Locavore- Pinoy Comfort Food At its Best

Keri   21 Mar , 2015  

I’ve been seeing a lot of Locavore food posts by friends and was pleasantly surprised to find out that it is owned and being run by my friends Alta and Speedy Lyttle, Tin Matic, Carla Mercado, and Charlton Yu.   You know the place serves good food when people go out of their way for it.  Locavore is located in the lower ground of an office building in Kapitolyo.  We could already spot the restaurant from a few hundred meters because the building was well lit and there were numerous cars lined up before it.  The area is pretty big but it was packed,  making  dinner reservations is a must.  Alta mentioned that they have table schedules for dinner- 5pm, 7pm, and 9pm.

Their menu is simple- printed on white paper and attached to a clipboard.  They have a long list of food to choose from.  We wanted to try them all! We settled for the assorted pinoy street food and oyster sisig for our appetizer, for our main course-  crispy kare kare,  sugpo con mayonesa, sizzling sinigang, boneless lechon belly, luglog, and a chore burger, for dessert-  leche flan and turon con leche.
