A bar known for serving from a refurbished shipping container is spreading its Tex-Mex joy to Singapore’s famed shopping mecca.

Chimi’s will bring its flavors and booze – sans container – to a 49-seat bar in Somerset splashed in hot pink and turquoise located along the discovery walk at 313@Somerset on March 9.

This will be the brand’s second outlet after its One Marina Boulevard location, which is centered around a refabbed modular container. Chimi’s belongs to the same Singapore brand that owns Chimichanga restaurants in Little India and Holland Village.

While the new location eschews shipping container chic, its lively colors and upcycled steel beam roof make for style that’s still on point. The interior includes furniture made with refurbished metal legs from discarded tables. 

On the menu, customers will find Mexican dishes catering to a Singaporean palate with classics such as Quesadillas, Loaded Nachos and Golden Churros. Its specialty ice cream will come in Mexican-inspired flavors such as Lime Margarita, Chocolate Sriracha and Mango Tajin.

Of course, booze won’t be omitted. There will be margaritas in five flavors: Classic Lime, Basil Mint, Strawberry, Mango Peach and Coco Cinnamon, as well as a variety of locally brewed craft beers.
