So last night we drove over to The Beach to attend the launch of ‘Taco Tuesdays’ at Poco Loco. For AED 129 per person, you get to feast on as much tacos’ as you wish. Pretty good way to try out what they have to offer. Traffic on Jumeirah Beach Road was jammed (as usual? everyone’s going to ladies night?), so we turned right onto The Walk (just before Noodle Room) and it was surprisingly quiet (Tip : Do that!). I would also suggest you park in the basement parking right near the Doubletree Hilton end, as the lifts that you take will take you right to Poco Loco 🙂
Not too shabby ay? Particularly liked the wallart with hidden city names of Latin America – Mexico, Chile, Panama. And oh yeah, let me know if you see Meraas’ name hidden within as well 😉
Thoughts on the tacos served for the night? Personally, the beef skirt steak with salsa roja – we did not like – bit of a strong beef smell, not sure if it was meant to be like that. Also, was told that it was lamb (my mum does not eat beef…) so I really recommend servers inform patrons properly in the future what meat was in there.
The actual lamb tacos were alright, as with the grilled chicken taco – though with all that sauce the taco shell ended up too soft and mushy (suggest to cut down on sauce?) The winner went to the soft shell crab with avocado – if you were to try just one from the ala carte menu I’ll recommend you do that.
What else did we like? The nachos served with home-made guacomole – we basically cleaned up the bowl. The churros were absolutely delicious as well. Ask them for their other home-made sauces – that green one at the bottom – a combination of tomatillos, coriander, jalapenos, onions and garlic …. – loved it.
A nice way to try out what Poco Loco had to offer. If you’re a big fan of Latin American tacos, give this deal a try on a Tuesday night. If you (like me) am not too big a fan of just tacos, pop by and just try out their ala carte menu (they are in the Entertainer as well 😉 )
To end this post, cheers to Apco for organising the event – and for the very unique giveaway!
