Filipinos have a deep love for Christmas traditions, and coming together to dine during the season. Remember Noche Buenas at home? And putting up your parol as early as September? Locavore takes this love for the holidays and complements it with their specially crafted menu that whisks you back in time to relive the warmth and nostalgia of at-home handaans with time-honored favorites. 

At Locavore, we believe that good food brings people together, and great food makes the experience more intimate and enjoyable. That’s why we made our holiday specials - It's our way of sharing the joy and warmth of this season with our valued patrons,” said Mikel Zaguirre, Chef and Locavore Co-founder.  

It’s all about good food and good company,” he added. 

Locavore precisely knows how important sharing a moment with your loved ones is. The modern Filipino restaurant complements these intimate and enjoyable moments with the right food selection. This Christmas, treat the Family to a Gourmet Filipino Noche Buena with classic dishes that everyone will love.

For an extra kick, try the hottest Antibayotiko, made with a chili-infused Cazadores Reposado with smoked rock salt, or the Melona high ball, a vodka-based spritzer.
