Now Open in Kapitolyo: Locavore Kitchen x Drinks


Locally grown, locally produced, and locally made -- these are what the new Filipino restaurant in Kapitolyo, Pasig, want to champion.

Locavore Kitchen x Drinks is named after an actual term that describes a diner who consciously eats food that is grown, raised, or produced locally.

Consuming local also means supporting local, which is a great aspect of this type of lifestyle.
For their food, Locavore is proud that it supports local farmers, while their drinks boast of locally brewed beers like Joe's Brew, San Mig, and Privo Praha; their signature cocktails also infuse local fruits and ingredients like calamansi, Bukidnon pineapple, Batangas dalandan, and labuyo.

Macaron Madness: 12 Places to Get These French Confections in Manila

Macaron Madness: 12 Places to Get These French Confections in Manila

First thing's first: Macaron and Macaroon are two different, delightful things to nibble on. While both are round, bite-sized sweets, they pertain to two different kinds of food, and are pronounced as spelled (macaron like 'macaroni' minus the i, and macaroon with its last syllable rhyming with 'noon'). Macaroons are coconut-based cookies that may or may not have almonds, and locally, you have probably enjoyed eating this by way of Goldilocks Bakeshop's chewy Butter Macaroons with desiccated coconut.

You may as well inhale and entire cake on your own and it's totally fine, because hey, it's only P299 per cake.

12 Restaurants Serving Filipino Dish Sinigang

Your Sinigang Cheat Sheet: 12 Restaurants Serving this Filipino Comfort Food

Just like a breakfast of tapa and longganisa, a hearty lunch of adobo, kare-kare, and nilaga, the Filipino dish Sinigang has nostalgic flavors that lure us back to our favorite mealtime memories of yesteryears, making it a quintessential comfort food. Sometimes, all you need to soothe your weary soul is a bowl of savory and sour, hearty stew, strewn with vegetables, bursting with flavor in every sip.
Traditionally, sinigang's broth is made sour by tamarind, but many souring agents also lend their flavors in the soup--fruits like calamansi, kamias, and guava are  common ingredients used for their sourness. The meats and seafood in the soup vary as well: pork, beef, fish, and shrimp are common proteins used, stewed with assorted fresh vegetables such as gabi, eggplant, kangkong, and okra. Modern recipes get even more playful with their sinigang creations, deconstructing some of the ingredients for crispy versions, or adding different fruits to make the flavor of the broth more complex. Another popular sour stew is the sinampalukang manok, loosely considered the chicken counterpart of sinigang, still using tamarind as its souring ingredient, but distinct with its addition of ginger.

8 Restos Where to get your Cheese Pizza Fix

September 5 is Cheese Pizza Day: 8 restos where to get your cheese fix

The origin of cheese pizza is heavily debated. Some sources say that in ancient Greece, the Greeks covered their flat bread with oils, herbs and cheese. Others claim that it was only in the 19th century when cheese was added on pizzas to create the Margherita variant. While we may never get to the bottom of who created the first cheese pizza, there's one thing we're sure of: humanity is forever thankful to the genius who first thought of adding gooey, stringy, and chewy mozarella cheese on pizzas!

11 Restaurants with Drool-Worthy Desserts Topped with Ice Cream

A la Mode Overload: 11 Restaurants with Drool-Worthy Desserts Topped with Ice Cream


For the sweet-toothed, a meal is not complete without ending it with dessert, and some of them are just extra delicious (and sinful!) when topped with a scoop of ice cream. There's something about ice cream that often brings out the kid in us; and having a cake, a cookie, a pastry, or anything sweet served à la mode presents an indulgent dessert for the sugar-craving palate. The French term 'a la mode' was originally used to describe something in style or in fashion, but it's now commonplace to find it printed on a restaurant's dessert menu as an item served with ice cream (usually it's a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but any flavor will do--we're not picky).
