Hola ! Spanish food in India? Well I have wanted to try that out in ages, but never managed that until yesterday. And Yeay! It feels good, although my next plunge with Spanish food will only have to be Spain, not India. I am sure some people out there know what I mean. We like to experiment with food, liking that comes secondary. Spanish was one cuisine I could not lay my hands on and now I am just content, because I can tick it off my wish list.
As a resident of Mumbai, there is no dearth of eating joints. But after having looked up, the options for Spanish seemed limited. The closest one to me was Poco Loco, situated at Pali – Bandra next to Totos.
To begin with, I think the name Poco Loco is so apt –which in Spanish means a little crazy. Crazy people in a crazy places. Nice! So how crazy it was ? Ambience is great and pictureholics like us found it ‘picture perfect’.
The place is well lit and is a one flooreyed place, where the stairway led to a nice cosy area upstairs. We chose to stay put up there. It can perhaps accommodate about 15 people with just about three tables.So ideally not meant for a very large group of people ;but more suited to small group of friends or couples.

'Croquetta de Mozzarella'
After which we ordered the main course. All of us being veges ,our pick was ‘ Croquetta de Mozzarella ‘. As the name suggests , it was some sort of a roll with exhuberant filling of mozzarella complemented with basil oil and tomato cheese. Definitely stunner of a dish , although I liked the stired veges with its dressing better.Personally if I had to pick again , this would’nt be my pick.
Holistically speaking, the place is fabulous , ambience is vibrant , food is not really up to mark ( dont know if Spanish food in Spain would be better ), service friendly and reasonably priced.
If given an option , hell yes I would go there again with a different group of people and try other stuff on that menu. So, ‘Buen provecho’to all J
