When it comes to dining options in Makati, Your Local has always been one of the people's go-to places, may it be for a hefty meal, lunch meetings, or for some drinks after a long day or week at work.
Located in Legazpi Village, this restaurant is known for serving dishes that put the spotlight on the flavors of Southeast Asian cuisine, while still making sure that it's uniquely theirs. Some of the favorites you'll get to enjoy here are their Laksa Fettucine, Beef Rendang Buns, and Feel Good Chicken.
Just recently, this neighborhood restaurant has also introduced a breakfast menu, available from 8AM to cater to the early birds in the area.
Here are 6 of the dishes from Your Local, as well as the drinks that's best paired with them:
Coconut Gula Melaka Pancakes
What's a breakfast menu without some good ol' pancakes? One of the dishes you shouldn't miss from this new menu is their Coconut Gula Melaka Pancakes, which are basically coconut and chia pancakes, topped with kaya jam, gula Melaka (palm sugar), and mangoes.
If you've loved the restaurant's famous Beef Rendang Buns, then make sure to try its breakfast counterpart, Beef Rendang Eggs Benedict. This spin on the Indonesian dish is made with buttered English muffins, beef in spicy sauce, pickled cucumbers, 64-degree eggs, and a sambal hollandaise.
They also offer their Chorizo and Avocado Toast, which is basically buttered sourdough, topped with spiced avocado mash, crumbled chorizo, kesong puti, 64-degree eggs, and the Vietnamese-style nuoc ham salad.
Another option for those who love to have bread for breakfast is their Fresh Fried Egg and Salmon Sandwich, which has fried egg, smoked salmon and bacon jam all in one squid ink bun and served with a side of fries.
For those who can't live without rice, you can never go wrong with the Your Local's Glazed Pork Nasi Lemak, their take on the popular Malay dish. This dish has braised pork belly paired with the classic ingredients to a good nasi lemak: sweet and spicy anchovies, peanuts, fried eggs, and, of course, coconut rice.
You can also go for their Salmon Otak Otak, a dish commonly cooked in Indonesia and Malaysia. This has pan-fried salmon cakes wrapped in banana leaves and served with coconut rice, and shredded egg.
Your Local also introduced two new drinks to their menu, both of which still have the flavors of Southeast Asia. Choose from Purple Coconut – a drink made with dragonfruit and coconut milk – and Pandan Gula Melaka – which would remind you of our own gulaman, and is made with pandan, palm sugar, lime, and tapioca pearls.
