My workmates and I went to BGC for an awesome night out, but before we headed out for the late night, we had a sumptuous dinner at Salo, located at The Fort Strip.
Salo is a popular spot for dinner and drink after office hours. This Filipino restaurant replaced the space Shawarma Guys was formerly located, but has retained the take-out window for customers who liked to stay at the al fresco area.
Since we were a group of six, we decided to have the Salo-Salo dishes which is good for 2 to 3 pax.
I requested for my favorite, the Gising-Gising (Php 75).
The serving was more than what I expected, and the taste wasn't disappointing. I loved the amount of heat put in it.
We also had the Sizzling Pork Sisig (Php 160) and Bangus Ala Pobre (Php 215).

I love both the sizzling dishes. I wish I could have more servings. :)
For the hardcore dishes, we also shared the Adobo Spring Chicken (Php 315) and the Kare-Kare (Php 218).

I was surprised with the Adobo Spring Chicken, the meat was well-marinated and the sauce complements it nicely. Fortunately, they served my favorite Filipino dish that evening, the Kare Kare. The serving was more than enough for the price, and the meat and veggies were quite generous.
Salo was a big surprise for me. The food was delicious and quite affordable as we only spent around Php 200 per person. All servings were very huge (including the rice, which can be shared by two persons) and the service was impressive.
Rice bowls and pulutan dishes are also available, along with a wide variety of alcoholic drinks.
I wish this concept will be branched out to other business districts. Kudos to Salo!
