Expected more flavour from the spice-rubbed chicken in the quesadillas but it turned out to be pretty mild. Instead, the coriander mayo sauce was more apparent, alongside the tangy salsa and creamy guacamole. These flavours were well appreciated, but I definitely would have appreciated stronger flavours from the chicken and slightly more cheesiness.

Spicy pork chorizo and braised beef brisket in between a soft corn tortilla. A tinge of spiciness and tanginess from the combination of chipotle and red onion salsa. Personally, it felt more appetising than delicious, perhaps also because of the portion size. I’d recommend getting at least two tacos if you’re looking for a full meal (and with that get two different flavours as well for variety)!

Fried chicken rings doused in spicy sauce which had a slight sweetness and tanginess to it, Because it is simply so saucy, you can’t really get the crispness out of it. But if you’re able to, the chicken wings here are a pretty decent option for an appetiser! The spiciness really packs a punch so beware if you are unable to hold your spice.

Had a sweet ending to my dinner with churros glazed with chocolate sauce and ice cream on the side. Churros had a nice crisp texture to it, while still being soft on the inside. Although the vanilla ice cream on the side was melted, it served a good dipping sauce to enjoy your churros with.

The classic mojito infused with lychee came in a huge mason jar, but I am not complaining. A Cuban classic, you can’t not drink mojitos when you are here. In fact, Cuba Libré prides itself on offering such a wide range of mojito concoctions that you’d honestly be spoilt for choice. I went with a classic mojito, with the added option of infusing lychee. With a stick of sugar cane, you get the traditional mojito experience that is a great accompaniment with your meal.

First time at Cuba Libré and I had a refreshing good time! Coincidentally, I visited Cuba Libré on the day safe management measures eased, so it would be no secret that my night was filled with chaotic good vibes, especially with the resumption of live bands and high-spirited atmosphere. With Clarke Quay gradually being vibrant again, indeed, nature is healing.

Tried the Signature Mojito chicken upon recommendation and was generally pleased with its rather unique flavour. My experiences with chicken are often savoury, which made this interesting because of its sweet and citrus profile. Marinated with a tangy rum reduction, the saccharine tanginess really came through whilst the rum was not as apparent. Although I was hoping that the mojito essence could come through a bit more, it was overall a palatable dish that was unlike all my savoury chicken experiences! Plus points for them using boneless chicken thighs as well, so it’s not excessively dry.

If you’re looking for a place with good vibes, food, and drinks, leave your options open for Cuba Libré! Furthermore, they have 1-for-1 on Burpple Beyond for selected dishes & drinks😩

Decent chicken quesadillas though I was hoping it could’ve been more flavourful. The cheesiness in this was also not the most apparent, with the cheese being more compact and solid rather than melty. Definitely had better elsewhere, but I guess for the atmosphere and pretty affordable variety of drinks they serve, it’s a suitable place for bigger groups to hang out over drinks.

When it first came, I was taken aback with how unappetizing it looked because i expected enchilada sauce to be red in colour. Instead, I was greeted with a not-so-pleasant creamish colour. That aside, this was pretty decent, though definitely far from authentic. I believe they went for a more cheese-based sauce than spicy sauce. It could do with much more flavour and ingredients that can jazz up the plate, especially because it felt like there were only the tortilla, beef, and sauce.

Fajitas came served on a sizzling hot plate, with another whole plate on a side with the toppings — guacamole, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and cheese. Tortilla wraps were nearly placed in a cute Hard Rock paper bag. While there is joy that comes with making your own wrap, filling up with ingredients that are too your liking, it does get messy. Furthermore, with the splendid show of sizzle and heat emanating from the hot plate of steak, shrimp, peppers and onion, the flavour was ultimately still lacking in the meats. Perhaps because the steak slices and shrimps weren’t exactly simmered down in the hot plate, they remained a tad dry, completely missing out on absorbing all the juice at the bottom of the plate. A true pity that the fajitas were lacking in flavour with how presentable it looked, but it was overall a good experience!

An affordable option to get your fix of quesadillas. The quesadillas weren’t dry but I thought it was lacking a bit of savoury flavour, despite the salsa, lime Mayo, and sour cream. Perhaps the chicken itself was lacking a bit of juiciness. Nonetheless, for the price I do think this was a decent place to get quesadillas, view and all. Also, it’s appropriate for sharing. However, if I am gonna be eating alone, I see myself just getting my fix from stuff’d, which has crispier tortilla wraps and juicier, flavourful meats.

This is not the most aestherically pleasing photo, but I dream about this almost everyday.. Imagine crunchy, soft, cheesy, all in one, and then a burst of flavour in your mouth once u dip your birria quesatacos in the consomme. The birria quesatacos were amazing in its own right, but dipping it in the consomme makes it a whole new world — juicy with a whole new level of flavour. This was a whole lot of spice-y, smoky, and savoury tingling on your tongue. I could not get enough of this.

It’s Quesadilla Night! This was big time delicious. While it was definitely on the oilier side, the tortilla shell was well seared. The cheddar cheese was melted to perfection, oozing with every bite. Messy, but not a mess I mind. I preferred the chicken quesadilla, because of how the chicken chunks itself were well marinated, adding an additional layer of flavours to the dish. One might find it too complex for the tastebuds - but perhaps that day, I was looking for a burst of flavour.
Nonetheless, the beef was absolutely fantastic as well. Slow cooked marinated beef that was tender. No surprises, it went great with whatever that was in the tortilla.
Service & ambience were top notch at Tonito’s. The staff were friendly, and the colourful decor naturally influences a lively atmosphere. They serve you different levels of spicy Mexican sauce which we very much appreciated. The spicy kick served to provide me a complete, tantalising quesadilla experience.
