One of the most enjoyable foods to eat, has got to be the taco.
It’s so simple yet so good, which probably explains why it’s considered to be one of the best foods to eat when drunk.
Is this why they serve alcohol with tacos?
In Singapore, there’s an increasing number of Mexican restaurants and a crowd favourite is Lucha Loco.
Going Loco For Tacos
Located on 15 Duxton Hill, Lucha Loco is a casual Mexican cocina (kitchen) and bar, serving up great Mexican food and tequilas (of course).
It first opened in 2012 and today, it is known as one of the few places in Singapore for great Mexican fare.
The coolest part of this restaurant has got to be the outdoor garden seating.
Beautifully decorated, yet still spacious enough to accomodate large groups, it’s almost as if you’re dining with fairies.
Now, for the food.
They serve up tacos and quesadillas, as well as a wide variety of other authentic Mexican snacks and sides.
Some of the favourites are the Baja Fish Tacos ($10), the vegetarian Corn & Artichoke Tacos ($8), and the Cangrejo Tacos ($16), which uses buttermilk fried soft-shell crab.
Lucha Loco has seasonal flavours for their tacos too, so do check their Facebook page for any updates on exclusive taco creations.
Their most recent creations were for the Trump-Kim summit.
If you’re looking for something easier to munch on, try their Crab Tostadas ($17), which uses blue swimmer crab meat, salted egg sauce, and crispy chicken skin. Mmm….
The good thing about Lucha Loco is that they’re also vegetarian-friendly, with many vegetarian options available on the menu.
For dessert, if you’re not getting the Churros ($14), were you really at Lucha Loco?
For drinks, Happy Hour takes place from 5pm to 7pm on weekdays, with discounts on their frozen lime, piña margarita, kirin draught, corona, cava, house wines, gin, rum, and house vodka.
Lucha Loco is a must-visit if you’re looking for an authentic Mexican dining experience.
Do remember to call in advance to make reservations if you’re going in a large group.
