El Loco, Surry Hills
Verdict: Tacos that pass the taste-test of even a native Californian – and for $5?! Yes, please.
El Loco is located on Faveaux Street in Surry Hills inside the Excelsior. It’s Dan Hong’s new venture and having been to both Ms.G’s and now El Loco – I’m pretty sure I’d be a fan of anything Dan Hong cooked up. We’ve ordered all of the tacos and my favorites are the Al Pastor (pork with pineapple salsa), the Cameron (prawn with salsa verde) and the Pollo (chicken with sweet corn salsa). The tacos are small, but surprisingly quite filling.
My one complaint – $13.50 for a teeny tiny margarita in a plastic cup? Okay fine…since that $5 taco was delish, but really?!
