Locavore – Filipino Food with lots of Twists!
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)
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!
It had me on the soft-boiled egg … with that flowing yolk…
Main Dishes (Ulam)
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.
Healthy goodness … but wait! Is that a pork chop and shrimps? This is something I’d love to learn to cook!
Instead of a roll, you get a pastry puff filled with yummy goodness! To add a piece of heaven, drench it in caramel syrup.
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.
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,
