Get zingy with Latin American food – think fiercely delicious dishes and potent cocktails that are all kinds of exotic
We’re guilty of taking gastronomic tours to exotic lands every other week… right here in Singapore. From Thailand and Vietnam, all the way to France and Germany (it’s the wurst), you’ve been there and eaten that. So after you’ve earnestly celebrated #TacoTuesday with punchy Mexican food, venture south to explore feisty Latin American food.
We’ve said it before about Bochinche and we’ll say it again. We’d happily stroll down the road from Honeycombers HQ to spend quality time with some Argentinian meat, a side of ceviche and a couple of empanadas. Just check out that spread above. Oh, and if desserts make you swoon, give the Dulce de leche a go.
Bochinche, 115 Amoy Street #01-02 Singapore 069935
This vibrant Latino joint instantly teleports you to Cuba for a night out in town. Have your fill of smoky Mezcal cocktails done right, punchy sharing plates, a rowdy live band and a mural that’s waiting to be in your next selfie. And if you spot Poncho by his bike keeping watch, tell him we said hello! We’re fans of the knowledgeable, friendly service here, the fantastic tapas-style bites and the damn good drinks. Check out our full review of Casa Poncho!
Casa Poncho, 14 Bukit Pasoh Road Singapore 089868
Even before you check Machu Picchu off your bucket list, explore the flavours of the land at an authentic Peruvian eatery right here on our island. Dive into a plate of ceviche (considered Peru’s national dish), meaty car-grilled skewers and other traditional Peruvian fare at Tono Cevicheria.
Tono Cevicheria, 7 Fraser Street Duo Galleria #01-49/50 Singapore 189356
Carnivore Brazilian Churrascaria
If the thought of a limitless supply of Brazilian grilled skewered meats (simply called rodizio) makes your knees weak, this churrasco chain is your slice of heaven. When you come up for air from all the rotisserie-roasted goodness, consider giving the salads, appetisers and soups a try.
Carnivore Brazilian Churrascaria, 30 Victoria Street #01-30 Chijmes, Singapore 187996
Sup like the Brazilians, Peruvians and Colombians with Vasco’s authentic street side snacks, fresh ceviche and meaty sharing plates. Grab a table and the closest fedora before you give Walking Dead a try – a signature cocktail that comes with a ‘two-drinks max’ policy. Go for it… we know you’ve had a long week.
Vasco, 42 Hong Kong St Singapore 059681
Take a culinary road trip down the Pan-American Highway at Sentosa Golf Club’s new eatery. Expect fantastic dishes from four countries – everything from salmon cakes, tostadas, Colombian chicken, burrata, empanadas and whatnot. But what’s really going to get you fired up about the food here? The moment you walk in, you’ll spot the traditional asado with meat cooking over coals. A sign of good things to come. Keep those spirits up with funky juice like roasted banana old fashioned, grown up Fanta, Pam Am highball.
Panamericana, Sentosa Golf Club 27 Bukit Manis Rd, Singapore 099892
