It was due to a hype and total curiosity that we decided to dine at Locavore on Sunday noon after church. I had some expectations and I felt enthusiastic about eating here because I have seen Locavore on television as well as on my Instagram feed most of the time. Unfortunately, my experience was disappointing.

This place is known for the twists they do for classic Filipino food. The interior design is industrial and when we went there, only the open area was allowed for dining since there was a private party inside. It was raining at that time so it felt cool but the ventilation was not really that good. The restaurant has a good amount of staff who were easy to call whenever you would ask for something. The downside: they served us the wrong dish, twice.

Here are the things that we ordered:

Fresh Lumpia. Tinapa, kesong puti, tomato ensalada, salted egg, lettuce. I liked how this dish was plated as well as the dip. The dip tastes like yema but with a spicy after taste. The fresh lumpia itself tastes average.

Kare-Kare Wings. 6 pieces wings, kare kare glaze, buttermilk ranch dressing, singkamas, mangga, bagoong. At first, we thought that there were only 3 pieces when we counted them; the wings were too small and were clumped together so we ended up counting them as one. Does not taste like kare kare to me.

Roasted Garlic Organic White Rice (3 orders). It's a plus that they are serving organic rice; but there was nothing special about it. Tastes average.

Steamed Organic Brown Rice. I had to ask the waiter if this was really their "brown" rice.

Their Best Sellers:

Sizzling Sinigang. Beef short ribs, sauteed french beans, sampaloc gravy, garlic confit. For a sizzling dish, it tastes good; but to call it sinigang is another thing. Yes this place is known for the twists that they do to Filipino dishes but I no longer find it near sinigang. Too much sitaw and garlic, no kangkong, and the sampaloc gravy needs to be more sour. It tastes salty.

Lechon Oyster Sisig. This one is good though it tastes mostly of lechon and the gravy. The oyster is difficult to notice.

In terms of the price, ingredients used, and amount of serving, the meals are just not price-worthy. Not to mention the ambiance of the place. We were not able to eat at least half of every dish that we ordered because we did not really enjoy it. We ended up asking the waiter to just pack it for take-out and then we opted to dine at another restaurant in Kapitolyo.

Got a impromptu get together with my 2 close friends here in Locavore the other week. One of them studied and work in Korea for a longtime thats why we decided to go for locavore. On a weekday dinner lucky we were able to immediately grab a table. There was no long queue on our visit unlike before.

For the food we ordered two dishes the Sizzling Sinigang and Mayonesa con sugpo. We love them both but the Sizzling Sinigang was the winner. The unique flavor of a deconstructed sinigang was sure hit for a balik bayan. The meat was very tender and the french beans was crunchy delicious. Mayonesa con sugpo was equally good but an order of it for the 3 of us got an umay effect. Still it was delicious maybe because of the mayo it tends to be nakakaumay. Overall we enjoyed the food and service on this visit.128522

Filipino food interpreted in French Techniques. Pwede! Good reviews and drooling over reviews. I am excited!

The place has alfresco and airconditioned dining area. Interiors are hip and simple, accents in gray & black , metal all over, wooden tables. At night, looks like it would be a nice place to hangout. Lots of alcohol!

For appetizer:
11088️salted egg gabi chips- literally tasted like salted egg puree. So good!

11088️kinilaw tanigue- cubed tanigue,served in a jar. Mixture consists of cane vinegar, shallots, red bell pepper, spring onion, and ginger. I can't argue with this, I am a kinilaw fan! Serving looks small yet its flavorful, enough for 7 pax.

Main course:
11088️sizzling sinigang- superb! Sampaloc gravy is something I can't imagine. A very creative way of reinventing an all time Filipino favorite. It has beef short ribs, sauteed french beans.
11088️lechon oyster sisig- rice intensive of all! Flavorful in taste, generous serving.
11088️mac's boneless fried chicken- a house special boneless chicken. Enjoyed munching of yummy meat without a hassle.
11088️sugpo con mayonesa - a personal favorite of mine! It has jumbo black tiger prawns, aligue, garlic, butter and japanese mayonnaise.

We also another sugpo dish (i forgot the name), it has sauce and cherry tomatoes. Its also good since its sugpo!

