This year’s winner of Time Out’s Best Bar Food Award was thrilled, yet somewhat humble, about carrying off the prize that went to Traders Vic’s in 2010. When we asked him why LOCA won the award, Ben McBride replied with a cheerful grin on his face, ‘We’re probably better than everyone else’.
The bar at Jumeirah Marine Beach Resort & Spa that boasts rustic décor and an extensive listing of beer from all over the world is not just about tasty beverages. Renowned for its great take on traditional Mexican food, LOCA’s menu includes both ever-popular fajitas and something as exotic as corn husk tamales – possibly even better than those you buy from the street vendors of Latin America.
