SALT

Makati Leads - - Urban Bites -

Open­ing a restau­rant is a dream that, for many, stays just a dream. How­ever, while house-hunt­ing, friends Jo­bet dela Cruz, Kevin Ong, and Marco Es­cud­ero came across, and were later of­fered, a highly sought-after com­mer­cial space. The trio saw it as a sign telling them that it was time to re­al­ize what had once seemed far­fetched, and set up their very own restau­rant. Salt is the epit­ome of the hole in the wall—not only is it tucked away in the mid­dle of a res­i­den­tial neigh­bor­hood, its non­de­script and unas­sum­ing look is so wel­com­ing and fa­mil­iar that it almost feels like com­ing home. And for many who have vis­ited Salt since its open­ing

last June, it's be­com­ing just that.

What to ex­pect:

From its no-frills in­te­ri­ors to its menu, Salt keeps things easy and sticks to the es­sen­tials: good food, good company. It's the per­fect place for long talks with friends and fam­ily. And, with the most ex­pen­sive thing on the menu cost­ing P320, it's pocket-friendly, too.

Rec­om­mended:

Though Salt's spe­cialty is its T-Bone Steak (P190), taste their Baked Sal­mon (P320), which is beau­ti­fully sim­ple and so soft that it melts in your mouth. Its sin­fully rich Tartufo Ball (P130) is also a must-try, though it's a tough choice be­tween that and its best-sell­ing Frozen Brazo de Mercedes (P110). SALT, 5887 Fer­mina Street cor­ner En­riquez Street, Pobla­cion, Makati. Open from Tues­day to Satur­day (5:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m.) and on Sun­days from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., and 6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
