Loló is family owned and serves up unique twists to Mexican cuisine. The space is a colourful splash of eccentricity and the food. My god the food. The food is served tapas style, so you gotta share!
Here’s what we had:
Kale Salad – gaja apples, caramelized pecans, cotija cheese, roasted garlic shallots and lime vinaigrette. A flavour explosion in my mouth! Sweet, tart, savoury and crunchy – what a beautiful mixture of bright flavours.
Ceviche – shrimp and rock fish citrus roasted pepper sauce, avocado and salted peppercorns. Good ceviche in Vancouver is hard to find – I’m assuming it’s less of a chore in California, but I would have to say this was a great ceviche.
Fried Brussel Sprouts – shallots, hazelnuts, late harvest zinfandel vinaigrette. The only way I’ll eat brussel sprouts would have to be fried. And I am perfectly ok with eating these sprouts all day, every day. It wasn’t too salty but had a nice slightly sweet taste to it.
Lamb Sliders – on a brioche bun and porcini mushroom sauce. Not the strongest of the foods we ordered, but good in itself – very tender and moist.
Mediterranean Cheese Fondue – Oaxaca cheese, spicy tomato sauce and seasonal mushrooms. I’ve never met a cheese and mushroom dish I didn’t enjoy.
Tuna Tacon – seared albacore tuna shellfish aioli, avocado, roasted tomatillo sauce on the side. Again, not one of the strongest foods we ordered, but still quite good. It’s a nice fusion.
Our drinks were fantastic, they packed quite a punch!
Even just reviewing the food I ate makes me miss this place so much – I wish I could be back in San Fran dining on their delicious eats right now. Put this on your list of places to try out!
