“Genuinely Exotic”

Piedra Negra Mexican Restaurant
Ranked #133 of 1,006 Restaurants in Johor Bahru
Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 April 2014

It's not the place that exactly matters when it comes to authentic Mexican food. Located in one of the busiest strip malls in JB with minimal parking space available, it's one of those particulars where you could label as a hidden gem.

The nachos and guacamole was a heavenly bliss alongside its fillings of mushroom and chicken. I loved their quesadillas which wasn't overly done, but just with that tinge of touch that reminds one that it could still more than qualify for Mexican. And that's what you ought to be expecting.

The inner decor of the restaurant was made to look rugged and ramshackle, but in a way that doesn't announce deplorability but tells of old wonders and regularly used wonders. If you're alongside town and want something spicy to pop with in your taste buds, go for Piedra Negra!

The decor is really cool and they open daily for lunch and dinner daily. Closed on Sunday. The food is prepared fresh and really good and the prices are reasonable.

A branch of Piedra Negra Singapore, this casual, homely and warm Mexican restaurant is located at Tmn Nusa Bestari, which is about 30-45 minutes from JB city centre. Mexican restaurants are really rare in Johor Bahru, so I'm glad we finally have one that serves delicious Mexican food. They have the basic Mexican dishes like the nachos, tapas, enchilladas, churos etc and their cocktails are awesome too. Overall I rate them 8/10. Their staffs are very friendly and helpful too. And if you go on your birthday, you get to put on their sombrero too. Certainly a pleasant dining experience :)
