With one foot firmly in Italian tradition, another in contemporary Japanese cuisine and – somehow – a third foot in homely comforts and casual dining like a friendly bar, PocoLoco Microbrewery is something unique in Singapore. Adding a superb selection of ales and drinks to their delicious Italian food famous from their other locations around the city, PocoLoco Microbrwery in the Snow City Building on Jurong Town Hall Road (in Jurong, of course) puts the best foot forward – whether it’s one of those three mentioned above or even a fourth.
It’s hard to believe when you look at the prices, but PocoLoco Microbrewery offers some of the finest Italian dining you can find anywhere in Singapore. However, you will not find any of the fluff, fuss or pretentious conventions of other fine-dining Italian restaurants, because PocoLoco in Jurong (and their other heartland locations, for that matter) are all about keeping it casual. That means friendly but non-invasive service, a warm, vibrant atmosphere, and sociable shared plates rather than single-serve multi-course menus. Given its name, PocoLoco is of course also an excellent place to pick up a cold brew, but above all it’s the food that shines here inside the Snow City Building on Jurong Town Hall Road.
If you thought you knew what Italian fine dining looked like in Singapore, think again. PocoLoco Microbrewery serve up dishes as exquisite and beautifully presented as the city’s swankier spots, but they have the feel of a hearty meal at Nonna’s, too. Try PocoLoco Microbrewery’s incredible handmade seaweed pasta with crayfish or pork collar with garlic and shallots to get a traditional Italian fix, or delve into their intriguing fusion creations like the Japanese-Italian inspired squid-ink tagliolini with Japanese mentaiko sauce. The menu stretches from enticing antipasto to decadent desserts, and whoever you’re with everybody will be impressed by PocoLoco Microbrewery in the Snow City Building on Jurong Town Hall Road.
Good food. Pasta was done well and the ambience was rather nice. Beer is recommended. Tasted great! Enjoyed my time there. Will be back for sure.
Probably one of the worth-for-money italian dining places in the west. The food is really good and the portions are reasonable. The quality of the food is comparable to those in Holland V. Do make a reservation before going as they get really crowded after 7pm.
A quiet restaurant with great staff. Food is good with reasonable prices. The craft beer goes well with the food. The beef tenderloin and tiramisu suited our taste. Did not have to wait long for the food as the lunch crowd was thin.
