Last night Loren took me to Fatty's, a terrific vegetarian restaurant in Eagle Rock, where we ordered the most ridiculous appetizer ever invented. It was a plate of salt. No, no, I'm serious. We ordered salt. That was the appetizer. Salt.
In order to properly taste the salt, we were also given small chunks of potatoes to dip in the salt—to fully bring out the salty flavor.
The three different types of salt we were allowed to experience were Hawaii's Alaea Clay Salt, Australia's Murray River Salt, and Denmark's Viking Smoked Sea Salt. I would give you an individual review of each of these salts from around the world, but, well, THEY ALL TASTED LIKE SALT. Salt is salt, mofos!
