Super Loco Group commemorates Earth Day with Loco Earth Month, and will offer an exclusive sustainable menu this month of April.
Earth Day officially takes place on 22 April each year. But Super Loco Group believes that sustainability should be on your mind for more than just one day. To that end, to celebrate Earth Day this year the Mexican hospitality group has launched a carbon-conscious menu across the entire month of April.
For Loco Earth Month, Super Loco has partnered Australian plant-based startup Fable Food. From 4 to 30 April, Super Loco will be offering a special menu featuring Fable Food’s sustainably-sourced, plant-based meat alternative made from shiitake mushrooms in various Mexican dishes.
Super Loco’s carbon-conscious Loco Earth Month menu will be available across three of the group’s outlets during the course of the campaign: Lucha Loco on Duxton Hill, and both Super Loco diners at Robertson Quay and Customs House. The dishes are available as a four-course dinner set menu for two (priced at S$80++ per person), but you can also order them à la carte.
Eco-conscious dishes include Garden Flautas, which are crispy spinach herb tortillas filled with earthy Mexican truffle, crispy quinoa and goat cheese that sit on a pumpkin seed salsa and cactus pico de gallo, as well as the Fable Al Pastor Taco, which eschews the usual pork carnitas for Fable’s mushroom-based meat alternative tucked unto a soft bamboo ash tortilla drizzled with chipotle mayo.
For those who love their seafood Lucha Loco’s Pan-Fried Barramundi, and the Barramundi at both Customs House and Robertson Quay all use sustainably-farmed barramundi from local fishery Kühlbarra. For dessert there’s Pomegranate Tres Leches, composed of layered sponge and coconut cream atop tart pomegranate gelée.
Offered as part of the set is Zero to Hero, a zero-waste cocktail. This tipple is made with fruit-infused tequila – employing fruit waste such as lime husks and citrus peels that would have otherwise normally been discarded – for a refreshing tropical tipple.
What’s particularly insightful is also Super Loco’s menu, which lists out the carbon footprint of every dish to help you with your dining decisions.
If you’ve opted for the set menu, you also have the option to adopt a tree under your name, part of a Super Loco initiative with reforestation technology startup Green Steps.
But Super Loco’s Loco Earth Month truly goes beyond its special menu. As part of the month-long campaign, Super Loco will be hosting various activities to drive home the green message. Across three Saturdays on 16, 23 and 30 April, diners can choose to sign up for one of three add-on activities that touch on topics such as zero-waste, urban farming, and plant-based cooking when booking their dinner reservations.
For example, on 16 April is a Kintsugi pottery class in collaboration with Gold & Behold, while 23 April will see Fleur House Singapore guide participants on an urban farming journey. On 30 April is a plant-based cooking class, led by nutrition coach Elika Tasker of Discover Everton.
“With climate change on the rise and Earth Day around the corner, we wanted to create a campaign that can not just inspire but give people the tools to live consciously outside of our restaurants,” shared Christian Tan, co-founder of Super Loco Group.
