Super Loco, Robertson Quay

On day 2 of Chinese New Year, we took a break from pineapple tarts and loaded up on Mexican food at Super Loco. The entire Robertson Quay area was fairly quiet till you reached Super Loco, which was brimming with chatter and noshing.

The food at Super Loco is decent though I will say, the bar in Singapore for Mexican food is pretty and sadly low. Having tasted the food. I am surprised by how popular this place is. Then again, 80% of the crowd were expats so... maybe they are just really really homesick or worried about Trump's wall.

Ham & cheese quesadilas for the kids, which is usually a safe bet but these were a wee bit lifeless.

You must order a portion of the Esquites (grilled corn kernels, cotija cheese, with a moreish lime mayo)! And if you really love corn like I do, order one for yourself.

The Super Huevos Rancheros was a handsome plate consisting of cheese quesadilla, baked black beans, sunny-side eggs, tomato salsa, guacamole and sour cream. This dish needed some crunch fator in my opinion, but KW enjoyed it.

I preferred the Chilaquiles, which came with crispy totopos, fried free-range egg, smoked bacon lardons, Monterey jack, salsa roja, black beans, pickled shallots. I love the crunchiness and thiness of the totopos, but most of the chips under the salsa weere soggy by the time we got to them. Sad.
