Barrio by Mex Out is the Mexican taqueria that opens a new chapter on the dynamic success of its parent brand. Everything you loved about Mex Out is now in an exciting 70-seater location right in the heart of Orchard Road.
The barrio, Spanish for ‘neighbourhood’, is a residential space for Mexicans to work, trade, socialise – in short, a hangout.
Living up to its name, Barrio by Mex Out takes on a hip, cheery space for people to take pleasure in good food and fine drink with great company. Urban but with a cool neighbourhood feel, it’s a hangout for friends, fun, and food.
Guided by its Fresh-Mex cuisine, Barrio by Mex Out guarantees authentic Mexican flavours derived from the freshest and highest quality ingredients. The restaurant features an expanded menu of fan favourites from Mex Out, complemented by new plated dishes, starters, bar snacks, tortas (a Mexican burger), and desserts. It’s a journey of healthy Mexican deliciousness – at prices that will make you smile.
Fresh-Mex is born of Mex-American cuisine, with influences from ancient Mayan and Aztec culture, through Spanish and French traditions to the modern flavours and spices of Baja California and the Caribbean. Combine this with the freshest quality meat, seafood, dairy, and vegetables you can find, and it’s little wonder people speak of Fresh-Mex food in the most salsa-licious terms!
Barrio by Mex Out makes its guacamole in-house every day using fresh avocado mashed and seasoned with lime, salt, and small amounts of red onions, jalapeno peppers, tomato and cilantro. Just the right amount of lime juice is added – key to ensuring the guacamole’s smooth texture and a slightly tangy taste. The tortilla chips too are fried and bagged in-house daily, guaranteeing that the chips are fresh, crispy, and utterly delicious.
Also made in-house daily are the salsas, using ingredients such as freshly diced tomatoes, red onions, cilantro, lime juice, salt and chillis. Some worth trying are the pico de gallo and the unique mango and pineapple salsa. And fresh-caught snapper is used in the ceviche and salad.
Many Mex Out favourites are on the menu, including the burrito wraps, burrito rice bowls, tacos and salads. The restaurant offers plated dishes, starters, bar snacks, tortas, and desserts such as the Chocolate and Chilli Brownie, for sharing. There are vegetarian options and a breakfast menu that’s available until 3pm everyday.
Apart from refreshed decor, the culinary team brings to the table a range of delectable Mexican-style dishes.

Hot on the heels of the popular halal-certified FIX Cafe, The Food Explorer F&B Group has just released the newest addition to their brand of casual eateries. Here comes FIX Grill, a casual mediterranean grill concept.
Built on the same promise as FIX Cafe, FIX Grill offers “Original Handmade Goods” of the edible kind and sets itself apart with a few choice touches.
The kitchen’s attention to detail can be seen in its range of creative appetisers, each component carefully put together to achieve a harmony of flavours in each dish. One such appetiser is the Watermelon and Prawn Salad. The watermelon cubes in the salad are first compressed, concentrating and enhancing the sweetness of each morsel, before being topped with contrasting flavours of crumbled feta, crunchy almonds and poached prawns and finished with a honey lemon verbena dressing.
Another appetiser not to be missed is the Hokkaido Scallops on Quinoa. These plump scallops are sweet & juicy and lend a delicious flavour to the bed of quinoa and grilled corn it sits on, perfectly complemented with a homemade romesco sauce.
Coming with a group of friends? The Assorted FIX Grill Platter of Skewers makes a great dish for sharing. This is no ordinary platter of meat cubes, expect creative items like Greek Beef Keftedes skewers, Lamb Moussaka skewers, Chicken Tsukune Yakitori skewers and Homemade Prawn & Fish Cake skewers, all grilled to perfection and served with a delicious homemade pumpkin mash and potato crisps.
There is a good selection of mains with sufficient variety to suit any palate. Pasta lovers can choose between the vegetarian Primavera Pasta, Seafood Pasta in a light broth or a hearty Homemade Beef Lasagna.
Meat lovers will delight in the Bone-in Beef Shortribs, slow-cooked for 24 hours to achieve a succulent texture and delicious beefy flavour. Or the Slow-Roasted Half Chicken which is tender, juicy and served with a porcini cream sauce.
Seafood lovers have not been missed with a FIX Lobster Roll featuring chunks of meat from a whole lobster tail in a creamy mayonnaise in a buttery soft homemade brioche bun. The Pan-seared Salmon on Wild Rice also makes for a great kid-friendly dish.
A perfect accompaniment to the dishes from the grill, FIX Grill also offers a range of Handcrafted Sodas made from fresh fruits and herbs. Take your pick from Strawberry & Sweet Basil, Pineapple & Passionfruit, Ginger & Lime or Kiwi & Mint, all refreshing in taste and delightfully colourful.
& why is a new cafe inspired by the delicatessens of New York.
& why aims to diversify the available styles of cuisines that are Halal in Singapore, as up till only recently, the selection has been quite limited to mostly regional culinary offerings. The food and drinks they serve are all Halal. Everything is prepared the Halal way and they are fully Muslim-owned.
It is called & why... as a play on New York's initials and the ellipsis are there for you to continue it with your own ideas. It is to signify an interaction between the cafe and you, a two-way street.
& why serves cuisine that is premium on the palate yet filling and fulfilling for the appetite, such as sandwiches and salads. The mocktails and brewed coffee at & why... are also refined and cater to delicate tastes. All their breads and pastries are baked in-house by their chefs.
Cafe's signature dishes include Asparagusto & Pastrami: Layers of beef pastrami topped with grilled asparagus and melted Gruyere cheese, drizzled with red wine reduction, served on choice of baguette or Italian bread and Stripped-down Steak Sandwich: Rosemary 6oz strip loin steak with wild sautéed mushrooms, melted Gruyere cheese and drizzled with red wine reduction, served on choice of baguette or Italian bread.
Mad About Dolce: Creamy Café Dolce tainted with hazelnut chocolate bringing out its richness. Could be a favourite for those with a sweet tooth.
Ladies should enjoy the Mademoiselle drink; a watermelon base fused together with Lussory white and a dash of lemonade soda to provide a refreshing sensation.
