Since then, I've been back quite a few times because I literally love everything about it: the 'half-open' space, the simple and rustic decor, the friendly people but most of all, of course, the mouthwatering and yet healthy food! (shocking I know)
Locofama does a whole range of very healthy looking juices - unfortunately a bit too healthy looking for me...
But I can never turn down a fresh young coconut! The best part about this is that there is an alcoholic version that comes with a shot of vodka - so you can feel fresh and get drunk at the same time (score!)
In the few times that I've hit up Locofama, I've quickly found my favourite dishes, and the first of them is the Truffle Crab Dip. If you read my Clockenflap post, you will know that the truffle crab puff was what made me fall in love with Locofama. At the restaurant, the bite-sized puffs are gone but in its place is a BOWL full of truffle crab dip and toasted baguette slices.
The dip is warm, rich and oh so fragrant with its big dollop of truffle. Every bite is simply filled crabby goodness! And you can forget your no-carb diet because I have never gotten away with not ordering an extra portion of bread even though every time I tell myself I shouldn't...
My personal favourite dish is their Tomato Fried Rice. The name itself is a little misleading, it's more like a tomato risotto. More importantly, instead of rice, it's made of quinoa! This means that although the flavours are moreish and satisfying, it is much less calorie laden than your average 'fried rice'. This is the ultimate feel good dish!
Another major signature dish of Locofama is the 48 Hour Rib. It's the perfect slow cooked meat dish - tender and silky smooth but still retaining a nice bite and a great meaty flavour. The tangy dressing is also a great match, especially because this often comes last, by which point you may be feeling more than a little full and completely thankful that this wonderful dish comes with such a zesty and mouthwatering sauce.
On top of these three MUST HAVE dishes, the menu also contains lots of amazing gems: happy avocado (yum), oolong soba (yum yum), spicy spinach quesadilla (yum yum yum)... The list goes on...
So if ever you're in the mood for a fix of good food that's good for your belly AND your figure, drop by Locofama! I promise you'll be greeted with a warm friendly welcome and some top notch nosh!
