I’ve been to many places but none of them left an impact on me like Locals Only did. Maybe it’s because they have this awesome current promo of half priced wine and buck a shuck oysters everyday from 5-8pm, or it’s the awesome service, kickass atmosphere and delicious tapa style food. Whatever they’re doing, they’re doing it right.
In the past 3 weeks, we’ve been back about 5 times in total now, and trust me when I say this, it’s definitely worth it. Hey-o to our great server Jessica who we always see there and probably thinks we don’t go anywhere else haha.
Menu provides you with a variety of reasonably priced dishes with Asian inspired fusion flavours.
Panko Fried Chicken
One of the main reason why we keep going back to Locals Only
Lil Pork Belly
Going Back to Cauliflower
Red Snapper Cerviche
Atmosphere: Chill and laid back, there’s cool graffiti doodles all over. It does make it rather hard to take photos of the food but you’re graced with the presence of real candles and fresh flowers on each table.
Service: The service’s always great. Sometimes it’s a little hard to get the attention of servers especially when the place is packed with people, but the servers tend to make their rounds making sure everyone’s good with stuff.
Food: The food’s asian fusion inspired and are all tapa styled dishes which makes it perfect to share given how affordable it is as well. I especially like the cerviche but find it to be a little too liquid-y at the bottom of the bowl. You won’t see individual plates or utensils used much aside from those little sticks or tiny spoons as you can most likely use your hands.
Absolutely adore this place. You can probably find me there at least 2-3 times a month as long as they have the promo going still. My heart would break if they remove half priced wine and buck a shuck everyday 🙁
