Platypus (Katong) - Mexican with a Modern Twist

Went to Platypus Cantina at Katong to try their Mexican fare. Love the fun ambience and decor, like this cute Mexican hat light.

BTW we spotted a lady having dinner outside with her pet parrot. It later perched on her head and she cycled away. 

Our starter dish, the Nachos Corne Asada ($15.90)

A great appetiser to share, bursting with zesty flavours and topped with small slices of beef. Only gripe? The avocado was watery and the portion small. More guacamole please.

While waiting for your food to be served, you can try the Truth or Dare cards meant to liven up the conversation. I'd imagine these can be fun for people who are here to drink!

Pulled Pork Burger ($16.90)

Tender, well marinated pulled pork with jalapenos. Fries and burger bun nothing to shout about but it's an okay burger. 

Katong Burger ($17.90)

This burger is too cute with a baby burger on top! The daddy burger has double smoked bacon, lettuce, cucumbers, tomato, queso (a cheese), Monterey Jack (another cheese). The salsa or Pico De Gallo was great too! My dad really enjoyed this burger.

Soft Tacos (Battered Fish) 
Taco Tuesday: 2 for $4.90

You can choose from Soft Wheat Tacos or Corn Tacos, which are the harder types. There are lots of fillings to choose from, including Shrimp Camarones, Bulgogi Beef, Quinoa and Tofu, Duck Confit and Spicy Crab.

We ordered Battered Fish. Didn't like the texture of the fish though, kinda slimy inside. Maybe we'll try the corn tacos next time! 


Platypus has a large extensive menu with drool-worthy photos. Each dish is fun, inspiring and full of flavour. Pair these with a drinks menu, and you are bound for a fun night out. 

There's a large dining interior, bar counters and bar tables if you prefer to take in the people and sights outside while having a drink. Versatile! 

Enjoyed our time here! I've actually been here before, but only for drinks. The other time we dined at Platypus Kitchen, which is located at Bugis. That was a fun meal too :)
