Super Brunch with Mexican & More at Super Loco Robertson Quay

EatPost Category - EatEat - Post Category - Eating OutEating Out

For as long as I can remember, I have been a brunch lover. When I was a kid, being able to order French toast or fancy omelets – with fruit on the side! – instead of my usual cereal was such a treat. Throughout my 20s, long, leisurely brunches were all about remedying hangovers with greasy food and hair-of-the dog cocktails like mimosas or Bloody Marys.

Nowadays with the baby, hangovers aren’t so much of a concern, but I still love indulging with yummy food I wouldn’t have time for during the week. My family and I recently tried out the new brunch menu at “Mexican Street Food” emporium Super Loco – itself the relatively new little sister restaurant to Duxton Hill staple Lucha Loco – and I can confidently say this fab resto at Roberson Quay hits the spot, mamas.

Both restaurants are helmed by Executive Chef (and Mexican native) Mario Malvaez, while Chef Jason Jones (of Melbourne’s massively popular Mamasita) helped design the menu and advises on operations.

Lucha Loco – which only serves dinner – has made a name for itself with delectable tacos, fantastically authentic margaritas, and signature dishes like elotes (Mexican street style grilled corn with mayo, chilli & cotija cheese – a definite must-try, mamas) and Chilles Rellenos. Super Loco carries that torch but takes it a step further with the brunch menu.

I was delighted to see Super Loco features not one but two varieties of my all-time brunch favourite (and onetime hangover cure) – Huevos Rancheros. The classic version ($18) features-free range eggs, veggies, guacamole and crema on a corn tortilla, while the heartier “Super Rancheros” ($20) take things up a notch with bacon, ham and cheese. I tried the latter and it was a FULL plate of food, but every element was delicious.

My husband opted for the Pulled Pork Torta ($15), a succulent sandwich served with super slaw, beans, and a unique kick of apple and habanero mayo. In the name of research we also tried the Breakfast Burrito ($18), another brunch hall of famer that’s been exceedingly difficult to find in Singapore. This super-satisfying version features juicy steak along with the requisite scrambled eggs, beans and pico de gallo.

If you prefer sweet to savoury, Super Loco’s got you covered with Fluffy Pancakes ($14) with bananas, mixed berries and agave syrup, or the healthy Quinoa & Chia Brekky Pot ($14) that comes mixed with honey, coconut milk and Greek yoghurt. Word is they’ll soon be introducing Acai bowls as well, and we kind of adored the freshly-baked churros with chocolate dipping sauce that capped off the meal.

There’s also a separate kids’ menu – our bubs was delighted with her smashed avocado toast, which was nicely seasoned with lime and perfectly ripe avocados.

Super Loco also shines on the beverage front, as you might expect. Besides the full range of brunch-friendly cocktails (love their twist on the Bloody Mary, the “Bloody Maria”, that replaces vodka with tequila), they’ve also added in fresh juices; delicious, healthy smoothies made with almond milk and coconut water; and freshly-brewed Allpress coffee that’s currently taking the world’s coolest cafes by storm.

Super Loco doesn’t take reservations (except for groups of 8 and above), but when we visited the restaurant was pleasantly full yet no one had to queue for a table. Definitely a perk of a 200+ seat restaurant that emphasises efficient turnover.

I loved that families seated at the bar could peacefully co-exist with big groups of 20-somethings boozing on pitchers of margaritas. Throw in the colourful, open-air atmosphere (for our money, with its riverside breezes and family vibe, Robertson Quay just might be the best brunch location in Singapore), and you’ve got yourself a fairly perfect little brunch set-up with great people-watching, mama!
