La Mexicana, Terrace at Hock Choon

It’s always heartening to see a restaurant striving to provide a great dining experience for their customers. La Mexicana, owned by Mexican Chef Carmela and her husband Stephen, opened up at Terrace at Hock Choon in late 2012, has been fulfilling the void for authentic Mexican food, serving locals and expats alike.

No, I’m not the ambassador of Zespri Kiwifruits….
