A down to earth (including prices) cafe serving pretty legit Italian food. For appetiser I ordered the Foie Gras with Truffle sauce. The pan seared foie Gras melts in mouth, with the truffle sauce accentuating the taste of the Foie Gras.

For mains, I ordered the Tagliatelle with Hokkaido Uni and Nero Seafood Risotto. The tagliatelle was al dente and the Uni was fresh. The Nero risotto fully absorbed the flavour of the seafood broth and the squid ink. Heavenly.

I’ll be back to try their Pork Collar and Tenderloin from their grilled meat section.

Have you seen a PINK pasta before? Because I have not! The pink was natural colouring from beet root. So pretty right? Don't worry, there is no earthliness flavour at all! It taste like aglio olio that is not spicy and less garlic taste. In addition, it has no meat, making it vegetarian friendly.

Chicken tender were the parts used for this dish. I personally do not prefer this part of the chicken compared to the thigh. This is because it has very little fat percentage, causing the meat to be drier. However, the chicken was very well seasoned which compromises the drier texture. I love the masala wine sauce as well!

PocoLoco serves one of the best tiramisu in town! The cream is very light, not jelat at all even if you finish the dessert by yourself. Unlike the other tiramisu, their lady finger biscuits are dipped in coffee just before serving so it is still crunchy!

It was kinda sad not being able to have a nicely flowed out lava cake. I think I spent too much time taking photos of it before I cut it open, causing the batter to be cooked. Nonetheless, it still tasted very rich a sweet dessert to end the meal.

Cooked till medium rare, you can see the tenderloin is still mostly pink in the centre. The surface was cooked and firm to touch whereas the inside was still soft and juicy.
Unfortunately, I find the meat a lil chewy as I had a hard time breaking the muscle fiber down in my mouth. In addition, the portion might not be enough to satisfy people with a larger appetite. So if you're trying to fill your stomach, risotto or pasta might be a better option. If not, you can just order more dishes!
