Lucha Loco, Duxton

The margaritas at Lucha Loco are supremely excellent, probably the best in Singapore. I had just finished a long workout session and in need of a drink, and what better place to get some than Lucha Loco, made with top quality ingredients - good quality tequila, fresh lime, which makes for a really refreshing drink. Indeed the classic margarita was extremely enjoyable: I could have had a couple more if curiosity didn't lead me to try something else. (8.5/10)

I ordered the crab tostadillas again - they were as good as I remembered them to be: fresh crab with good seafood flavour, avocado, cabbage, doused in a tangy dressing; delicious and light all at the same time. We helped ourselves to seconds. (8/10)

The beer-battered fish taco was similarly excellent: tasty and paired well with their slightly spicy sauce. (7.5/10)

I was also quite fond of the ceviche: snapper and mango with onions and the other raw vegetables. Deliciously tart. (7/10)

My friend had pleasant impressions of the grilled fish she had the other day, and cajoled us to order it again, so we obliged - and we weren't disappointed with the grilled barramundi featuring flaky-tender flesh and crisp, well seasoned skin. (7.25/10)

Had another prawn taco (no photo) which was well-seasoned as well; as well as a passionfruit cocktail. 

Lucha Loco wasn't cheap - the bill per head was about SGD 80, but it certainly is an enjoyable place for a boozy night out. Yums. A tip: this place is packed to the brim on Friday nights and hence a recommendation's certainly in order.
