 SALT  steakhouse is located in Fermina st. corner Enriquez,  a remote place sandwiched between A Venue and Rockwell area. 


SALT  steakhouse is a restaurant with a purpose–to bind people together in wisdom and food. As I interviewed one of its owners, Jobet dela Cruz, I found out that SALT  steakhouse is just almost two months old. He and his buddies, now co-owners, were offered the place where SALT now stands at a very low price despite big names fighting over the property. After realizing that the property was available exactly on the day that they prayed for was a big sign from God and a go signal for them to start SALT. Now,  SALT  steakhouse is a restaurant that doesn’t just serve quality food at a friendly price but also gathers its customers together in wisdom and love.
