Lady Iron Chef Review Casa Poncho

Casa Poncho – New Latino Restaurant & Bar With Ceviche, Churros & Mezcal Cocktails

Tucked away on Bukit Pasoh, the vibrant and lively Casa Poncho is a new Latino restaurant and bar that serves some of the best churros and cocktails in the area. Inspired by Latin American cuisine, the dishes are designed to be shared and feature a whole array of rustic nosh synonymous with Mexican comfort food.

If fresh ceviche, sinful churros and devilish Mezcal-based cocktails are things you fancy, then this new kid on the block is sure to spice up your evening as you watch the sun slowly set and kiss the workday goodbye.

For a little bit of Mexico in the heart of Singapore, drop by Casa Poncho be it for a full-on meal or an end-of-work tipple.

Decked out in vibrant colours and with groovy Latin music booming in the background, Casa Poncho is the sort of place you should definitely come with your best buddies for a night out of zero restraint. Armed with a cocktail in hand, the restaurant’s vibrant atmosphere will have you feeling transported straight to Cuba.

If like us, you go absolutely mental at the sight of a grilled octopus leg, then allow their El Pulpo, an insanely tender grilled octopus topped with chilli ranchera salsa, pumpkin seeds, and a dash of scallion oil, to delight your taste buds.

To get yourself and your mates in the mood for a fiesta (and fast), consider one of their Mezcal-based cocktails. Mezcal is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from an agave plant native to Mexico and much like the infamous spirit, tequila, it really packs a mean punch.

Casa Poncho Review: Latin American ceviche, churros and more…

Who is Poncho? Hot New Table Casa Poncho is a new Latino joint in town serving some of the best churros and cocktails in Bukit Pasoh – welcome to Poncho’s crib.

Can’t get enough of ceviche, churros and cocktails? Keep your eyes peeled for this one: nestled on the trendy street of Bukit Pasoh, Casa Poncho is the latest addition to the neighbourhood that we’re super excited about. This Hot New Table is a Latin American joint with a Singapore twist – having taken over the ground floor of former mahjong association Keow Siong Club, you’ll see aunties and uncles head up the stairs for their weekly game while you’re just casually sitting at the bar. Come with your girl friends, your work mates, or a fun date, for a night fuelled with Mezcal Margaritas, fabulous bites, and incredible music – Casa Poncho’s vibrant atmosphere will have you feeling transported straight to Cuba.

Word on the street is that Poncho loved great food, drinks, music, cigars and movies – and true to form the restaurant is decked out with all the things he loved. Who is Poncho anyway? We’ll get to that later. At the bar, a contemporary Latino mural begs for a photo-opp, while bright graffiti sets the tone. Inside, the main restaurant feels cosy and intimate, with some seriously eclectic artifacts all brought back from Poncho’s travels are displayed all over the place. You’ll find a cigar cabinet filled with all of his favourite cigars nestled in a corner, while his favourite black and white films are projected on the wall. A rowdy live band plays to bring a noisy good time, while Poncho keeps watch from his motorbike. You’ll see.

Hungry? You should be. In the kitchen, chefs Geoffrey Weckx and Lee Jin Rong cook up a feast of modern sharing plates bursting with punchy Latin flavour, while friendly waiters dashing from table to table, serving plenty of fare to get you in the mood. Standout dishes include fresh, fresh, fresh French seabass ceviche with avocado twist, Mexican grilled pork skewers with roasted pineapple couli, crispy fried chicken with triple salsa, beef cheek mole with fresh jicama, grilled Spanish octopus with ranchera salsa puree and our personal favourite, Churros de Queso – a crispy yet pillowy chilli cheese churros that we still have dreams about. You’ll want to save room for Pastry Chef Sharon Ling’s sweet creations that include a warm weather friendly Horchata Flan with Mango Mint and Fresh Berries.

Salt Magazine Review new opening

Casa Poncho

Located within a beautiful shophouse in the heart of Tanjong Pagar, Casa Poncho is a Latin American diner sprawled over four sections: a courtyard, bar, restaurant and terrace. Designed to resemble a country home in Mexico, diners can enjoy their signature cocktails in the courtyard before they retreat into the main restaurant for comfort dishes like the Mexican Grilled Pork Skewers ($12) with roasted pineapple coulis. For those who are fans of seafood, there is a thick and juicy Grilled Spanish Octopus ($36, sharing plate) with ranchera salsa puree on offer, or if you’re in the mood for something lighter, a briny-fresh French Seabass Ceviche ($24) with creamy avocado. Casa Poncho’s apéritifs are made with mezcal, a distilled alcoholic beverage made with agave plants native to Mexico. Be sure to pick up the Mezcal Negroni, made with the mezcal espadin, sweet vermouth, campari and orange. The Poncho Club is also a drink not to be missed, with a slew of ingredients like the mezcal curpreata, ruby port, dry vermouth, blackberry syrup, lime juice, Bittermens’ hellfire habanero shrub (a spicy fruit and vinegar-based syrup) and egg whites. All cocktails at Casa Poncho are $16.
