The Main Dishes
Locavore Mac’s Boneless Fried Chicken is one of their bestsellers and often matched with beer and drinks. It’s a house specialty glazed boneless fried chicken. It can be a little bit salty but if you are drinking beer, the saltiness is a great compliment.
Sizzling Sinigang one of the dishes you should try out. They use beef short ribs and sautéed with French beans. They used sampaloc gravy and garlic confit for its flavors.
In ordering in a Filipino restaurant who could ever forget not to order, the ever loved dish the Kare-Kare. The usual kare-kare has ox tails and well known as “tuwalya” or the beef tripe. Nevertheless, here at Locavore they made it into chicken wings. A six pieces of chicken wings and glazed with kare-kare. Served with buttermilk ranch dressing, singkamas, manga and bagoong.
Another must try is the Ginataang Kalabasa. Those people who wanted vegetables and pork in just one dish. It is served with Locavore Porkchops and shrimp. Mixed with puree kalabasa and with gata and French beans.
Before you end your dining experience at Locavore, we would recommend you should go for desserts. During our dining experience we tried the Turon con Leche and the Torta Manga.
The Turon con Leche is made of puff pastry, leche flan and salted egg Dulce de Gatas. It is served warm so that you can savor the creaminess of the leche flan and the salted egg Dulce de Gatas.
While the Torta Manga is served chilled. It has Mangga, Meringue, tablea and dulce de leche.
Both desserts it’s a must try and if your into staying late and partying might as well get a bottle of Sierra Madre Beer.
