Mad Mex- Fresh Mexican Grill


This Subway-style Mexican food bar is great for fast, fresh, healthy and quality options! Their food is packed with authentic flavours, service is friendly and they have funky lights and mosaic wall hehe   

L’s chicken quesadilla was a great snack option for the cold weather! The grilled tortilla came with a filling of cheese and a choice of meat is served with salsa and sour cream, add two dollars for extra guacamole :). The sour cream to our surprise was quite thin and had a liquid consistency – perfect textured to be used as a dip hehe
Chicken Quesadilla ($8.90) extra Guacamole ($2)

J had a small pork burrito with black beans, rice, cheese, lettuce, salsa and sour cream wrapped in a piece of soft tortilla :) This was a lighter option but because of the quantity it actually got J pretty full with no room for dinner! The pork was tender and juicy, and the entire burrito was packed with flavours thanks to the authentic herbs and spices :D

Ayam Goreng 99 – Indonesian style chicken

Still craving the infamous Indonesian style chicken from Ayam Goreng 99, L and J headed off to Kingsford again with two other friends P and S.  
L, P and S all had their famous char-grilled chicken :)  The authentic Indonesian chicken was nicely marinated with a choice of breast or thigh.  It was bursting with flavor compared to your typical charcoal chicken and you could really taste that char grilled flavour. 
J tried the deep fried Javanese style chicken which was somewhat similar to the char-grilled version (it even looks the same haha, we had to ask the waiter which one is which :P). This one was probably more dry comparatively, but it’s a good sort of dry… the meat was more fluffy and lose, definitely in a good way :D 
Oh and don’t forget the ketchup sauce (not the tomato sauce haha but the sweet Indonesian soy sauce kecap manis :P) or the chili sauce that both go really nice with the chickens!
L also tried the deep fried soybean and tofu which was nicely fried with a thick batter. They were relatively plain in flavour but made as a good alternative to rice to eat with the chicken.

We also tried the Chicken satay :D which came covered in a really thick and rich peanut sauce, sweet soy sauce and deep fried shallots  :)
Chicken Satay ($8 for 5 sticks)
 For drinks, we had the avocado juice and cendol :D The avocado juice might sound really rich and filling, but it’s actually quite fresh! The mix of mocha and condensed milk made the drink more like a milkshake making it very addictive. On the other hand, the ice cendol was probably more heavy but still very good with everything in the right proportions :D
Avocado juice with Mocha, shaved ice and condensed milk ($5)
Green jelly with Palm sugar and coconut milk ($5)
