I was wondering where my sister was dragging me when we were walking up and down the steep streets of Surry Hills, but if I knew she was taking me to delicious Mexican at El Loco, I probably would have complained a little less on the way there.
How cute is the table number! It is pretty big though.
Tacos ($5.00). One of the perks of coming early is getting piping hot food at a fast pace.
Al Pastor – spit roasted pork, pineapple salsa. The pork was mediocre but the salsa was amazing.
Carne Asada – lemongrass beef, salsa verde, queso. My favourite of the bunch, I didn’t know how I was going to like the lemongrass because I thought it was going to be overwhelming but it went so well together.
Camaron – prawn, salsa verde, pico de gallo. Prawns weren’t very juicy and most of the flavour came from the salsa verde.
Pollo taco ($5.00) – chicken, sweet corn salsa. More spicier than the other tacos but the corn was very nice to balance things out a little.
El hot dog ($9.00) – grilled pork frankfurt served on a soft bun with pickled jalapenos, pico ge gallo, mayonnaise and cheese. All the deliciousness of a hot dog topped with lots of finely grated cheese with the goodness of pickled jalapenos.
We were there pretty early so it was easy to take a pick from all the cute seats around.
A simple layout- find a seat, order at the bar, go back to your table with a giant cactus and a friendly face will bring your food as well as disposing all of the mess after you’re done.
I really enjoyed the food here and at such bargain prices, I can see why it filled up so quickly as we were leaving.
