Lucha Loco

Lucha Loco at Duxton near Neil Road

Lucha Loco is a taqueria which has a lovely garden bar that serves Mexican food. We’ve passed by the restaurant several times whenever we go around the neighborhood and we finally decided to try their food a few weeks ago.

The hostess promptly greeted us at the door and seated us. Seating was limited to two hours as the restaurant was full and we didn’t have any reservations. I didn’t mind having limited seats since we didn’t have reservations, but it seemed like they were limiting all their customer’s stay at the restaurant that night. The service was excellent and our food didn’t take too long to arrive in between dishes.

Tostaditas de Cangrejo (Crab tostaditas with habanero oil, avocado and scallion $16)

The Tostaditas de Cangrejo or crab tostaditas arrived first and although the menu says that it serves four, I think that it only serves 2. There are four pieces but I don’t think that one piece is enough per person. The appetizer was light, refreshing and delicious. I was surprised at how I liked the dish that I was anticipating our other orders.

Taco de Carnitas (Pork belly taco with jicama and cilantro mayo $10)

The Taco de Carnitas or pork belly taco was just as scrumptious. The porky porky goodness went well with the avocado and scallion. The meat was tender and the dish was savory without being too heavy.

Quesadillas de Conchinillo (Pork quesadilla with grilled pineapple, pico de gallo & cotija cheese $18)

The Quesadillas de Conchinillo or pork quesadilla was delicious but it was not really that memorable. I liked how the dish came together but I was not as amazed as I was with the other dishes but I would still order it again.

Lucha Loco has great food, ambiance, and, more importantly, they have great service. Having an early dinner may have been a factor to the quality of their service but we would definitely love to come back at another time with our friends. This restaurant is a must try!
