Locavore – Filipino Food with lots of Twists!

Locavore Sizzling Sinigang

Sizzling Sinigang – PHP 530
Beef Short Ribs, Sauteed French Beans, Sampaloc Gravy, Garlic Confit

A new restaurant popped out on the line of must try restaurants at Kapitolyo, Pasig and the name of that restaurant would be Locavore. Locavore means “one who eats locally produced food“.

Locavore would be the venue of our short high school get together (short because we were not able to join the after lunch activities). Coming into Locavore, I only got to research that they serve Filipino Cuisine and the rest would be up for discovery.

Now… Behold… the combinations that would make you say;

Pwede yan?!” (That’s possible?!)

Di ko naisip yan a.” (I didn’t think of that)

Onga noh, galing a!” (ah yaahh, impressive!)

Appetizers (Pampagana at Ensalada)

First up, we had the street food platter (PHP 200) made up of fish balls / squid balls / kikiam / kwek-kwek and comes with three sauces; manong’s sauce, sweet chili and honey vinegar. (failed to get a pic but they don’t look any different from what you can see being sold at the streets – except for a better presentation)

Locavore Pusit ala Pobre

Pusit ala Pobre – PHP 220
Squid, Squid Ink, Garlic Confit, Spring Onions

Locavore Lechon and Oyster Sisig

Lechon and Oyster Sisig – PHP 400

You should try this! The crunchiness of the lechon partnered with savory oysters made it a great appetizer or you can very well partner it with rice!

Locavore Luglug

Luglug – PHP 340
Aligue, Glass Noodles, Bisque – Atsuete Sauce, Pusit, Shrimp, Chicharon, Spring Onion

It had me on the soft-boiled egg … with that flowing yolk…

Main Dishes (Ulam)

Locavore Sizzling Sinigang

Sizzling Sinigang – PHP 530
Beef Short Ribs, Sauteed French Beans, Sampaloc Gravy, Garlic Confit

A dish that was made for me! Bulalo and Sinigang; in one sizzling plate. What more could you ask for? You should definitely try this! Very similar to kansi.

Locavore Thrice Cooked Pata

Thrice Cooked Pata – PHP 770
Pickled Cucumber and Onion, Sarsa, Pinakurat, Bagoong Dipping Sauce, Soy Vinegar Sauce, Cucumber

Locavore Ginataang Kalabasa

Ginataang Kalabasa – PHP 390
Kalabasa, Gata, French Beans, Locavore Porkchop, Shrimp

Healthy goodness … but wait! Is that a pork chop and shrimps? This is something I’d love to learn to cook!

Desserts (Panghimagas)

Locavore Turon con Leche

Turon con Leche – PHP 220
Puff Pastry, Leche Flan, Salted Egg Dulce de Gatas

Instead of a roll, you get a pastry puff filled with yummy goodness! To add a piece of heaven, drench it in caramel syrup.

Locavore Leche Flan

Leche Flan – PHP 200
House Special

Leche flan is already great on its own but the addition of non other than caramel syrup made it ultra mega super-duper great! Oh yeah, it also had mandarin oranges on the side.

Locavore Bicho Bicho

Bicho Bicho – PHP 160
Whipped Cream, Coco Jam, Tablea Sauce, Banana

A classic favorite! I used to buy this a lot way back in my elementary years. The dish that brings back memories and makes new memories.

The dishes we had ranged from expensive, so-so and shut up and take my money! I want it now! levels. I made mental notes of the dishes that I’m sure to order again; and new dishes that I’d want to try on my next visit.

Till next time,

Allen
