Locavore at Burgos Circle, BGC

It was a day after hubby’s birthday, and dining at Locavore in BGC was his post-birthday treat. Our son was having an upset stomach then, and all he wanted with rice was hot soup. That prompted hubby to order Pho Lalo. We couldn’t think of anything else to pair with it, so we just went for Oyster Sisig.

Pho Lalo, Php700.00

Pho Lalo sounds like Bulalo, right? And it looks like Bulalo, too, except that it has hofan noodles, garlic, cilantro, calamansi and bean sprouts, aside from bone marrow and beef shank. Boy, this was hearty and flavorful! And the meat was so tender! I loved the crisp veggies, too! My only suggestion when you order this beef dish at Locavore is to consume it while it’s hot. It’s not as heartwarming when it’s cold as the grease becomes a little more obvious.

This bone from our Pho Lalo is humongous!

Lechon and Oyster Sisig, Php380.00

This Lechon and Oyster Sisig is another sinful dish and also quite good. The combination of the two main ingredients’ chewy and soft textures is delightful, too. However, this doesn’t seem to be the best complement for Pho Lalo. Both dishes are rich in flavor, so they have a tendency to overpower each other.

Samalamig “Sago’t Gulaman”, Php80.00

Because the sun was up when we went to Locavore, I was in the mood for some Samalamig “Sago’t Gulaman”. I enjoyed every bit of the soft, small tapioca pearls and equally tiny jelly squares of this sweetened-just-right cool drink. I downed the entire glass even before our food was served. Lol!

It was a nice post-birthday lunch for hubby at Locavore. Our only regret was that our son didn’t enjoy it as much as hubby and I did because of his tummy problem. Oh well, we can always go back and next time we’ll make sure that his tummy is A-Okay.

    Real comfort food. The pho lalo looks good and filling 😀.

  6. EINz says:

    Oh well, humongous buto talaga! Haha. Kakagulat lang…
    kaka miss din yung sago’t gulaman, I liked yung home made gulaman na niluluto pa yung arnibal, not yung ready mixed na.

  7. Gilian says:

    I’m not yet a fan of bulalo, that looks like a great serving,but sisig is love for me. I might like that oyster sisig. And that sago and gulaman. I’m abroad so I find it something very precious. Haha.

  8. Mommy Levy says:

    Grabe ang laki ng buto. Looks yummy though, sarap ng bone marrow 🙂

  9. Michelle says:

    I am so intrigued with the lechon and oyster sisig! I love sisig kasi. Meron pala sa BGC, malapit lapit samin. Hopefully we’ll be able to try Locavore soon! 😀

    The best bulalo I’ve tasted so far is Leslie’s. Ang bongga ng buto ng Pho Lalo. I love samalamig. I’ll tell this to my husband. Favorite nya ang sisig and seafood and I’m sure he would want to try lechon and oyster sisig 🙂

  11. Jhanis says:

    The pho lalo looks like a deconstructed bulalo! Would love to try that, medyo pricey lang. Hehehe

  12. May Palacpac says:

    At first sight, I thought it was bulalo but then it’s not, haha. Ang laki nga ng buto! Did you eat the insides of it? Cause that’s my favorite part of the bone, haha. Anyway, Pho lalo, is that sort of Vietnamese?

    Locavore is not too far from here. I’ll keep it in mind for our next date.

  13. I’ve heard about their Sizzling Sinigang. I hope I get to try this resto sometime.

  14. I’m craving for that sago gulaman! I’ve tried their branch in Kapitolyo.

  15. Locavore has some interesting items on the menu bu I haven’t tried it yet.

  16. i hope i could try this some day
    medyo out muna ako sa mga meat

  17. this is another must-try resto in BGC, I am interested with the sisig

  18. Janice says:

    We’re always in BGC but have never tried this place. That Pho Lalo looks delish! It definitely looks like bulalo.

  19. Alaine says:

    One of our favorite restos in BGC! Always wanted to write something about them kaso, sarap kainin agad ng food pagdating sa table!

  20. I want this for lunch. And it’s only 4:29 a.m. as of this posting! Hahaha! I’ll remember this restaurant when I’m in the capital:)

  21. Ayi says:

    Saw this restaurant but never got the chance to try it. I’m too tamad to go to BGC since it’s too far from me. Hahaha. Will check this out the next time I’m in the area 🙂

  22. Macy Santos says:

    Been to Locavore in Pasig several times and my favorite is the Sizzling Sinigang. Now after reading I would certainly give Pho Lalo a try..but I make sure I will dine under the pouring rain..perfect comfort food.

  23. TweenselMom says:

    The Lechon and Oyster sisig must be good. Locavore sounds foreign and peaks my interest. Will check this spot soon.

  24. Their food are interesting. I find that Pho Lalo truly intriguing. Yes, it seems like bulalo.

    Would love to try their dishes as well. Bringing with me my boys would certainly make the trip more fun. Surely they would find that Pho Lalo interesting as well.

  25. Dane says:

  26. Badet Siazon says:
