ITALIAN FOOD IN THE HEARTLAND by The Straits Times (1st April 2016) Tan Hsueh Yu Food Editor recommends

While walking around in circles trying to find PocoLoco, I get to thinking how apt the name of this Italian restaurant is. It means Little Crazy in Spanish (not Italian) and the owners must have a sense of humour. Why would anyone open an Italian restaurant in the deep heartland of Ang Mo Kio, surrounded […]
