Filipino Popup Dinner in DC April 6th

Ed. Note: Columbia Height’s Filipino restaurant is aiming for a May/June opening on 11th Street.

From an email:

“Yana through her project Salo is creating Filipino popup meal a week in a every US state over 50 weeks. She is on a gastronomical diplomatic tour to introduce the US to filipino food and culture. You eat on banana leaves with your hand. It’s an epic project. Salo is coming to DC on April 6th [620 G Street, SE]. Part of the proceeds will be going to the Tsunami relief fund for the Philippines. I believe folks for the Filipino embassy will be at this one in DC. You can check out the menu and book seats here.
