Super Loco is a new super fun restaurant bar serving Mexican street food and more. Situated at the picturesque riverside locale of Robertson Quay, the sexy sister of Duxton Hill’s Lucha Loco looks like a good time place and is. Super Loco is helmed by Lucha Loco’s head chef Mario Malvaez, who is from Mexico City.
The bar features cocktails as well as non-alcoholic drinks commonly found on the streets of Mexico, such as Agua Frescas (fresh fruit cocktails) and Horchata (a rice and cinnamon drink). For the tequila aficionado, there is a portfolio of 100% blue agave tequilas and mezcals.
Main courses on the dinner menu include Octopus ceviche, Corn tortilla stuffed with chipotle-marinated chicken and the Grilled skirt steak rubbed with Ancho chili. Besides a range of tacos and quesadillas, elotes (Mexican style grilled Ccorncrn), tuna tostadas with chili-mayo and cactus salad are a few of the interesting items.
We tried their Crab Tostada ($16), Beef Cheek Taco ($12) and Chicken Quesadilla ($12). Their servings are pretty small; so a person may need to order more than one item or order the sides such as Frijoles (beans) or Mexican Rice ($8).
The Tostada (Mexican fried tortilla) was well done and was delightful. The braised beef cheek taco with chipotle salsa was fine although we thought the spicy sauce was slightly overwhelming. The Chicken quesadilla with coriander and serrano chilli was also quite spicy but enjoyable.
The must try dessert is the Super Churros ($12). The golden brown and crispy churros dusted with cinnamon were served with chocolate, orange and mezcal sauce. The churros were absolutely delicious.
Super Loco’s interior design uses colours, festival lighting, hand written typography and street posters to create a Mexican street festival atmosphere. The attentive and chirpy staff contributed to the happy and festive mood.
Super Loco, which just opened in August 2014, is becoming the new fashionable place where the beautiful set likes to be seen. The place gets filled up very quickly and, we understand, becomes very crowded as it gets later. So if you are going there for dinner, it would be advisable to go early.
Super Loco serves decent authentic Mexican food and drinks in a happy relaxed environment. It is easy to have a good time there. Super Loco at Robertson Quay is a great new alternative for a casual meal with the family, after office drinks or even a late night Margarita with that special Senorita.
