A Margarita History - 1988 to present
With an unyielding passion for exciting, yet clean and authentic flavours, founder and owner and chef-to-date, Andy Yap, is the brainchild behind Singapore's first Margarita's restaurant. Along with his wife, Carol Yap, Margarita's grew from its humble beginning at Faber Drive in 1988 (pictured left), and rapidly expanded to the East Coast, and subsequently blossomed as a hidden gem at Dempsey Hill.
So how do we do, what we do, for so long?
Our concept is simple. It's where the best of Mexican cuisine is served - no pretence. It is cooking with the basics, like using the best and freshest ingredients available to always bring forth exciting, homemade flavours. We believe that there is beauty in authenticity.
Our restaurant offers a memorable dining experience in a pleasant and lively ambience. It is a social refuge for friends, families, lovers, first-dates, and acquaintances. Whether you're looking to satisfy your cravings, yearning to listen to great (and occasionally live) music, in need of an exotic Margarita, or just a couple of shots and lime wedges - we've got you covered!
We try to take the mystery out of good Mexican cuisine to allow our guests an honest appreciation for it. We want to create a sense of adventure, and to redefine personal preferences. Taste is an acquired art and the quality in food cannot be measured...but it can certainly be mastered!
We definitely hope that our guests would continue to enjoy what we do, and that is serving the best authentic, Mexican cuisine!
