Roving Filipino pop-up The Salo Project, which has been traveling around the nation over the past year, will be at Milkfish this Sunday, January 4, for a special Noche Buena feast, Todd Price Reports. Salo chef Yana Gilbuena will collaborate with Milkfish's Cristina Quackenbush for the "kamayan-style" dinner, which will be served on banana leaves and guests will eat with their hands. The dinner will help benefit kids affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
Lagos, the popular Detroit-based pop-up with raunchy music and Nigerian food from chef Tunde Wey, is heading back to town on January 11 for a double-header at Carrollton Market: "The eight-dish Lagos pop-up will be served family style. Tickets are $55 plus drinks. Seating are at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m." The last time Wey rolled into town, his dinners sold out immediately, so do make reservations right here.
