My review for Zoco – I absolutely love Mexican cuisine, and this restaurant takes traditional Mexican dishes and adds a lovely twist to them.
The picante guacamole was not too spicy, I would have loved it to spicier though. The flavours of the avocado was wonderful and the chips went well with it.
The snapper crudo was so good. I loved the acidic flavours from the lime and habenero sauce where it livened up the snapper a whole lot.
The scallop crudo was my favourite dish of the night. The scallops were juicy and it paired so nicely with the rose wine that I was having. The mixture of lime and passionfruit juice was the perfect sauce for this dish.
I am a fan of octopus and the octopus dish here was divine! I avoided the chorizo in this dish because I don’t eat beef, but the octopus was the star anyways. The octopus was perfectly marinated and the squid ink aioli was a great sauce on the side.
Finally, I had a cheat meal today where I spoiled my stomach for Valentine’s day so I chose to have dessert as well. The dulce de leche was delicious and heaven for my mouth. I loved puff pastry where it was light and fluffy.
This restaurant deserves a rating of 4.5/5.
I ordered the picante guacamole for 65DHS, octopus crudo for 65DHS, snapper crudo for 65DHS, scallop crudo for 75DHS, lobster tacos for 90DHS, octopus mar for 95DHS, fideo mar for 85DHS, and the dulce de leche for 50DHS.
The pricing of the dishes here was reasonable for the quality and portion sizes of the dishes.
The service was marvelous where our server, Jove, worked hard to ensure that we were doing well even with the busy Valentine’s Day rush.
The ambience of the restaurant was beautiful, and we came on Valentine’s Day, so it was perfectly decorated for this day.
I loved the touch of cactus plants on the tables, it’s decor like this that makes me appreciate the restaurant more.
