ABOUT SALO Series SALO Series aims to raise community and cultural awareness through food. Yana Gilbuena, a designer and creative, started SALO as a means of bringing people together through this cultural and culinary journey. By applying a designer’s perspective, Yana creates a dinner experience that is carefully orchestrated to showcase the dialogue between dishes: how the flavors and textures interact; the sequence and flow; as well as the interaction between the diners, as they're exploring the Philippines through their palates.
