Jewel Changi Airport is a food heaven with multi-cuisines including the Mexican Restaurant, Tonito Latin American Kitchen, located next to Putien.
Characteristic of Mexican food are spicy, robust, intense, sourish and these can be experience in the dishes served at Tonito. Begin the meal with Ceviche TONITO ($28). Consisting of Japanese baby scallops, Octopus, Crabmeat and Fried Calamari in Smoked Aji Amarillo Tiger’s Milk with citrus and spicy and the crisp crowned on the dish complemented the ingredients perfectly.
Alternatively, opt for the Mexican Ceviche ($28) with Octopus, Japanese Baby Scallops, Crabmeat, Pico de Gallo, Limes, Guacamole, Crispy Corn Tortilla. Less sourish but spicier than the above. Equally enjoyable.
Fans of Tortilla, can opt of the either the Pork Tacos ($16) and/or Beef Quesadillas ($16). In the former, Crispy Pork Belly and Sausage, Caramelised Onion, Chipotle Mayo Aioli sat on the Soft Corn Tortilla. Diners can opt for other proteins options; fish ($18), beef ($18) and chicken ($16). As for the latter, Marinated Beef, Coriander Aioli, Avocado Puree, Melted Cheddar Cheese wrapped in Crispy Flour Tortilla.

Rice which is also a staple in Mexico hence not to be missed is the flavourful, complex flavoured Latino Seafood Rice. Or the Fish Moqueca, similar to the Indian Fish Curry but less spicy.
