Gising Gising


at Locavore

-BGC, Taguig, Manila, Philippines-

with the Family

Locavore is Filipino restaurant.  Currently 5 locations in Manila.  Traditional menu, sorta modernized.


The gising gising, for example, featured full-length beans, lightly cooked to a nice al dente, plus additional vegetables, all in a shallot and garlic “confit,” to make for a fresher, more wholesome experience – though I’m not sure that’s what the dish is meant to be.

Tanigue Kilawin (2.5): served in a mason jar and topped with a drizzle of olive oil, but otherwise kinda standard – fresh fish.
Tapsilog (2.0): beef tapa and fried eggs with garlic rice – the gimmick here was serving it in the cooking vessel, which left too much grease in the pan.
