Arriba! Cinco De Mayo, a popular Mexican celebration is almost upon us (to clarify that’s May 5th, incase your spanish isn’t that great). This popular Mexican holiday comesmerates the day the Mexican Army managed to pull off an unlikely victory over the French. Today, it’s an excuse to chow down on Mexican food and cheers with tequila. In order to pay homage to this holiday, we’ve put together 6 awesome spots to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Singapore:
