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!
