To do that, all you really need is a wide spread of scrumptious food and drinks for your guests to have a good time. Trust us, there is no better party food than Mexican cuisine. Finding the best Mexican food delivery in Singapore might be tough, but we have got you covered. Now that restrictions have slowly eased up, many of us are out and about (with our group of 8, of course!) and having a blast. Here is our take on the best of Mex, for your parties, celebrations or even just a quiet night at home with the family.
1. Papi’s Tacos: home of taco lovers
As any host with the most knows, no party is complete without mouthwatering tacos. That is where you can rely on Papi’s Tacos. Helmed by a native of Papalotla in Mexico, Mauricio Espinoza promises to bring his customers honest food steeped in tradition. If you are looking for a range of their favourite flavours for your guests, the Papi’s Platter ($55) is the one for you. Opt for individual tacos if you have picky eaters, of course! Burritos are a big hit too, especially theBurrito De Suadero ($18), packed with slow-cooked beef brisket and black beans. With an amalgamation of slow-cooked beef brisket, Mexican rice, and pico de gallo, your guests are sure to be licking their fingers once they are done. The best tacos Singapore has to offer? Trust them when they say, Papi knows best!
At Vatos Urban Tacos, you get the best of both worlds. Dive into their rendition of ‘KoMex’ cuisine, curated by two Korean Americans who wished to introduce a new dining experience in Korea. Influenced by Mexican street tacos in Los Angeles and their home-cooked Korean meals, you can find innovative signatures like Kimchi Carnitas Fries ($19) and Korean Pork Belly ($13). A taste of Korea is infused in each dish, whether its soy paste, ssamjang aioli, or the quintessential side of Kimchi. Spoilt for choice? Have it all with their online exclusiveHoliday Party Pack($109).
3. Santa Fe Tex-Mex Grill: authentic Texan-Mexican flavours
New kid on the block? Not quite! Serving up Texan-Mexican favourites since 1999, Santa Fe Tex-Mex Grillwas, believe it or not, started on a riverboat! Founder Eric Saw was taking a casual stroll along Sentosa in 1997 when he found an unoccupied riverboat from Mississippi which he later purchased and started the restaurant. Fast forward, Santa Fe is bringing the Tex-Mex experience to your homes, not to mention high achievers in the list of best Mexican food Singapore has got to offer. Go big with the Double Platter Mega Feast ($148), a 2-in-1 platter with signature grilled meats and party bites like quesadillas, chimichangas, and buffalo wings. The Taco-Spiced Calamari ($11) is another dish to keep a lookout for.
4. Café Iguana: delectable Mexican delicacies
I am pretty sure we have all heard of the famous Café Iguana before. If not, now is the time to find out.

Enjoy a bit of everything from fajitas to enchiladas with their Family Combo($118), perfect for a weekend party of 4. Grab a pack of beers for a discounted price to accompany the feast if you are feeling adventurous and in the mood to party during happy hour! If you are going for something simple, their Shredded Beef Chimichangas ($26) and Quesadillas ($15) will not disappoint.
5. Comida Mexicana: the jewel in the East
