It’s been a while since #danielaate. Well, there’s still been a lot of eating, just a lot less time to share and talk about it because of everything that’s been going on. But the other day I finally got to try one of the restaurants I’ve been wanting to visit for a while now, so I just had to make time to share. Locavore is finally in BGC! Since I rarely find myself in Kapitolyo, I never got the chance to try it out but heard countless good reviews about the place. Thank God the Filipino restaurant finally made its way to Bonifacio Global City, Forbes Town Center, just by the Tipsy Pig and Frank and Dean area. It opened last June 20 if I’m not mistaken. So when my brother wanted to celebrate his birthday, he brought us to the newly opened branch in The Fort.
We got there at 11:30AM, the time we thought it would open, but apparently it opens at 8:00AM. So by the time we arrived we already had to wait for a table. It didn’t take long before someone billed out so we just had enough time to look at the menu before we were seated.
The first thing that caught my eyes were DINUGUANG LECHON AND KIMCHINIGANG. Dinuguan with Lechon and Kimchi in Sinigang?!
For starters we got a favorite, the Kinilaw Platter. For the platter, you could choose three of the four: Tuna, Tanigue, Shrimp or Oysters. We didn’t realize it would come in such small servings, but the cute serving size came in cute mason jars and were really delicious. The Tanigue tasted like the regular Kinilaw I usually have and the Tuna had this really good Mango sauce.
The Gabi chips and dip were also a hit in the table. Crunchy till the end of the meal and the sauce with a hint of spice.
