Ever heard of Locavore Kitchen and Drinks located at Kapitolyo Pasig? Who can resist of eating out especially with friends and relatives. We dine out often on special occasions like on birthdays and special holidays like mother’s day and father’s day.
Nevertheless, the problem is that we are used of eating Filipino food we opted to go for Japanese, Chinese or any that is not Filipino food related. However, with Locavore they made Filipino dishes with the twist. We used of Sinigang with soup but here at Locavore they made Sinigang into a Sizzling.
What is Locavore?
Getting your ingredients within 100miles radius a movement that is practiced Canada, United States and Australia. Locavore believes in getting supplies from local suppliers and local farmers.
Locavore comes from the word carnivore also known as meat-eater. Local Ore = local eater.
Locavore supports local farmers and Filipino made products. They get their seafood from Visayas, Roxas Kalibo, Meats for Batangas. Their vegetables are 80% organic from Antipolo and Tagaytay.
Locavore is making Filipino food with a twist and not considered as a fusion. They make the soul of the Filipino food is still there they just change the choice of vegetables or the choice of meats in the dish and its cooking process. This is what Chef Kel Zaguirre explained to us during our visit.
Locavore made their dishes Basic Filipino flavorings like the Fish sauce, Soy Sauce, vinegar, and the bagoong.
What are the dishes that I liked at Locavore?
I liked the Sugpo Con Mayonesa so much that I even ordered take out. Sugpo Con Mayonesa consists of Jumbo Black Tiger Prawns, Aligue, Garlic, Butter and Japanese Mayonnaise. The sauce of this dish is so good that you can make it as your “ulam”.
Another flavorful dish is the Locavore Lechon & Oyster Sisig. This is the first time I have to eat oyster Sisig style. For others would say you should be precautious in eating oysters. Nevertheless, this one is so addictive that when I get back this is the first dish in my list.
