Locavore is a Filipino restaurant and bar that sources its ingredients primarily from organic products from local farms. The restaurant’s name reflects its philosophy of promoting the consumption of locally produced food.
They follow the locavore movement, which advocates for buying food from farmers’ markets or growing food locally because it is fresher, healthier, and better tasting.
The restaurant was founded in 2014 in Pasig City, and it is known for its modern take on traditional Filipino cuisine. The chef, Mikel Zaguirre, has a background in French cuisine and a passion for using fresh, local ingredients.
Locavore also offers a selection of regional goods, including craft breweries, and has a sustainable dining philosophy. The restaurant recently opened a new branch that features a cozier vibe, with private dining rooms, natural materials, and a full bar.
The menu includes four new dishes that are based on the area’s history, in addition to their traditional menu items. Overall, Locavore aims to give a contemporary touch to traditional Filipino cuisine while promoting sustainable and locally sourced food.
