SALU, The Filipino Kitchen recently opened its doors to those who’d like to feast on the real, genuine taste of local cuisines.
Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao dishes are made available to all its visitors, no need for plane tickets, Salu got your cravings covered.
“Salu is a Filipino Culinary Authority. We try to explore, experiment and make sure to serve plates that can’t be labeled anything other than tunay na Pinoy.
Romnick Sarmienta and Harlene Bautista, the owners, have shared that this restaurant came from a dream and passion. They want everyone to have a taste of the whole Philippines because there were still native cuisines which remains hidden and undiscovered. They went thru series of immersions for them to be able to discover what each province in this country has to offer when it comes to food.
SALU also stands for the following:
S – inag
A – lab
L – ahi
U – gnayan
Let’s take a look at some of their famous regional cuisine:
Tiyual Itum, a signature black soup from Mindanao
We honor originality and give tribute to the story of each dish because that’s what makes it unique, that’s what makes it real Filipino”, said Chef Janjie Ocoma, also known as Lakwatserong Kusinero, the executive chef of the restaurant.
Another set of interesting eats are called “Likhang Salu”. When creativity meets ingenuity, a fusion of Pinoy to Pinoy food is born.
Try tasting their best sellers:

SALU Fried Chicken
Turmeric Rice to complete every Pinoy’s Menu
Salu Salad for healthier fix!
Of course desserts are must haves. Filipinos love sweets and often ends a bountiful feast with their yummy panghimagas.
Brazo De Kalabasa is one of the house favorites, a healthier take of our favorite soft cake.
And a must try desert is the recently launched Mayon, Salu’s molten lava cake.It has a really good salty surprise inside which gives a twist to that rich dark chocolate cake and filling. It’s not part of the regular menu, so make sure to ask your waiter for it on your visit.
“We want the whole restaurant to feel casual and homey. When you enter a Filipino home there’s always a feeling of warmth and happiness, that’s our basic model for Salu. At the same time we want the guests’ minds and palates to travel para busog ang tiyan at mata, thus the native and locally inspired accents and details unique to each section. You can practically do your selfies everywhere”, said Mr. Allan Cordova, Managing Partner of Salu.
SALU also has partnered with local farmers, poultry providers, and fishermen as their direct supplier as part of their advocacy program. It’s a generous way of giving back what these hardworking people did for each and everyone to have food on our table.
Fall in love with the food and culture all over again by visiting SALU, The Filipino Kitchen at #26B Sct. Fernandez Cor. Sct. Torillo, Bgy. Sacred Heart Quezon City.
