Loca is one of those places that never lets us down.
With a popular ladies’ night, brilliant Mexican cuisine and a cool terrace, it has a lot of things going for it.
But now we have another reason to love the Mexican bar and restaurant, as in honour of the festive season, it is hosting a special seven-hour brunch on December 14.
Running from noon to 7pm, the one-off event will offer brunchers a special festive menu and unlimited house beverages for Dhs285.
The dishes on offer include the eatery’s legendary guacamole with crunchy tortillas chips, fajitas de pavo, tacos de carne cochida and caldo de pollo rojo.
There will also be turkey-based creations such as the tostadas pavo pipian and huarache de pava with all the trimmings and a traditional caramel flan for dessert.
Diners can also win prizes by taking part in a traditional game of Loteria, while the live band and DJ provide a soundtrack of Latin, cheesy pop and dance tunes throughout the afternoon.
The party brunch is sure to be packed out, so make sure you book a table in advance.
Dhs285. Dec 14, noon-7pm. The Galleria, Al Maryah Island (02 582 3639).
