After a successful run at the Bandra and Pedder Road outlets. Loco Chino is now open at Oshiwara , This one opened in May and unlike the other branches this one is bigger , accommodates up to 35 people.
Spacious setting very clean and well-designed with a big open kitchen and a make your own wok and burrito counter.
We went for lunch one afternoon, Brightly lit space I liked the accents they have used to highlight the restaurant, Had a lot of Mexican and Oriental influences . The walls had these wonderful cut out caricatures, colorful and cute they added a fun element. Lots of ceiling hangings and Chinese wind chimes added the quirky element which lifts up the mood of the casual setting.
The staff polite and service was prompt. I have been to Loco-Chino in the past and have tried and liked the variety of Dim sum, Nachos, Burritos and Enchiladas. This time was looking forward to try the new addition from their menu “Walk the Wok”
Now this is a pretty fun concept only at their Oshiwara Outlet where they have a live wok station.
So the customer is given an option where they can customize their wok meals with an extensive rice or noodle base along with sauce and topping of their choice.
We opted for a Rice based Wok
3 Types of veggies (peppers + broccoli + baby corn)
Choice of 1 protein (tofu)
For the sauce I picked the Black Pepper Sauce
And for toppings it was crushed peanut+ spring onions
The dish was perfectly spiced and well made, The two of us couldn’t finish our portion as generous in quantity also we had no space left hence couldn’t try the noodle option.
For dessert, it was Tres Leche not very authentic, but tasted good.
The vegetarian Wok is priced at 179/- and 189/- for Non – Vegetarian. The Sea Food one is priced at 229/- Highly recommend one should try this one out.
