There are plenty of restaurants serving Filipino cuisine abound in Los Angeles, where the largest concentration of Filipinos can be found, outside of the Philippines. A common observation, however, is that ", there are no formal sit-down Filipino restaurants in the Los Angeles area,", as stated by many patrons in the area. My parents have often lamented the fact that if they wanted to treat business associates, visiting friends and family to fine dining, Pinoy style, in LA, there wasn't a place to bring them. So, they decided to open one themselves. Now, Pinoys in LA have the option of enjoying traditional Filipino cuisine with a great ambient setting,", explained Michelle, daughter of Atty. and Mrs. Ocampo. Salakot stands beautifully, two stories high, with large windows all around providing ample sunlight. An entertaining see-through glass for patrons to observe their meals being freshly prepared by Salakot's top chefs provides a fine touch. Salakot's tan tiles and custard walls are accented with long and elegant curtains, mahogany stairs and a dark brown-trimmed chandelier located in the heart of the restaurant. We wanted to provide a venue for future Filipino community leaders' meetings or banquets for birthdays and other special occasions. The Historic Filipinotown is the only one of its kind in the United States and we consider it a blessing to have this opporunity to share our dreams with others,", says Atty. Ocampo. ", We hope Salakot becomes a legacy for the Filipino people,", added Mrs. Ocampo.
