We tried all the breakfast menu items, together with the drinks, and here’s what we recommend.

Coconut Gula Melaka Pancakes

Coconut Gula Melaka Pancakes (₱380). Coconut and chia pancakes, kaya jam, gula melaka, mangoes.

A tropical pancake with the gula melaka mixed into the coconut and chia, with sweet kaya jam and mango for sweetness.

We had to fight with our boys over each bit of kaya and mango to eat with a piece of pancake. Sarap nito!

Cranny Smith (₱220). Cranberries, fresh lemonade, green apple, yuzu.  Passionfruit (₱310) soda, burnt orange juice. Lemonade (₱270) ginger, almond. Earl Grey Pandan Tea (₱215). Pandan, palm sugar, earl grey, tapioca pearls. Sea Salt Lemonade (₱180). Fresh homemade lemonade, sea salt, sprite. Arnie Palmer (₱190). Iced TWG earl grey tea, lemongrass, orange.

We did a taste test of all the drinks, and our favorites were Cranny Smith, Passion Fruit (topped with burnt orange) and Lemonade with ginger and almond.

Smoked Salmon and Egg Sandwich

Smoked Salmon and Egg Sandwich (₱690). Smoked salmon, fresh greens, fried egg, squid ink bun.

Loved the smoked salmon and egg combination, with greens, cheese, and black brioche bun to make the salmon burger special.

The little one enjoyed the fries with cheese and truffle ketchup. 🙂 So easy to please.

Beef Rendang Eggs Benedict

Beef Rendang Eggs Benedict (₱480). Buttered sourdough, beef in spicy coconut sauce, pickled cucumbers, 64deg eggs, sambal hollandaise.

I think this combination did not work with a mushy egg topping, and I still like my beef rendang with rice.

If you are on a staycation in Makati, it’s easy to walk around Legaspi Village and enjoy the Your Local breakfast mornin’ vibe.

Salmon Otak Otak

Salmon Otak Otak (₱500). Pan-fried salmon cakes in banana leaves, ginger rice, shredded egg.

This was like grounded salmon given an otak otak texture, pan-fried in banana leaves and served as a silog version.

Purple Coconut

Purple Coconut (₱190). Dragon fruit, coconut milk.

The best drink for the morning was the dragon fruit shake topped with coconut—so refreshingly unique to start your day.

Feel Good Waffles

Feel Good Waffles (₱380). Waffles. shrimp paste fried chicken, whipped pandan butter, palm sugar syrup.

Chicken with shrimp paste flavor and pandan-flavored waffle with palm-sugar syrup (think taho sweetener).

Glazed Pork Nasi Lemak

Glazed Pork Nasi Lemak (₱450). Coconut rice, braised pork belly, sweet and spicy anchovies, peanuts, fried egg.

Loved the sauce of the pork belly with coconut rice flavor, flossy egg and a sweet and spicy anchovy sauce. Yum!


Final Thoughts

Our favorites are Coconut Gula Melaka Pancakes, Glazed Pork Nasi Lemak and Purple Coconut drink for breakfast. Make sure to go with the family or your team to enjoy and mix and match some of the dishes. Budget about ₱500/head + drinks.

If you are a big group, make sure to reserve the long table facing the window for the best morning light.

Congrats to Chef Natalia and Your Local team for successfully opening Your Local for breakfast!
