Some confuse gastropubs for just merely pubs or bars. Gastropubs actually offer high quality food based on traditional pub recipes. When you dine at Locale Gastrobar, you’ll realize that this is the perfect place to meet with friends, grab a few beers and dine in!
The interiors are simple, casual and cozy. Quite spacious, which I really like. They have different types of seating and offer outdoor seating as well.
They have irresistible promos and offers on different days of the week so make sure to avail of those.
Enough with the ambiance. Let’s begin eating! Thank you to Chef Raffy who prepared this delicious 9-course meal.
Truffled Mozza Balls
This was insanely good. It was just the right kind of cheesy. Mozzarella isnt know to be that tastiest cheese but the way they made it, deep fried in a thin batter and paired with marinara and aioli dip could have made me finish this bucket all by myself. I would definitely order this every visit. Angus Basil Meatballs
Meaty, juicy, just enough flavor. I would’ve liked it to be richer in flavor, tastier and seasoned more but that’s just my personal preference. Taco Salad
Most taco salads get soggy because of their salsa. What I love about their version is that it stays crunchy because they used sour cream which helped prevent it from sogging up. If you feel like getting something light and fresh, order this! Locale Gambas
MMMMMMM! This is probably my ultimate favorite. I love the sauce, I love how the shrimp was cooked. This would go nicely with their draft beer or a really cold drink. Deep Fried Grilled Cheese
Perfect crispy outer layer and melt-in-your-mouth goodness right here. And I always pair my sandwiches with chips so this is just perf. It’d make a lunch meal or merienda depending on your appetite. MMM! Salmon Risotto
I like how creamy the risotto was. The salmon was cooked a few minutes more than I would’ve liked but it still goes really well with the risotto. The portion size of the salmon is somewhat big and more than enough. Kahlua Ribs
Falls off the bone, tangy bbq taste! Blue Marlin Curry
Not a big fan of curry but I love how the menu includes a vast array of dishes. My friends quite enjoyed this one! Foie Gras Burger
Can you see that huge chunk of foie gras? Well if you love duck fat, greasy burgers, and a side of fries, this is a must-try!
To be honest, Locale proved to be better than Draft. Their prices are much more affordable. Their BIG ASS draft beer is just Php150! Can you believe that? I surely couldn’t. I have to go back again and bring my friends with me. Cheers to the weekend!
