We’re going loco for Poco

This is what tapas dreams are made of.

In Spanish, the word ‘poco’ means ‘little.’ Whilst this newly-opened Spanish spot is small in size, it punches well above its weight when it comes to flavour. 

Replacing dessert joint The Stand in the Valley’s colourful California Lane, Poco had big shoes to fill – and is definitely hitting the mark. Whether you’re a notorious snacker or someone who likes a big ol’ feed (we’re a bit from column A, bit from column B), there’ll be something for you to dig into at Poco.

Start your Poco experience with a cheese board, fried chicken baos, and crumbed mushrooms stuffed with brie. At this point you will have lost all self control, and you’ll have already ordered two rounds of salt and pepper calamari and cider-glazed chorizo. We know you so well, don’t we?

It’s a crime to finish the night without a sweet treat – choose from a range of classics like sticky-date pudding, apple and rhubarb crumble, Belgian waffles, and more. All of this has to be washed down with something… The answer is always a jug of sangria. 

Brisbane, we hope you’re ready for delicious fare with Spanish flair, right in the heart of the Valley.
