Hot Buttermilk Chicken I’m back at Chico Loco for dinner as there is a one-for-one deal on Burpple Beyond for mains, sides and drinks😃 The Hot Buttermilk Chicken ($13) is pretty good - the fried chicken is huge, crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. It goes well with the slaw, jalapeño, pickled cucumber and hot sauce mayo between two pillowy toasted sesame buns. The Roast Vegetables ($6) consist of roasted beets, carrots and cauliflower topped with a creamy cashew salsa sauce. Love how wallet-friendly and yummy this is:)
Spit-Roasted Chicken My colleague and I decided to pop by Chico Loco for lunch since we have not tried it before. The Chicken Combo Lunch Special comes with spit-roasted chicken ($23 for half, $16 for quarter), coleslaw and a choice of fries or rice. The roasted chicken is surprisingly good - it is flavourful, tender and juicy, and it goes very well with the creamy and slightly acidic Chimichurri yoghurt sauce that we picked from a selection of 5 sauces. The coleslaw consists of green papaya, cabbage, macadamia, mint and chilli, and for some reason, it has a garlicky kick and reminds me of chicken rice. The fries go very well with the spicy chipotle mayo dip as well. We also ordered Chips & Guac ($7) to share, which came with a generous portion of guacamole. Overall, the atmosphere of the fast-casual Mexican restaurant is great, the food is good and the prices are reasonable. Till the next visit!
Hot Mexican Mocha One of my fav versions of mocha ever bc this is a real unique rendition of the drink 🤩!! Slightly spicy n v chocolatey, I rly love the balance of flavours n gotta say Chico is pretty generous w the amt of dranks too. Would order again

Inside Scoop
✨The Refinery 🇸🇬✨⁣ ⁣ How about some Wagyu Tartare ($15) and a bowl of grilled salmon don ($12) for you? 😍⁣ ⁣ I was pleasantly surprised with the wagyu tartare as they added satay sauce to the tartare. Interesting choice of sauce and it elevated the flavor of the beef. 😌😌 However, my lunch buddy didn’t like the satay sauce so it really depends on your taste preferences. 🤪🤪⁣ ⁣ As for the grilled salmon don, no complaints about the grilled salmon and rice but would prefer more sauce/seasoning on the rice. ☺️☺️ ⁣ ⁣ 🍽 is at 115 King George's Ave, 02, 208561⁣ ⁣ 🕰 Mon-Thurs 12-3pm / 6-11pm ⁣ 🕰 Fri 12-3pm / 6-1am ⁣ 🕰 Sat 11-4pm / 6-1am ⁣ 🕰 Sun 11-4pm ⁣ ⁣ Overall Rating: 3.5/5⁣ Things that I loved: The ambience & pocket friendly prices. 😌🤩⁣ ⁣ #burpple ⁣
Iced Mocha Can’t really go too wrong with some chocolate coffee to usher in the weekend, it’s Friday Friday gotta get down on Friday
An oldie but goodie 🤤 Being around for some 4-5 years now says heaps, considering the volatility and high turnover rates of local cafes; and that @therefinerysg’s signature Refinery Gyudon’s been on the menu since day 1 shows just how reliably good this is. Each grain bowl comes topped with truffle shimeji mushrooms, tare marinated beef, pickled daikon, garlic chips, and an onsen egg. Very simple ingredients, with flavours and textures that balances out, it’s essentially a more modern take on the classic time-proven gyudon. If anything I found the rare sauce a wee sweeter than I’d prefer, but really there isn’t much to pick on with this grain bowl.

🅱️ulled 🅱️ork 🅱️urger These days, all the discerning craft beer pubs dish out a plethora of palate pleasing food to accompany their booze bonanza, and Orh Gao Taproom does it exceptionally well, or at least with this here pulled pork burger ($17 before 10% service charge). Built out of a pair of soft, tanned buns that you just wanna bury your face into and eat, a good amount of slightly sweet, slightly sharp purple ‘slaw, and a whole load of pulled pork that’s been smoked for six hours, this burger is a thing of beauty. I was highly concerned that the soft buns wouldn’t be able to hold up against the mountain of saucy pulled pork, but apparently my concern was misplaced as those buns did get a little soggy but were never under threat of disintegrating. The pulled pork was majestically moist and stupendously savoury, and that six hour smoking definitely paid off handsomely. The barbecue sauce the pork was tossed in was all the right amounts of sweet, salty and sour, but it did get overbearing towards the final third of the burger. The purple slaw along with my pint of beer on the side swooped into action, the beer washing down the burger while the slaw provided a refreshing crunchiness to the otherwise soft burger. Boozy beers & brilliant burgers are all that’s needed for a bulking bro, trust me. And Orh Gao certainly do both very, very excellently.
Orh Gao Taproom - Craft Beers Pick from ten rotating craft beers on tap here. Beer enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice, you can even sample the beers before committing to one if you’re feeling overwhelmed! I got the Rouge; a brown ale that features “hazelnuts and brown nectar” which completely hit the mark and delivered on those flavours! I hear their range of beers changes frequently, so you might find your choices completely different when you head down, but I’m sure there’s something for everyone.
Fresh Beers FTW Great fun at Orh Gao Taproom's #MajulahBBQ & National Day Parade Screening. Good variety of tasty beers & grub 👌🏻 Happy birthday Singapore! 🇸🇬
