Hombre Cantina is located at Boat Quay, facing the Singapore River. With its alfresco dining concept, it makes a nice place to chill out over Mexican food and a beer or two. =)
And you 'hear' me right, we were having Mexican food at Hombre, really unique hor? To me, Mexican food is probably nachos, tacos & salsas sauces.... Let's find out more!
The nachos were freshly made, so they remained crispy at the end of our 1.5 hour session. I was rather amazed that they didnt become "lau hong" after so long. Keke. Definitely an addictive snack for the chip lovers.
Tortilla chips topped with black beans paste, cheese, pico de gallo, sour cream & fresh cilantro. It was quite a huge basket and I suggested to share it with friends rather than having it as a main on your own. The 'secret ingredient' was the black beans paste, which was surprisingly good.
Tortilla folded & grilled with cheese, with the filling of your own choice: Fried Pacific Dory / Roasted Pork Shoulder/Braised Beef Brisket/Roasted Chicken Thigh/Roasted Veggies
We got to try both the chicken and beef fillings, which were the more popular selection. I must say, this was my favorite main. The quesadillas were served warm with generous servings of the meat filling.

For the rice lovers, you can opt for the burrito. The rice tasted a bit tangy and went well with the braised beef brisket, which was pretty tender. A pity was that the portion was a bit too big to handle? It may be messy to eat, especially for the office ladies. What I did was to just scoop out the filling and just ate the filling lor... Probably making them into mouth size portions will be better?
3 soft corn tortillas wrapped with cabbage & pico de gallo, with the filling of your own choice: Fried Pacific Dory / Roasted Pork Shoulder/Braised Beef Brisket/Roasted Chicken Thigh/Roasted Veggies
I only tried the one with the medium salsas (the bottom picture), which came with the fried pacific dory. The fried pacific dory was nice, served warm and top with the cool tomato salsas.
Lettuce topped with black beans, pico de gallo & sour cream, topped of with your choice of filling.

At one glance, the salad bowl and rice bowl looked quite the same.
For sides, we had the Mexican corn ($8) and Chicken Chicharrones ($10)
