Locavore

Locavore has made quite a good impression with us from the very first time we had dinner at their flagship restaurant in Kapitolyo, Pasig. Since then, we have been to their outlet in Bonifacio Global City (BGC) and we were happy because the taste of their food and quality of their service remained consistent.

Locavore is one of our favorite restaurants but because Pasig and BGC are quite far-off from where we work and live, we thought it was impractical to go there just to eat. It was a good thing that, sometime last year, we saw a banner that they were soon opening a branch in Three Central in Salcedo Village, Makati City. 

This location was just very near our office, so we were thrilled because, finally, we can have our favorite sizzling sinigang whenever we have the craving for it. We made a plan to have dinner at Locavore’s newest location on a Friday evening. However, we had to cancel our plan during the first time we went here because, similar to their other two outlets, the waiting queue can be quite long. As such, we went here for dinner during mid-week, and thankfully, the line was manageable.

Street food platter
We ordered two of our favorites, the street food platter and the sizzling sinigang. We decided to try a dish that was new to us, the garlic baby squid. The street food platter is a skillet with assorted fish balls, squid balls, kikiam, kwek-kwek, and served with three kinds of sauces: the classic sweet Manong’s sauce, sweet chili, and honey vinegar. This was addicting to eat and roused our appetites for the dishes that were to arrive next.

Sizzling sinigang
The Sizzling Sinigang, meanwhile, is as good as how we remembered it. It was made of tender, melt-in-your-mouth short ribs, with French beans, marble potatoes, garlic and shallots, and cherry tomatoes. It was swimming in a sauce that was sour, a little salty, but at the same time, with hints of creaminess. I thought it was heavy cream at first but I later found out that the sauce had cheese and gata or coconut cream in it.

Garlic baby squid
But the revelation of the night was the Garlic Baby Squid. This dish was also so delicious; it left more great memories of Locavore in our minds. It was actually a simple preparation made of baby squid, garlic, and olive oil with cherry tomato toppings. 

The flavors of the squid and garlic meld well and are concentrated in the already rich-tasting olive oil. This was really good with hot rice. The quality of the service is still the same; the servers fast, attentive, and accommodating. 

Price is still the same, Php475 for the Sizzling Sinigang and but the Garlic Baby Squid at Php440, in a small serving dish, was a little on the pricey side for us. All in all, it was again a pleasant experience for us at Locavore.
