You’ve probably seen photos of the colourful, massively loaded tacos from Huevos Mexican Restaurant spring up on your social media feed — well, it’s all we’ve been seeing these days, anyway. 

Loaded with a medley of hearty ingredients, Huevos’ viral-worthy tacos have captured the hearts of foodies islandwide, with many calling it the best spot for affordable and authentic Mexican fare in Singapore. 

The question that came to our minds was: Is it really that good? Or could it possibly be another one of those overhyped food fads that we’d never return for? 

If the food is as taco-rrific as the Mexican food aficionados claim it to be, then we most certainly can’t miss out on this place. Accompanied by our eager, rumbling bellies, we decided to check it out and see if the eatery is worth the craze and coin.

You’ll find Huevos located in a quaint shophouse unit, nestled along the bustling streets along North Bridge Road, which also houses other popular names such as Whiskdom and Twenty Grammes

But the tell-tale sign of its location is the vibrant, multi-coloured blade sign mounted on its shophouse exterior. It is loud and just screams personality, something that’s bolstered by the pumping music blasting in the background. 

Despite its inception in 2020, the joint is still on a roll — with business booming more so than ever. Snaking lines trail around the shop daily and snagging a reservation online isn’t an easy feat, either. During peak periods, it takes weeks before a seat even opens up. 

Most eateries tend to lose their crowd and appeal with time, but Huevos isn’t one of them. This is a testament to its popularity and flavours, and also why it has garnered a steady stream of regulars.

The menu at Huevos

The Huevos menu is extensive, boasting a scrumptious array of Mexican bites. From antojitos (little cravings, also known as light bites) to quesadillas and burritos, it’s hard to pick which to go for. 

When we asked for recommendations, the staff suggested that we start with the loaded nachos (S$19) first. Boy, was it a hulk of a dish! 

Crispy tortilla chips sit in a large bowl, where it’s heaped with a medley of different toppings. Think tender chunks of chicken, creamy guacamole, pico de gallo (salsa fresca) and gooey Cojita cheese. It’s also adorned with pickled jalapenos and onions.

Each crunchy tortilla chip is laden with a variety of sweet, spicy and savoury ingredients, so a party of flavours bursts in our mouths with every bite.

For its massive sharing portion, we reckon the loaded nachos can easily feed up to four friends.

We were most excited to try the baja fish tacos (from S$13), which were served in a pair of soft-shelled tortilla wraps. It’s a best-seller at Huevos Mexican Restaurant, with many raving about its succulent fish fillet.

And as the other Huevo reviews claimed, the dish was outstanding. Spiced breaded fish is embraced by a soft taco shell and it’s paired with tri-veg, tangy mango salsa and chipotle aioli.

One bite reveals an explosion of piquant and zippy flavours, which are must-haves when savouring Mexican food. The added punch of spice also lends a refreshing, spirited note to the baja fish tacos, though we found it a tad bit spicy for us.

Beef lovers will thoroughly enjoy the birria beef tacos (from S$14). Chock-full of beef short ribs and brisket, the moreish dish oozes sheer beef goodness. 

Beneath each crispy taco shell lies a decadent layer of gooey cheese, which pairs beautifully with hearty chunks of flavoursome beef. It’s also generously topped with tart onion salsa, which enhances the umami-ness of it all.

Remember to dip the tacos into the accompanying beef consomme, which has the perfect balance of saltiness and savouriness.

We ended the meal with a signature Huevos slushie (S$8), as well as a bottle of fizzy guava Jarritos (S$5). 

The former is our favourite, which is a milky blend of strawberry and banana. It’s pink, sweet and creamy — just the way we like it. Plus, it looks good for the ’gram. 

After trying the food at Huevos Mexican Restaurant, we can see why it’s a hit with the crowd. The menu seems to be tailored for sharing, so bring your friends here to enjoy the food with you! 

Here’s a pro-tip from us: Book your seats in advance, or walk in during a non-peak hour to avoid the crowd. 

This was a hosted tasting.
