If you frequent Makati restaurant Your Local, chances are you (or someone at your table) order the persistent smash hit in a bowl, the Salmon Donburi. Perfectly cooked salmon kissed by fire rests on shitake black rice. Additional ingredients come into play to create an irresistible umami experience in every spoonful: briny mentaiko meets a combination of oboro, ebiko and salmon skin.
The restaurant adds another luscious donburi into their entree lineup, and it can quite possibly be your next favorite dish in Your Local that it becomes your regular order. Truffle lovers, turn your attention to the Truffle Aburi Pork Chasyu.
While the metro is still in MECQ, Your Local can still be a part of your regular diet through pick-up and delivery. This new donburi is yours at P517, and is a heavy-hitter. While truffle dishes are inherently rich to the point that you prefer to pass around the plate to share, this bowl is so good you’ll probably scarf it down on your own. Not that it isn’t filling — it is. It’s just that you cannot stop putting mouthful after mouthful because of the explosiveness of its flavors, that the next thing you know is that you’re feeling too stuffed (but with no regrets).
The slices of chasyu migrates from ramen bowl to rice bowl, and Your Local slow-roasts the pork belly aburi, making every slice fork-tender. The buttery softness of the meat complements the truffle aioli, once you mix everything in well with the rice. There are bursts of zest and freshness with every spoonful because of the onion leeks and pickled onions, balancing out the unctuous pork and truffle duo.
A bowl of rice topped with flavorful pork and finished off with succulent sauce. It’s crave-worthy comfort food whenever you want to feel like treating yourself. And with uncertain times like these, I think I’m not alone in turning to food for comfort — it’s a love language we can enjoy at the comfort of our homes, and something we can send over to our friends and family to enjoy.
