Throughout the month of May, savour classic Mexican favourites with Hard Rock Café Sentosa’s new expanded menu.

After a long, fun-filled day at Sentosa’s array of attractions, be sure to retreat to Hard Rock Café Sentosa for a casual family meal. This May, Hard Rock Café Sentosa will entice Mexican food lovers with its expanded menu, featuring traditional Mexican flavours such as huajillo, barbaco, carnitas and assorted peppers for an extra dose of spiciness. Expect a menu full of hearty tacos, quesadillas and playful cocktails to go along.

Here are some of the dishes we have tried:


Yucatan Style Shrimp Ceviche

For something refreshing and light to kick off your meal, the Yucatan Style Shrimp Ceviche will delight your taste buds. Served with yellow corn chips, the ceviche features a delicate amalgamation of steamed shrimp chunks, lime, orange, avocado, cucumber, cilantro, tomatillos (Mexican husk tomato) and peppers. The result is a dollop of citrusy, juicy goodness abound in flavours and spices resting atop the crunchy corn chips.

The Yucatan Style Shrimp Ceviche is going at SGD 18.

Crispy Shrimp with Aji Amarillo Sauce

A must-try for starters is the Crispy Shrimp with Aji Amarillo Sauce, featuring crispy breaded shrimp tossed with feta cheese, spicy pecans, cilantro and green onion. Great for sharing, the breaded shrimp is reminiscent of the Japanese Ebi Fry, but with a Mexican touch. Served with a zesty yellow chilli pepper sauce that nicely complements the shrimp, the sauce is surprisingly not too spicy and tastes like a cross between mayonnaise and tartar sauce. The chunks of feta cheese add sharpness to the overall flavours of the dish, while the spicy pecans add a pleasant crunch.

Assorted Mexican Street Tacos

A slightly heavier appetiser on the menu is the Assorted Mexican Street Tacos, which features an assortment of three street style Tacos – Carnitas (Pulled Pork), SouthWest Pulled Chicken, and Grilled Spicy Shrimp. Made with soft, delicate flour tortillas, these tacos hold an interesting mix of shredded lettuce, queso fresco cheese, pico de gallo (fresh salsa), cotija sauce and sour cream. Each mouthful packs quite a juicy, flavourful bite, though holding everything together can get a little messy. But of course, you can’t truly enjoy a taco without getting your hands dirty.

Both the Carnitas and SouthWest Pulled Chicken tacos are priced at SGD 17 each, while the Grilled Spicy Shrimp taco is priced at SGD 18.


Grilled Shrimp with Mexican Street Corn Inspired Salad

If you like the bitterness from rocket leaves, and if you think you can handle Mexican spices, this Grilled Shrimp with Mexican Street Corn Inspired Salad is perfect for you. Featuring a bed of greens topped with black beans, pico de gallo, roasted corn, avocado cubes, and jalapenos, this colourful multi-textured dish is further lined with succulent achiote spiced shrimp. One thing to note though is that the chilli orange vinaigrette and yellow chilli pepper is on the spicier side and might not be suitable for everyone’s taste buds. You will only truly enjoy this dish if you can handle the spice!

The Grilled Shrimp with Mexican Street Corn Inspired Salad is priced at SGD 19.

Smoky Chicken Tinga Tacos

Another spicy, boldly flavoured dish is the unique Smoky Chicken Tinga Tacos. Unlike the usual soft tortillas you find in tacos, this one features a crisp exterior almost reminiscent of a nacho chip. Resting within the crisp tortilla skin is a zesty combination of shredded chipotle chicken, cotija cheese, fresh cheese, avocado, and yellow chill pepper sauce. Though the crisp exterior makes it even harder to hold all the ingredients together, the burst of spicy, tangy and savoury flavours certainly makes up for this. The tacos are also served with a side of tomatillo salsa and spicy sauce – but they taste good enough on their own.

The Smoky Chicken Tinga Tacos are going at SGD 18.

Fiesta Chicken Quesadillas

When it comes to Mexican fare, everybody loves a good cheesy quesadilla. Hard Rock Café’s Fiesta Chicken Quesadillas offers a tropical hint with its grilled pineapple chunks that add a mild sweetness to the otherwise savoury dish. With a hearty mix of shredded chipotle chicken and melted cheese sandwiched between two pieces of soft tortilla triangles, the quesadillas are served with spicy sauce, sour cream, and guacamole on the side. Do note that the tortillas are limp and rather delicate, and may risk getting soggy if left out for too long

The Fiesta Chicken Quesadillas are going at SGD 22.

Vegetarian Tacos

Hard Rock Café aims to cater to a wide range of palates and vegetarian options are certainly no exception. If you’re looking for a taco that is brimming with fresh and wholesome ingredients, the unassuming Vegetarian Tacos will make a great refreshing option. With a healthy and hearty combination of chipotle sweet potato, quinoa, pico de gallo and queso fresco (vegetarian) enveloped within the soft tortilla skin, the taco is served with tomatillo salsa, cotija cheese and sour cream on the side.

The Vegetarian Tacos are going at SGD 16.

Specialty Cocktails



For something easy to drink, Amigo features sweet berry notes in its combination of Mezcal with Luxardo Liqueur, blueberry, orgeat, lime juice and cherries.

Amigo is going at SGD 15.



For a refreshing take on the Mezcal, Diablo features muddled cucumber, agave, mango puree, and lime juice, topped with ginger beer for an added carbonated touch. The cocktail is served with a candied ginger.

Diablo is going at SGD 15.

Trouble Maker

For something less sweet, opt for the Cointreau-based Trouble Maker – featuring and interesting mix of Mezcal with fresh Lime Juice, Chipotle Pineapple syrup and muddled Jalapeño rings. The result is a mixture of bitter and sour flavours, with a spicy aftertaste.

Trouble Maker is going at SGD 15.
