PocoLoco

Despite residing in the West Side for such long period, I only get to know of PocoLoco through words of mouth from my friends and colleagues. This is truly a hidden find located at the heartlands of Level 2 Snow City just beside Science Centre.

Level 2 of Snow City
The ambiance was causal and welcoming with simple furnishings laid out in the dining area under the warm lighting.

We had Carpaccio (Chef Recommendation) as our starters. It was quite appetizing with thinly sliced beef tenderloin garnished with balsamic vinegar and a dash of truffle essence. Together with the rocket salad and cherry tomatoes topped with Parmesan Cheese shavings, it was addictive.

Carpaccio - $13.50
Mushroom soup was one of the chef's recommendations too. Like that the soup was warm and taste was pleasing to stomach without being too creamy.

Zuppa di Funghi - $5
My friend had tried the Mushroom soup and decided to order their tomato soup. Initially I thought it was just normal tomato soup till it was served where I get to see the clams in it. Tomato seafood soup was tangy and has a mild seafood taste, it was a well balance of taste without one another's taste overpowering each other.

Zuppa di Pesce - $7.90
We was craving for Vongole pasta all along and hoping that this will be our fix. The pasta noodles were al dente, firm and yet having the springy texture. Altogether it was a great pairing up with these clams in white sauce.

Vongole Bianco - $12.90
Some of the menu are seasonal and we had the Roasted Iberico Pork in Brown Sauce as one of our mains. The mean was well seasoned and roasted, coupled with some potatoes, corns and french beans as the side. It was a great pairing in the brown sauce and meat was fork tender. Recommended!

Roasted Iberico Pork in Brown Sauce - $22

Yummy!
We are kind of too use to the usual chocolate lava cake, hence we decided to order the Matcha Lava which is also one of their Chef Recommendations. Having desserts make one happy. Upon serving, you can whiff the strong aroma from the Matcha Cake. For those who love to take videos for the social media, this is a very good chance! As soon as you cut open the cake, the lava starts flowing profusely. Well, having the lava alone is simply for the sweet tooth, I will say it is best to go with the vanilla ice cream if you don't really take sweet stuff.

Matcha Lava - $10.90


To be honest, I love the ambiance and settings of the restaurant. Too bad we were driving and couldnt order their home brew alcohol. I bet the next time round when we are back, we will want to try the beers and not forgetting other chef recommended dishes that were left on the menu.
