If you are sick of the usual Chinese, Western and Japanese meals, shake things up by having a Mexican meal at MexOut.
MexOut offers Mexican meals that emphasizes healthiness while still maintaining the distinctiveness of Mexican food.
The MexOut outlet at Millenia Walk sports wooden tables and metal stools to replicate the feel of a Mexican eating house, with bright fluorescent lights to brighten up the area.
You can either opt to create your meal following 3 simple steps: 1. Choose your style 2. Choose your filling 3. Add extras, or you can choose from the combo meals, which comes with housemade tortilla chips and soft drink can.
MexOut’s Burrito [$9.50 for Small, $12.50 for Large] is a meal on its own, the 12-inch soft flour tortilla wrap is filled with Mexican rice, black beans, pico de gallo, cheese and filling of your choice. This is the Braised Beef with Fire Roasted Salsa, but there are other options such as Grilled Chicken with Pineapple Salsa, Veggies De La Cruz with Guacamole, Pulled Pork with Salsa Verde and Pan Fried Prawns with Smokey Chipotle (top-up $2). I find the braised beef a little too hard, the combination of the various hearty ingredients makes this a healthy and filling meal. Burritos are available in combo meals.
For something a little lighter, try the Street-Style Tacos [$9.50 for 2 Tacos, $12.50 for 3 Tacos]. The 6-inch soft corn tortillas are filled with pulled pork, salsa picante and pico de gallo. Served on a metal stand, it takes practice to eat tacos without dripping sauce all over the place. You can also get the tacos as a combo meal.
For those of you who don’t want to deal with messy hands and dipping sauces, the Salad Bowl [$12.50] is your ideal solution. Get the Protein Salad as a combo with the Protein Salad Combo [$15.90] which gives you corn salsa, pico de gallo, guacamole and cheddar cheese with double portions of grilled chicken and black beans for the ultimate protein kick.
MexOut makes their Tortilla Chips in-house. These tasty corn-crackers are even tastier when eaten with their Salsa and Hot Sauce. If you are not a spicy-eater, go for the Salsa which is not spicy at all, but refreshingly tangy. The Hot Sauce looks innocent enough, but it’s really spicy so have it at your own peril.
Key Lime Pie [$6] is technically an American dessert made with key lime juice, egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk. The taste is a cross between cheesecake and meringue. It’s very rich, good to share with friends.
Made by boiling long-grain white rice, cinnamon, lime peel and salt with egg and milk, Mexican Rice Pudding [$6] is about as Mexican as a dessert can get. I don’t like the taste, it’s like eating milk soaked rice with cinnamon powder sprinkled on top.
Besides canned soft drinks, MexOut also offers alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks such as Jarittos [$4.90], Gourmet Coffee [$3.50 – $5.50], Margarita (Glass) [$14.50], Sangria (Jug) [$45] and craft beers. Come down to MexOut at night for some Mexican-style after-work chill-out.