Dessert:
11088️turon con leche
11088️halo halo
11088️sizzling pandesal pudding

Verdict: i love everything that I ate! I highly recommend the sizzling sinigang, sugpo con mayonesa, and sizzling lechon oyster sisig! The 2 appetizers are just so yummy too. Excellent service! This is the first time that Servers transfer dishes, so their customers need not to pass the dishes. Also, they are extra attentive on what we need. Pricing is just okay128522

Followede after dinner to my friend and her husband's despedida.

They have a promo for San Mig and Brew Kettle from 9pm-12mn, Sunday to Thursday which is buy 1 take 1. A bit expensive for local beers during regular hours.

We weren't able to try out their dishes, will go back for it next time.

Fusion is not new to some, Locavore however brings local delicacies with so much hype and excitement. I've been here and so late i just discovered the place last year. It was only then introduced to me by somebody who apparently made a reservation that night and was amused of everything of what exactly is on the menu. The first time though, was not remarkable since we only ordered appetizers but the second chance was a blast since i was the one to treat my colleagues that night as i have mentioned to them that the restaurant is a must try in Kapitolyo. Ordered Sizzling Sinigang, Mayonesa, Lechon Belly. The place is quite posh in a way the crowd blends, quite intimidating on our part, Still we just claimed the night as if we belonged. The food was served one by one, sizzled, smoked and smelled differently you can no longer wait to try. Mayonesa is to die for, with prawns so large and the sauce was damn prepared with so much reasons to drizzle on your rice. Sizzling Sinigang was a fusion you will never expect. And lastly, Lechon Belly will surely forget its cholesterol content once you heard its crunchy bite. The experience was indeed a blast as we ended up full and that we only spent the remaining time tackling out rumors in the office. Though the price is quite not affordable, only dictates the quality and servings of it. The place for your loved ones and an ideal treat for those who want fusion dishes.

My parents are the hardest to please when it comes to eating out. The food must not only be good, but also cheap. So when we took them out for a post-New Year's dinner, we figured out that they would love Locavore.

Locavore is anything but cheap, so we just ordered for them without showing them the menu (and prices). 128514 And they loved it! Even if they saw our bill afterwards hahaha. So glad that we also arrived before 6, because reservations were full and there was already a line forming outside.

We ordered the following:
Kare Kare Wings - my sister ordered this. It was very flavorful, and there was no denying the nutty, Kare Kare taste. I think that it could even beat the nuttiness of other "real" Kare Kare dishes. The bagoong was good, but the buttermilk ranch dressing did nothing for me. Although the dish was yummy, it was overshadowed by our other orders.

Sugpo con Mayonesa - this is one of their priciest dishes in the menu, but it was worth it. The shrimps were HUGE. We had a hard time finishing it. The dish was super garlicky and savory, it was just heaven. The only downside to this dish was that it was swimming in oil.

Sizzling Sinigang - My favorite dish of the night. 100841008410084 This is a must try! The sinigang gravy/sauce was so mouthwatering, that you'll order lots of extra rice for this one. The beef was tender, you could just slice it with a fork and a spoon. The veggies were cooked well. I would eat this everyday if I could. 128546 The servings were also huge, we had it for takeout.

Oyster Sisig - this was okay, you could really taste the oysters, but you could skip it. The dish could be a bit cloying after.

Locavore truly deserves to be one of the top.and highly-rated restaurants in Manila. 128523

Finally having hearing rave review about Locavore I've finally got to try it out. As early as around 5pm we were already there for dinner but to my surprise the place was already packed with people. We were able to grab a table outside. The place got the industrial setup. A container van kind of feel. Nothing fancy. The setup reminds me of Central BBQ or Tides.

