Rolling into Singapore in August 2017, The Lime Truck is a casual joint in PasarBella @ Suntec City that offers the flavours of Mexican street food, including their signature fresh homemade tortillas. The Lime Truck was first founded in June 2010 in Orange County, California, United States Of America, by Chef Daniel Shemtob, and it went on to win Season 2 of Food Network's The Great Food Truck Race in 2011.

Ambience at The Lime Truck is shared with the rest of PasarBella @ Suntec City, an eclectic mix of retro industrial, with low warm lighting and sturdy rustic furnishings. With eye-catching graffiti lending a splash of colourful decor, and lively music in the background, you almost feel like you're dining by the streets.

Service at The Lime Truck is completely self-service, with ordering, payment, and collection over the counter. There is usually a short wait, as staff prepare your food to order. I note they display keen product knowledge, they're familiar with preparation of dishes, and able to offer recommendations. They will also engage you in conversation.

Food at The Lime Truck is focused on Mexican street food, in particular, tacos. The make their flour tortillas and corn tortillas here on the premises, and create fresh, healthy dishes with locally sourced and organic ingredients. Taste and quality is slightly above average, and dishes are super messy to consume. Portions are sized for individuals. Prices are reasonable, budget about SGD $12 per person for a meal here.

The Nacho Chips & Lime Guac (SGD $3.90) make for a great snack. The crisp, crunchy nacho tortilla chips are so satisfiying, and the lime infused guacamole is rich, semi-chunky, semi-creamy, with lovely vegetal sweet sour flavour. Excellent dip.

The Elotes Roasted Corn (SGD $3.90) features a whole corn on the cob, light roasted till the edges are just caramelised, with a soft crunchy juicy bite and a lovely sweet smoky flavour. Dressed with lime juice, feta cheese, and thousand island sauce, which gives it a sharp zesty sour cheesy feel. Nice, but incredibly messy to eat.

The Beef Rib The Gringo Taco (SGD $4.60) features a soft chewy flour tortilla, stacked with shredded strips of slow braised beef ribs which are chewy and savoury salty in flavour, along with crunchy salty buttermilk fried onions, fresh arugula / wild rocket leaves, and sharp sour tangy horseradish sauce. Bold flavours here, very punchy.

The Grilled Baramundi Taco (SGD $4.60) features a grainy chewy corn tortilla, stacked with a good sized, boneless, lime seasoned baramundi fish fillet which is tender and sweet savoury sour in flavour, along with cool, crunchy, spicy sweet sour chipotle coleslaw, and creamy vegetal sweet sour lime infused guacamole. Feels lovely and refreshing on the palate.

The Slow Braised Pork Belly Taco (SGD $4) features a grainy chewy corn tortilla, stacked with soft and tender pulled pork belly, which has been marinated in sugar and light soy sauce, then braised for hours till it takes on a bold salty savoury flavour, along with herbal cilantro, refreshing crunchy vegetal sweet sour green pico de gallo, and a mild house chili. Tasty, but I felt the ratio of meat could have been more generous.

The Fried Chicky Taco (SGD $4.30) features a soft chewy flour tortilla, stacked with tender chunks of buttermilk battered fried chicken, which are juicy and sweet savoury in flavour, along with crunchy zesty tangy sour sweet lime and dijon mustard infused coleslaw, sharp sour juicy pickled gherkins and pickled mustard seeds, and a creamy ranch sauce. Quite satisfiying, this is possibly the easiest taco to eat.

The Cinnamon Churros (SGD $3.90) here are among the tastiest versions of this dessert. Medium thick in size, served piping hot with a light dusting of cinnamon sugar, the churros are slightly crisp on the outside, yet soft and fluffy on the inside, with a satisfiying chew. Highly recommended!
