Go Loco for Coco

Coco Loco 1

A few meters away from Anda’s Quinale Public Beach is this small newly-opened restaurant called Coco Loco.  From the get go, you’ll know what is the star is in the restaurant. Coconut, of course. If the name and the hanged paintings do not make it more obvious, I don’t know what will.

The quirky paintings have one thing in common

Coco Loco is the recent initiative spearheaded by TAFIAS, the same local livelihood group that brought to our taste buds homemade taro ice cream and the popular tilapia chips.  This time around, it is not taro or tilapia but coconut which will serve as staple ingredient in their menu offerings that is of foreign backgrounds but done with locally-grown Filipino ingredients.

Robin Gurney, one of the pivotal individuals behind the different entrepreneurial undertakings of TAFIAS, said that apart from the usage of local ingredients to recreate many of their menu’s foreign offerings, all local ingredients are organic while sauces and other food and drinks are homemade.  There’s always something special and scrumptious about a food with a touch of home.  Much more, rice meals also come with either the white rice variant we all know and love or the more fiber-enriched brown alternative.  That’s happy tummies and healthier options in one place.

When your feet brings you to Anda, don’t forget to make a stopover at Coco Loco and feast on their savory rich flavors.  There is their flavorful half-rack BBQ ribs (Php349) made of locally-produced beef slow cooked for maximum juiciness and covered in our secret homemade sauce.  Their BBQ ribs are available only during weekends unless you press your order in advance and is best paired with the refreshing Coco Loco Iced Tea (Php49).  For instant refreshments, you won’t regret trying their Banana Shake with Honey and Coco Water (Php99) with TAFIAS’ Homemade Taro Ice Cream (Php79).

Healthier alternatives, great food, friendly staff, and supporting local communities, Coco Loco is simple a one-stop shop from the fine white sands of the Quinale Beach that will allow you to unwind, feast, and give back all in one shot.  Now who wouldn’t go Loco for Cocos for that if that’s the case.
