When it comes to Mexican restaurants, many places usually serve sub-standard fare, where you expect some greasy fast food option slapped onto a plate. This is where cool bar-restaurant Loca differs. Start with the house guacamole, which the waiter makes right in front of you and can adjust with a varying degree of spice, according to your taste. Their huge baskets of light, crunchy nachos, which are miles away from the heavy cardboard affair you find in UAE cinemas, are the things to dive into. For something more substantial, the seafood fajitas are another great option, with the lobster cooked to perfection. Perch on high stools and at large wooden tables amongst glass feature walls filled with empty bottles and take in the modern, exposed brick work and brushed steel decor, or watch the silent black n' white movies screened on the walls – this is a modern Mexican bar, where you’re just as likely to find dressed-up girls sipping the bar’s signature mixed drinks as much as a bunch of lads tucking into one of the midweek ribs n’ drinks deals.
