very clean, not messy and wild as the Burrito. Very cheesy, and the sides with Sour Cream, Gucamole and (more!) Tomatoes go great with one another.

I'd be back to try their own dishes, such as their Tacos and bowls!
