The restaurant’s concept is based on a fictitious love story between a Mexican girl and an Indian boy – you guessed it, Ms Maria and Mr Singh – whose romantic tale is told through a comic book that doubles as the menu.

Expect nothing short of surprises and memorable dishes with their menu of tapas and small plates, categorised under five headings: Love At First Bite, I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing, I Need You Now, For Wedding And Maybe A Funeral, and Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.

Highlights include the Papdi Chaat, made with crisp fried puri, sweet and sour chutneys, yoghurt and sev, Cold Curry Ceviche, Pork Vindaloo Tacos, and Gaggan’s Crab Curry.
