[SG EATS] El-Mero Mero | Cocina Mexicana – Mexican Restaurant At Chijmes

El Mero Mero , a contemporary Mexican restaurant located Chijmes has recently undergo a revamp few months ago. My last visit to the restaurant was 2 years back when I came across the restaurant listed under The Entertainer App. Time flies and the restaurant has been operating for 5 years (opened since 2014). The restaurant is helmed by Mexican born Alejandro Blanco.El Mero Mero Chijmes

We tried quite a number of dishes during the dinner tasting session.
Guacamole S$12.00++ / S$18.00++

First up, we have the Mexican classic Guacamole starter. It uses fresh ingredients like smashed avocados with diced tomatoes, onions, Serrano, coriander and lime. I couldn’t stop at all.

Corn Sampler S$15.00++

Char-grilled organic baby corns served with Smoked Huitlacoche Donuts and chilli mayo dip. First time trying Huitlacoche and it is a type of fungus that grows on organic corn, also known as corn mushroom that is made into a mix with egg, flour and milk. It goes very well with the chilli mayo dipping sauce.

Hamachi and Coconut Ceviche S$21.00++

Instead the usual serving presentation, the ceviches served in a coconut shell. Fresh combination of hamachi aguachile, hibiscus flower milk and trout roe with avocado puree with lime juice element in it. Citrusy and refreshing flavour I would say.

Tostadas De Atun, Tuna Tartar S$17.00++

Baja Fish taco was one of my favourite dishes that night. It uses tempura toothfish served along with pico de gallo and pickled shallots, chipotle mayo sauce and flour tortilla. Deep-fried crispy coated fish tasted so good that I wish I can have second serving.

Tortilla Soup S$14.00++

It’s my first time trying this slow-cooked in thick roasted tomatoes and cream with flamed corn tortilla, avocado and guajillo. Thick and creamy soup texture and it can be quite filling too.

El Mero Mero Fajita S$38.00++
