Two and a half weeks in the Philippines.  A whirlwind of activities -- mainly meeting with missed family members and friends.  Add that to the country's extra special Christmas festivities (iba talaga ang Pasko sa 'Pinas!  I swear), and the family and I found ourselves tired (with matching aching legs and feet); but with hearts bursting with love due to those who took time off to meet us.  :)

Oh!  And our holiday coincided with the Husband's and mine's wedding anniversary.  So off we went and had an "us" only date (and believe me, it was a feat in itself.)  Our destination?  YOUR LOCAL in Makati.

YOUR LOCAL, Makati, Philippines

Nondescript and tucked in a small street in Legaspi Village, YOUR LOCAL is a hip bistro serving their own interpretation of select Southeast Asian dishes.

Lamb Rendang (Php530)
Our choices?  Lamb Rendang (Php530) for the Husband and Torched Salmon Donburi (Php540) for me.

Up close

Rendang is a type of spicy meat dish originally from Indonesia.  Nowadays you can also find variations of it in Malaysia, Singapore, and Brunei.

YOUR LOCAL's version is spicy enough, meat tender, and partnered with a good helping of black rice and egg.

Torched Salmon Donburi (Php540)

Torched Salmon Donburi -- medium cooked salmon (torched after) partnered with shitake black rice, among other umami goodies.  The roasted salmon skin adds a nice crunchy texture in each bite.

Each serving is good for 2, but if you're feeling indulgent, enjoy one whole dish for your very own.
