Authentic and affordable Mexican food is hard to find in Singapore! As we were missing the Mexican food we had in the States, we decided to hunt for Mexican food to satisfy our cravings.
After some searching on the net, we decided to head to Viva Mexico which had good reviews online. The restaurant is authentically decorated and furbished with the Mexican ambience.

Adobo Chicken with Lime ($27) comes with salad, refried beans and Mexican rice. Personally, I felt that the chicken was not something that was very special. we had anticipated for the lime taste to permeate through the chicken but it just tasted like the lime was drizzled on top of the chicken. I liked the Mexican rice but feel that the portion is really quite small. The refried beans is seen to be a mash-like paste below. Surprisingly, it goes really well when mixed with the Adobo sauce as a dip for the chicken. For the price of the dish, I felt that portion was also small. They could at least gave more rice.
|Adobo Chicken with Lime: $27|
|Prawns Diabla: $26|
|Strawberry Magarita: $13|
|Beef Fajita with Tortilla (4 tortillas in a set) : $25|
|Cheese Nachos: $14|
