A word about the experience
Asian Chef Jon Villar welcomes you to The Kings Head - a trendy, exclusive private members club on Kingsland Rd in the heart of Shoreditch - for his brand new dining concept, kicking off 2022 with a BANG!
'Salo-salo' is a gathering and eating together, a traditional way of Filipino dining, where all the dishes are served on banquet style platters in the middle of the communal dining tables in one of the private dining rooms.
Taste the beauty of Filipino cuisine at its best - vegan style!
The Venue: Concealed beneath the facade of a derelict public house, the King’s Head is a haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Inside guests will find an array of unique spaces and dinner will take place in one of the fantastical private rooms. Guests must be 18+ to attend this venue.

What to expect
Absolutely delicious food, great host and lovely venue
Come starving, leave happy. Jonathan made a feast fit for a plant based king..or kingdom, with course after amazing course of vegan goodness. Don't get swooned by the incredible bread at the beginning because you're about to embark on a rich tasting menu with amazing dishes which each could stand alone as a full meal. This was our first vegan tasting menu and boy did it hit. Jonathan was so awesome and friendly and even packed up our leftovers for some next day treats. Highly recommend.
Food was really nice and the fusion of flavours were both fragrant and delicious.
Thank you so much for such a great meal, everything about the evening was just perfect!
