Cha Cha Cha Mexican Restaurant @ 32 Lorong Mambong, Holland Village

When I think of Mexican cuisine, Cha Cha Cha will immediately popped up in my mind. Key reason for resonating it so easily is that Cha Cha Cha holds a special memory in me.

Why is it so? I used to work as a part-time staff in the early years in 1990. Wow, time really flies. I remember vividly the couple owners, Melvin and Joyce of Cha Cha Cha back then and not forgetting a lovely colleague, Karen too. Wondering how have they been after all these years. It would certainly be great if they chance upon this blog article and get in touch with me. 😉

The restaurant remains the same except for the internal layout that have since changed. Food prices are friendly and affordable coupled with the quality too.

You cannot shy away from the usual suspects when it comes to authentic Mexican food. Else, it just don’t feel so Mexican after all. 😀

Jalapeño Rellenos

Jalapeño stuffed with cheese, battered & fried to crispy finish. This is one of those recommended authentic starter and an acquired taste dish if you enjoy the little spice and sour taste of that green chilli pepper.

Deep Fried Tapas

Chicken & beef stuffed tortillas served with sour cream, guacamole & pico de gallo. Mexican spring rolls with meat instead of vegetables fillings. Great starter before your mains.

Calamari Mexicano

Deep fried calamari served with chipotle mayo. Another power starter as well. Definitely one of the better calamari that I have had.


Grilled flour tortilla filled with melted cheese served with guacamole, sour cream & pico de gallo. You can choose from a selection of fillings or having it just with cheese. I loved mine with shredded beef.

Hard Tacos

Served with lettuce, cheese, pico de gallo with pulled pork as my desired fillings.


Rolled corn tortillas with melted cheese served with green enchilada sauce, cilantro rice & black bean. There are selection of fillings too and I like mine with pulled pork. This is something new as in the early days when I was there, pulled pork was not an option back then. Also, we use to serve it with Mexican rice (loved the tomato-rish taste) and refried bean instead of cilantro rice (refreshingly good too) and black bean.

Deep Fried Flautas

Flour tortillas served with pico de gallo, sour cream & guacamole. Bigger version of deep fried tapas. Its like spring rolls. Likewise there are options for fillings too. I loved mine with shredded chicken.

Burrito Bowl

Served in a wholesome huge flour tortilla bowl of kidney beans, cheese, sliced Jalapeño, cherry tomatoes, green salsa, black olives, cilantro rice, guacamole and sour cream. Awesome dish for sure.


Tortilla stuffed with cheese, topped with sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo & deep fried. Similarly, you can choose from a variety of fillings too and I liked mine with shredded beef. This is truly authentically Mexican and so far I have yet to see this dish offered in other Mexican restaurant here. A must order item here in my opinion.

Pollo Al Chipotle

Deep fried chicken thighs served with chipotle sauce, corn salsa & cilantro rice. One of my favourite mains for sure. The chipotle sauce just works wonder with the deep fried chicken thighs.


Beef stew topped with Jalapeño served with flour tortillas and cilantro rice. I love the tomato-rish flavoured broth, and this dish is likened to that of Mexican biriyani.

You can always try some of their desserts here too for your after meals.


Deep fried cinnamon apple pastry served with vanilla ice cream. An interesting dessert to try. 👍


Deep fried dough strips served with chocolate sauce. One of the better churros for sure.

I would strongly urge you to try if you have already not done so. 😉
