Jalapeno in Tostada

Jalapeño poppers have been one of the most popular Southwestern dishes since the early 1970s. At CALI, we continue the tradition with our cheesy jalapeño poppers – a dream snack for Tex-Mex foodies in Singapore.

Why our chef recommends it

These cheesy jalapeno poppers are delightfully deep-fried chunks – hollowed out and stuffed with cream cheese, Monterey Jack, and mozzarella. Served in tostada – it comes with mouth-watering avocado mango salsa, guacamole, and sour cream. And, of course, you get crunchy nachos to go with our fresh jalapeno poppers.

About Chef Anand

Chef Anand’s culinary journey started when he was 14 years old. Due to his mother’s health conditions, he had to help out by cooking three meals a day for his family. However, what began as responsibility turned into a fierce passion as Anand became eager to learn new cooking skills. So, he worked for a Chinese food stall in his neighbourhood. And he became renowned for his culinary prowess as the customers eagerly asked him to cook for their private parties. From thereon, it was clear that becoming a chef was his calling. Anand then completed a Hotel and Catering Management diploma course in Chennai and immediately worked as a management trainee for the Oberoi brand for one and a half years. During this time, he understood the finer nuances of the continental cooking style. He also got the opportunity to work in Oman to cook daily for the staff working on the oil rigs, where once again, he picked up new skills.

Finally, when Singapore came calling, our dear Chef Anand was ready to answer! Ever since he joined the CALI brand, our restaurants have mastered the fusion flavors of global cuisine. As we bring our guests and diners together through our food, Anand makes sure that every dish speaks to them and hits all the right notes.

“We plan our menu in such a way as to satisfy a majority of the tastebuds. That’s why I focus on creating the world of modern European fusion cuisine on every single plate.”  - Chef Anand
