Food For Now: Super Loco Group celebrates Christmas 2021, ‘Mexmas’ style
With the holiday season just around the corner, Super Loco Group is thrilled to bestow yuletide cheer upon patrons with a festive menu: a classic roast banquet exclusive to Chico Loco for those planning a cosy home Christmas gathering, and a Mexican feast at Lucha Loco and Super Loco for those looking to paint the town red, with sharing menus tailored to intimate pairs or cosy groups from 1st to 25th December 2021.
Ham it up at Christmastime with a Smoked Maple Agave Gammon Ham, cured in a cumin and cinnamon rub, dressed with smoked olive oil or a festive roast that will have loved ones gobbling with the Traditional Herb Marinated Turkey seasoned with oregano and sage, served with classic turkey gravy. Finish off that festive turkey with a Traditional Stuffing made with aromatic oregano, sage, hearty root vegetables, multigrain bread accompanied by a serving of cranberry compote on the side.
The Ancho Roast Beef Striploin promises to cause a holiday stir around the table, served with chipotle beef jus for a unique and juicy twist. More’s the merrier with timeless classic options such as Chico Loco’s Signature Rotisserie Chicken and Rotisserie Lamb Leg, seasoned in an aromatic brine for eight hours and slow-cooked on the rotisserie for a tender smoky finish.
Enjoy some soul with festive dinner spread with classic Southern sides like the Potato Salad with Quail Eggs, creamy Mac and Cheese, or Christmas companions Roasted Brussels Sprouts, and Chipotle BBQ Roasted Pumpkin. Get a spirited conversation going with Chico Loco’s Blood Orange & Guava Margarita and Tommy Lime Margarita, made with sustainably produced Arquitecto Tequila, or Mango and Passion Fruit Frescas for little ones.
No feast is complete without dessert, so save a spot for these crowd-pleasers. Sticky Pecan Pie and rich Dark Cherry Pie finds its place at the table for Thanksgiving, while Christmas brings an iconic Chocolate Log Cake made with rich chocolate sponge, chocolate buttercream, crunchy dark chocolate pearls covered in decadent Ariaga dark chocolate cream, and a classic Christmas dessert that’s been given a Mexican spin: warm Raisin Bread Butter Pudding with Mezcal Dulce Leche. Chico Loco’s Mexmas menu is exclusively available for islandwide delivery with a pre-order of three working days before date of delivery or pick-up, from 15 November to 25 December 2021 in time for Thanksgiving.
Patrons enjoying the festivities outdoors at Super Loco and Lucha Loco can look forward to Mexmas El Loco and Head Honcho set menus across all three restaurants, built for intimate experiences for two or larger cosy groups.
Featuring special Mexican-inspired festive dishes, the menus include the Herb Crusted Turkey and Traditional Mexican Mole, juicy Agave Glazed Gammon Ham cured in cumin, agave, cinnamon glaze, served with pineapple salsa and the Fire Grilled Angus Beef Fajitas: chilli-citrus marinated beef flank steak, served with grilled vegetables, soft gluten-free white corn tortillas, guacamole, pico de gallo and chili-citrus salsa. These set menus also include a hearty entourage of classic starters, sides such as tostadas, Mexican rice, frijoles and Ensalada Rustica salad, and all-time favourite crunchy cinnamon churros and dark chocolate sauce.
Drink in the festive glow of the season with the special Red Christmas cocktail, made with a tropical twist: shaken with sustainably produced Arquitecto Blanco tequila, Machetazo Cupreta mezcal, coconut water, pineapple, orgeat syrup, ginger and cinnamon agave and sangria float. Guests at Super Loco Robertson Quay can revel in the festive atmosphere with a Christmas Spiced Mocha, brewed with dark chocolate, soy milk and generously dusted with freshly grated cinnamon.
