Most people don’t equate Singapore with good Mexican food. But if anybody questions why you’re going to Nixta for dinner and not another hawker centre, all it takes is one course for their opinion to change faster than they can say “tuna tostada.” Getting a reservation here requires some planning, but everything on the menu is great—go for tlayudas made with fresh ground masa tortillas, the killer duck barbacoa, and their Nixta Old Fashioned that’s made with tequila instead of whiskey. Enjoy it all in the warm space that’s constantly buzzy and slightly smoky, like how we imagine Matthew McConaughey’s ranch.
