The Loco Group opens new fast-casual Mexican spit-roasted chicken joint, Chico Loco in the heart of the Central Business District.
Located on Amoy Street in the buzzy Telok Ayer area, Chico Loco is here to buck the eat clean trend, and shake up what it means to eat healthy. Food can be a deliciously dirty four-letter word, and the Mexican chicken joint is here to dish out dirty healthy plates. Fresh, guilt-free comfort food that is irrevocably good for body and soul, and irresistible fare that chars, drips, smokes and sizzles.
Forget eating clean. Chico Loco is here to serve up food worth getting dirty for.
Grab some napkins and get ready to devour some seriously good chicken at Chico Loco, where the birds are always antibiotic-free, hormone-free, cage-free and organic-fed.
Before the chickens go on the spit, Chico Loco brines them for 10 hours in an umami solution featuring a touch of agave nectar. The chickens are then basted with a secret house blend of 11 herbs and spices including quintessentially Mexican ingredients like achiote, dried oregano and mustard powder for bold splashes of flavour. Over the course of an hour, the chickens are roasted before a naked flame for a luscious, smoky finish. The result? Moist, fork-tender chicken that is as tasty as it is healthy.
The Loco Group Pte Ltd owns and manages Chico Loco, Lucha Loco and Super Loco. The four partnersJulian Tan, Christian Tan (aka “The Tan Brothers”), Ajay Parag and Chef Jason Jones have also recently launched their own hot sauce, tequila and craft beer range.

Join Meat Smith on their exploration of all things fire, smoke, char and the essence of the barbeque culture in their new location - 21 Campbell Lane.
An eclectic mix of Indian spice and @meatsmith_sg grunge, Meat Smith Little India is American barbecue from the south, with an accent of Indian flavour.
With its colourful façade and street artwork, Meat Smith Little India fits in perfectly at its home, on Campbell Lane, Little India.
The concept originated from the Wanderlust Hotel, as a pop up taking over the space formerly known as Cocotte. The kitchen helmed by Chef Andrew Baldus, of Meat Smith on Telok Ayer, who created a masterful menu combining the technique of slow cooking and barbecue, with his interpretation of Indian spice, rubs and sauces.
Opening on 10 December is Weber Store & Training Cente at Joo Chiat. Weber is a premier brand of grill/barbeque equipment. The line of grills, dubbed to be created by grillers, for grillers.
In 1952 George Stephen Sr. was working at Weber Brothers Metal Works in Chicago, Illinois, manufacturing marine buoys when he came up with an idea for a better grill. His invention: a dome-shaped grill with a lid to protect food from the elements, while sealing in that only-from-the-grill barbecue flavor. George Stephen cut a buoy in half, added some air vents and legs and, in the process, invented the grill that would spark a backyard revolution.

The latest edition to the Keong Saik district is an urban Izakaya, Neon Pigeon.
Inspired by the world of flavours found in the hidden spots of Tokyo and the underground culture of buzzling cities like New York and Hong Kong, the establishment is a vibrant social house offering great value for money and the soul of a Japanese Izakaya with a punch of urban grit.
With a selection of starters (appropriately named ‘Bird Feed’), soups, greens, seafood and meats, Japanese snacks are given a modern and in-house twist at Neon Pigeon. The Izakaya-style menu, designed for tastings, serves up dishes in ‘small’ or ‘large’ portions and you are recommended to order six to eight small dishes to share between two people.
A look at the menu and you will notice the heavy use of classic, no-frills Japanese flavours in the condiments and among the assortment of "Bird Feed", is a cold dish of Chilled Cucumber with home-mixed crushed chilli peanuts, nori (seaweed) and goma (sesame), as well as the Tsukune Sliders, an east-meets-west combo of a Japanese meatball patty and a western slider bun, coupled with pickled kyuri (Japanese cucumber) and tare (soy basting sauce) aioli.
Keeping up with the fun-sharing concept, Neon Pigeon also offers a large format dining option of Barbecued Pork Shoulder for groups of four to six. With a two-day advance order required, the hearty fare of pork shoulder is slow-cooked for 20 hours and served in a black pepper teriyaki glaze, with a ginger scallion dipping sauce, bibb lettuce wraps, steamed buns, a spring onion salad, onigiri rice cake, kimchi and pickles to complement.
Also an integral part of the concept’s underground vibe is the Neon Pigeon bar. The bar’s Japanese-inspired drinks list includes a selection of Japanese beers and whiskeys, each a representative of different prefectures, as well as a curated list of spirits and Japanese inspired speciality cocktails. These include Throw A Kyuri-Ken, a vodka-based cocktail with a refreshing touch of lemon juice, yuzu and cucumber, as well as Harajuku Girl, a mix of gin, shiso leaf, and plum bitters.
The bar also houses a selection of sake of varying fragrances and complexity, including a range of Junmai, Daiginjo, Ginjo and Honjozo sakes, that were all hand-picked from sake distilleries across Japan to complement the dishes offered at Neon Pigeon.
Specially designed by US-based EDG Interior Architecture + Design, the Neon Pigeon space at The Working Capitol building on Keong Saik is built to own the vibe of a hidden spot off the main street only known to the locals, as a veiled corner of an urban metropolis. The exterior shows only a fluorescent pink pigeon, lit when in business, while the interior is paved with raw elements of steel and bricks that are softened with sophisticatedly designed wood finishing, giving the social hangout an urban grit with comfort and familiarity – an atmosphere reminiscent of Shibuya district in Tokyo or East Village in New York. A semi-open concept kitchen is also featured, with the action in the kitchen open for a close-up view.
A final and crucial touch to the space is the loud graffiti work plastered on the walls of the interior that gives the restaurant a touch of the underground New York City vibe. The team had specially commissioned local visual artist, ZERO to create these murals.
