Singaporeans yearning for something "new" at Maxwell Road Food Centre (besides its famous fish porridge, Chinese rice dumplings and "lor mee") can now actually opt for Costa Rican.
Yup, this is no typo - you heard me right: Mamacitas, which served surprisingly tasty stir-fries with rice, right up the alley for many Singaporeans. I tried the "Casado Fajitas de Pollo", very tasty, well-seasoned saffron-tinted chicken-capsicum-onion combination, served with a colourful gourd, corn kernels, long beans and carrot stew, and a sharp tomato-onion salad, with steamed rice. It was a delicious departure from the usual Hokkien or Malay rice and noodle dishes one usually finds in Maxwell Rd FC.
