Wildly popular in Australia, thanks to its customisable menu made from the freshest quality ingredients, Mad Mex has powered into Singapore with its first restaurant in Singapore that recently opened at Marina Bay Financial (MBFC) Tower 3.
With more than 70 locations now operating in Australia and New Zealand, the dedicated Mad Mex team has served up more than four million burritos across both countries in the last 12 months. The success of the group has spurred the new international expansion and coincides with Mad Mex’s new 2019 brand refresh and positioning, ‘Fresh Fuel For Life’, which places arevived focus on healthy living and supporting people in living life to the fullest.
The latest move comes after the owner of 4FINGERS bought a 50% stake in Mad Mex last year. The brand is looking forward to more openings in Singapore and Malaysia, where its arrival could fill a gap in the food industry with honest, healthy ‘fast food’.
With Mad Mex there is no ‘burrito-ing’ round the bush; only fresh, ethically-sourced ingredients are used in its food every day. So pure and simple, the recipes used are available online along with a nutritional calculator for full transparency into what customers are eating. Customary Mexican favourites – Burrito, Naked Burrito, Tacos, Nachos, Quesadilla, Grande MeltTM and Ensalada – are served and customers are encouraged to customise their meals according to their dietary requirements – anyone can eat at Mad Mex.
Founder and CEO Clovis Young of Mad Mex sums up the ingenuity of Mad Mex’s humble but revolutionary ethos, “I started Mad Mex in 2006, because I absolutely love Mexican food, and I wanted to share that love with all of Australia, and the world. I wanted my customers to get a fast meal with homemade quality, made entirely of real ingredients. That means the fewest preservatives, oils and sugars – while always big on taste. You should never have to choose between a quick meal and quality healthy food.”
Guzman Y Gomez serves traditional Mexican flavors featuring hearty proteins resting on fragrant seasoned rice and zesty salsa. Go and try out their burrito & nachos at their outlets islandwide with the newest set to open at Orchard Gateway very soon.

Inspired by the craft beer and fresh seafood culture of San Diego, Draft & Craft is a unique restaurant-bar concept that serves authentic Southern Californian comfort food and specializes in craft beer, unique cocktails and artisanal cheeses.
Draft & Craft was conceptualized and founded by a couple that moved here from San Diego, who wanted to bring the freshness and easiness of Baja-influenced So-Cal dining to Singapore. The essence of So-Cal dining is fresh ingredients and is usually accompanied with a craft beer or cocktail in a casual, breezy setting. “Draft” refers to the draft gourmet beers on tap, and “Craft” refers to the craft food, cocktails and artisanal cheeses offered.
Draft & Craft serves up “Baja-style” Mexican food, which is a popular staple in Southern California because of its emphasis on fresh produce and seafood with it being typically lighter on the stomach when compared to traditional Mexican fare. Their food is mostly made from scratch, with a few components carefully sourced and selected by their chef. Highlights of the menu include epicurean versions of grilled cheese sandwiches and tacos such as the Baja Fish which consists of beer-battered and fried fish fillet, pico de gallo, fresh shredded cabbage and homemade white sauce enveloped in a warm and soft flour tortilla. In addition, Draft & Craft hopes to introduce the concept of beer and cheese pairings. The effervescence and varying flavors of different beers serves to complement a wide selection of cheeses as they bring out the subtle notes in one another. The gourmet cheese-tasting platter, as well as individual cheese wedges offered on the menu as supplemental beer pairings, were handpicked by their cheese consultant, who owns several cheese bars in Portland, Oregon.
Driven by his passion in craft beer, their beers are lovingly curated by the owner who is a beer connoisseur and home-brewer himself. Some of the offerings on tap include Stone IPA, Rogue Dead Guy Ale, Prairie Saison, and Anderson Valley Summer Solstice. The bottled beer list is constantly expanding and includes a good selection of IPAs, Trappist ales, stouts, porters and ciders.
For wine lovers, they have a selection of white and red wines carefully selected from a small and vibrant wine supplier. The wines offered are made from carefully tended vines, with minimal intervention in the cellar that is looked after by dedicated wine growers. The results are apparent- balanced, delicious and interesting wines which pair well with food. Cocktail drinkers can also choose from the craft cocktail menu that was specially concocted by the owner. The menu places a strong emphasis on fresh ingredients, such as “A Summer’s Day” which consists of champagne, elderflower liquor, and fresh cucumber honey water made from scratch daily.
Housed in a 1,000 square foot venue on the bustling Circular Road, in the heart of the Central Business District, Draft & Craft boasts an intimate setting with a capacity of 80 beer-loving patrons. Over at Draft & Craft, they hold the belief that the devil is in the details and they spare no effort in creating a great experience for you.
The restaurant provides seating for 35 seated indoors and up to 15 at its alfresco area. This outlet is designed in an express format to cater to the busy breakfast and lunch traffic in the area, providing quick meals and takeaways for the business crowd, without skimping on taste and nourishment.
