Trendy Mexican restaurant in Al Habtoor City serving up traditional dishes and plenty of tacos
Time Out Says
The Atrium at Al Habtoor City is vying to become the go-to spot for nights out and one venue that’s certainly worth checking out is ZOCO. The impressive menu features guacamole, tacos, scallops with passion fruit, and banana leaf roasted chicken. It draws from traditional Mexican and Latin cuisine, but teasing it out of grandma’s kitchen and into a contemporary cocina. ZOCO has several tacos in its armoury and we recommend the lobster offering. Somehow the soft shells manage to withstand both the packed-in filling and its intense flavours. The salsa and “mojo de ajo” (garlic sauce) work perfectly with the lobster, at no point overpowering. The banana leaf-roasted chicken is another hit, and as it comes with baby potatoes and Argentinian chimichurri, you won’t need to order additional sides. Excellent food in a really cool venue.