Locavore is well known for their take on some Filipino comfort food and here are the things we tried out:
127842Singkamas/Mangga at Bagoong (175PHP) - this was requested by my brother and I find it silly to order it at that price. Nothing special just the typical mangga't singkamas sold by the street vendor.
128031Kinilaw Platter (370PHP) - 3kinds of kinilaw served in a mason jar. We choose the fresh shrimp, tuna and tanigue. I love the mixture of flavor of their kinilaw. I just find the shrimp a bit malansa.
128293Fried Oyster Sisig (370PHP) - Wow this one is good. Love the crunchiness while retaining the softness of the oyster at its core. A must try.
127858Sizzling Sinigang (520PHP) - one of their best seller. A sinigang version of bulalo steak. beef short ribs with gravy and french beans. The gravy was infused sampaloc flavor giving it a sinigang flavor. Not bad but I prefer bulalo steak. Its just a bit weird for a gravy to have an asim taste. Hehe.
🦐Sugpo con Mayonesa ((720PHP) - this one is really expensive but tasted really good. the creamyness with the oiliness of it. The prawn was superb! My favorite in our order.

Overall Locavore really deliver in bringing good flavor and twist to tried and tested filipino food. A bit pricey but worth it from time to time.

This isnt really 2/5. But if half value is allowed, I'd probably give a 2.5. :) Service was a huge let down for me in this restaurant...

We were two when we visited the establishment but we had huge bags with us (coming from a flight). When we came in, no one ushered us in. Then, when we were able to have someone's attention, he had this disapproving look on this two people with huge pieces of luggage. Upon speaking with him, we asked for a larger dining area/table (because obviously, only one table was occupied in the restaurant that time and we had luggage with us). This Mr. rude guy refused, and advised that the restaurant was fully booked so he asked us to sit by the middle 2 seater table.
In the end, after our meal and after 1.5 hours in the restaurant, no one sat at the bigger table we earlier requested. Please note that we visited around 4 pm on a weekday to have super late lunch and thus, there really were not much guests around. Also, Mr. Rude guy was consistently annoying throughout the service that we purposely sought attention from other service crew members. I should note that the other guys are nice and more polite.
Food was ok. I had high hopes on sizzling sinigang. The twist was pretty cool however it seemed a tad too salty for a sinigang. I liked lechon with oyster sisig though. But for the taste and amount of serving, I believe the meals were overpriced.

Here's our promised next visit.

This time, we tried their best selling- lechon and oyster sisig and one that is new to their growing master recipes- bacon bbq skewers. Awe I say. It was incredibly delicious, with the right blend of each flavours in one. I was really amazed on how they came up on a filipino delicacies with a twist.

After dining, we went for a bottle of brew kettle to chill out the scrumptious night. Well spent dinner once again. Definitely will be coming back for more. Surprise us on our next visit, Locavore.

Ordered the usual; Sugpo Con Mayonesa, Lechon Oyster Sisig and Tarta Mangga.

Decided to order two new dishes, Garlic Baby Squid and Pakbet Ratatouille.

And as usual, they were delicious! I especially loved the baby squids. Haha! Super cute, and yummy!

Wala pa din talagang kupas ang kasarapan ng Locavore.

P. S. : Sobrang gutom ko di ko napansin blurred yung pics.

Locavore is one of my favorite go to resto for classic Filipino foods with a twist. Been eyeing this for quite some time until I finally booked a date to try their own comfort food indulgence. Place was very delightful and the food aroma was to die for. It was an early dinner and we just waited 15-20 minutes serving time.

What we ordered:
Street Food Platter 180
-It includes fish balls, squid balls, kikiam and kwek-kwek which I lurved.

Kinilaw Platter 350
-Not so much of kinilaw but from his taste, it was a great flavour indeed.

Kare-kare Wings 260
-I love their chicken wings coated with sweet-spicy peanut sauce, side with manggang hilaw and singkamas. Good Match.

Ginataang Kaldereta 520
-Their beef short ribs has mouthful of flavors that I love. It goes well with the mix of light cheese, gata, garlic and some spice in it. Perfect indeed.

Steamed Organic White Rice 55
-Plain as it is to savour all the flavors of the treat we have in the table.

Torta Mangga 220
-This was the higlight of my night as I am a sweet tooth kinda-girl. Super delicious. Must try!

It was a feastly dinner we had that night and comforting too. You can even watch the chef and crew cooked your food from the window through them. Staff were accomodating but not that cheerful but its okay. It didn't alter the service they gave anyhow. Ambiance is pleasant. Great for a cozy and relaxing date or bonding with friends.

I would love to try their other organic delicacies next time we visit there. I saw that they've added a lot in their menu. That excites me more.
