Poco Loco, Latin American restaurant is ideally located in JBR. It provides beautiful beach views and liveliness of JBR walk.
We went at the lunch time last week and preferred outside dining as the weather in Dubai last week was still comfortable even in afternoon. Traditional serving styles and great taste are the highlights of the restaurant.
Drinks & Mocktail menu has amazing blends of flavors. We had Mint Lemonade & Moctezuma, delicious combination of banana , passion fruit, orange & pineapple.
Retaining its traditional Mexican serving style, & much interesting was the making of Guacamole with freshly cut Avocados, finely chopped Tomatoes, Onions, Coriander and Lemon juice. This was amazing & at the same time healthiest blend to start your first course at lunch.
The manager did a wonderful job, placed pestle & mortar on our table prepared everything from scratch. The simple recipe is so delicious to eat with home-made Tortilla Chips.
We got to try all veg & non-veg stuffings in Tacos. Each stuffing is distinctive in flavor. The variety which we had is all recommendable to try.
