Over the course of 50 ambitious weeks, Yana travelled across all 50 states in America as part of her ongoing SALO Project, a series of underground pop-up dinners that educated, informed, and introduced people to our beloved food.

But for now, she is home. Teaming up with and Your Local, for PAMINTA, a one night only, exclusive dinner. On May 31, 2015 at 7:00 pm, Yana Gilbuena will be cooking alongside Kenneth Francisco and Denny Antonino of Your Local, bridging her advocacy with the restaurant’s philosophy.

About Our Collaborators:

Your Local

A year-old stud in the Legaspi neighborhood by Chef Denny Antonio and Nicco Santos, Your Local is ballsy enough to fuse various Asian cuisines together, and come up with something entirely their own. “Your Local is inspired by Legaspi and the diversity of its residents. It’s a place where locals and expats can get together and enjoy a meal and good conversation,” says Denny Antonio, one of the chefs and partners. “Your Local is all about personal service where everyone knows your name and you aren’t just a customer, but a friend.”

Like the menu, the design of Your Local is also an evolution. Originally, the partners wanted an industrial feel with concrete, wood and steel. The subway tiles were a New York touch that both chefs liked, and from there grew the warm industrial look it has now. “One expat from New York said it looked his butcher shop back home, while a Brit said it reminded of a pub he used to go to,” Denny says. That’s what Your Local is really about—a place for you to feel at home, wherever you are from.
