Condé Nast Traveler recently released its list of the Best Restaurants in the World. Listing down 207 restaurants from around the globe, the travel magazine qualified eateries that received special attention from food writers, chefs, diners, and travelers. And the lone Philippine restaurant that made it to the list is Your Local.
Owned by Chef Denny Antonio, Your Local is a small neighborhood bistro located at the unassuming Universal LMS Building in Legaspi Village, Makati City. The restaurant serves up its take on Southeast Asian favorites like chicken rice, pomelo salad, and more.
CNT quoted magazine editor Ashlea Halpern about the Filipino restaurant. “I still dream of the pomelo salad with shrimp, winged beans, wild rocket, yuzu, nam jim, pickled quail eggs, and Thai coconut ‘ice cream.’” Halpern has written for Bon Appetit and New York Magazine.
Along with Your Local, several Asian restaurants also made it to the list including 14 from Japan, six from China, three from Singapore, one each from South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
After this recent development, it may not be far-fetched that soon, the Philippines will have its own Mcihelin-starred restaurant.
Your Local is located on the GF of Universal LMS Bldg., 106 Esteban St. Legaspi Village, Makati City / +632 823 6206 / yourlocal.ph
