Hombre Cantina, Boat Quay: Tired, Casual Mexican

hombre cantina boat quay reviewIt was hard to believe that Hombre Cantina is only 2 years old: the tables and chairs were weathered, cracked, and wobbly. “Hombre” in Spanish means “bro” or “dude.” “Cantina,” I guess, means “canteen”? So I suppose the “Canteen for Bros” is deserving of the decor.

There were 5 of us, and we tried a variety (about $15 each): burrito, tacos, nachos, and quesadillas. Among the Mexican food I have had in Singapore, Hombre Cantina is my least favorite, but it wasn’t terrible. Just passable, forgettable, and boring.
