A new Mexican cuisine-inspired food stall is making foodies crazy (in a good way) in Pasig City and at its helm is a chef who used to work for Nobu Manila. Co-owned by Chef Fara Pakdamanian, La Loca Mexican Cantina is not your ordinary taco nook. If anything, it serves a hefty taco that's as big as a person's face via its banner treat called La Loca Special. Ironically, the beast of a taco can be had in a food park environment where you can pair it with other orders of non-Mexican dishes from other stalls that serve Japanese, Italian, and Korean cuisines. At Chef Fara's food stall, though, you can go loco for Soft Taco, Quesadilla, Elote en Vaso, Burrito, Burrito Rice Platter and Nachos.
As for the monstrous La Loca Special, it's fantastic for sharing by three people. It's amusingly served as a crispy tortilla bucket filled with savory layers of Mexican rice, beef corn carne, cheddar cheese, beef carnita, cajun chicken, the signature La Loca sauce, cheese sauce, cajun-buttered corn, cabbage, pico de gallo, pickled chilli and camote chips.

If you're into other treats in the menu, you can go for the Soft Taco (Cajun Chicken or pulled beef with cabbage, pico de gallo, cheddar cheese, La Loca sauce, pickled chilli and tomato salsa) or the Quesadilla (Cajun Chicken or pulled beef with caramelized onion, cheddar, mozzarella cheese, La Loca sauce, pickled chilli and tomato salsa) or the Elote en Vaso (cup of cajun-buttered corn kernels topped with La Loca sauce, cheese sauce and camote chips) or the Burrito (Cajun chicken or pulled beef, flour tortilla, Mexican rice, cabbage, pico de gallo with La Loca sauce and tomato salsa) or its rice platter version -- Burrito Rice Platter or, finally, the Nachos (Corn tortilla topped with beef con carne, pico de gallo, cheese sauce, La Loca sauce and pickled green chilli that's good for four people).
Food Stall Location
The food stall can be found at the Playfield Food Park of The Main Park in Pasig City. It has enough parking for cars and the food park itself is cleverly designed to create an appetizing mood for meals.
