Choice of dishes: carbon-conscious meals, Mediterranean dishes and Easter treats
Alongside Earth Day on April 22, Mexican hotel group Super Loco Group kicked off its first Loco Earth Month to promote a carbon-conscious lifestyle.
An Earth Month menu at its three restaurants features dishes made with ethical, low-carbon ingredients from sustainable local or regional sources.
Opt for the four-course dinner menu ($80 per person), which begins with Garden Flautas – crispy spinach and herb tortillas stuffed with quinoa and goat cheese – served with a sikil pak dip made from pumpkin seeds. excess pumpkin, lime sour cream and pico de gallo cactus.
Next is the plant-based Fable Al Pastor Taco. The taco is usually filled with pork, but here it’s made with Australian plant-based food brand Fable Food, known for its meat alternative made with shiitake mushrooms.
I love the different elements of the taco – from the meat-like texture of slow-braised Fable “meat” that reminds me of lion’s mane mushrooms and crispy kale to roasted corn and watermelon radish.
The main course includes barramundi from the local Kuhlbarra fishery, with each restaurant offering a different version.
At Super Loco Customs House, I enjoy pan-roasted barramundi with crispy skin on a herb salad, vibrant salsa verde and corn.
At the Robertson Quay branch, fish comes with chopped jalapenos, piquillos and grilled corn salad, while sister brand Lucha Loco’s seared barramundi is served with arroz (rice) cauliflower and roasted seeds. ‘amaranth.
The meal ends with Pomegranate Tres Leches (three milks), which includes a layer of milk sponge cake, coconut cream and tangy pomegranate jelly served over a charcoal crumble and tres leches sauce.
Dishes are also available à la carte.
