Late-night pub Mex at its best

Dan Hong might just be the busiest chef in town at the moment with Lotus bistro, Ms G's and El Loco as well as Mr Wong. El Loco is a Cantina stuck to the side of a pub (Surry Hills music venue the Excelsior Hotel, recently acquired by the legendary Hemmes clan). So don't go in expecting a restaurant experience: go in expecting approachable pub-Mex. Once you've done that, you'll have a fun time with the $5 tacos, Margarita slushies, Mexican beers and, of course, the hot dog. If you were in Mexico you'd probably the expect the tortillas to be exceptional quality for a fiver. But here in Sydney, we're not so lucky. That said, the fillings are excellent with highlights being the al pastor (pork'n'pineapple) and the carne asada (lemongrass beef). A pub doing tasty, casual eats that aren't laksa? It's so crazy it just might work.
